How did Princess Lilibet and Prince Archie retain their titles?

8th March 2023 marked the christening of the one-year-old Lilibet Diana, the youngest of the Sussex family. In a private ceremony consisting of exclusively close confidants of her parents, the archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev, John Taylor, christened Princess Lilibet Diana. Following the ceremony, Buckingham palace made no delay in confirming the titles of the estranged royal children as the sixth and seventh in line to the British throne, respectively. 

The controversies regarding the titles had rooted in Prince Harry’s decision to give up on his HRH designation upon the renunciation. Back then, a palace source had stated that “the use of the style HRH would come through their father”. And Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, was of course in abeyance.
