The Queen will reportedly "reach out" to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to discuss Archie’s "birthright" to have a title following their interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Archie’s mum, Meghan, shared her upset over him not being given a "title in the same way" as Her Majesty’s other grandchildren.

She told Oprah it is her son’s birthright to be a prince and the Firm does not have the "right" to "take it away."

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said it was initially thought Megan and Harry did not want a title for their son so he can "grow up normally," but the couple’s recent interview suggests otherwise.

Mr Fitzwilliams says the issue of Archie comes down to Royal rules dating back to 1917.

He said the two-year-old will get the opportunity to have the title of HRH when Prince Charles ascends the throne, but for now he is an Earl.

The expert said: "The issue of the title, I had always understood they didn't want a title and wished for him to grow up normally.

"What is significant there, under the existing rules he has the title or Earl of Dumbarton if he wished to use it and secondly when Charles ascends the throne, he will get the HRH."

Mr Fitzwilliams also claims there have been reports Her Majesty may seek to discuss a title for Archie in the "future."

He told Express.co.uk: "There have been reports that the Queen will be reaching out to Harry to find out further issues which will no doubt include discussions on the future."

The expert added that "healing" discussions will be a key fixture of the Queen, Prince Harry and Meghan's future together.

How the family choose to resolve the fall out of Megxit, and the Oprah interview, will rely on these "important" chats, but it is not clear what will "transpire."

Mr Fitzwilliams said: "Healing is going to be an important part of this and how precisely it turns out and transpires, I don't know.

"The issue with the title wasn't linked to anything to do with race.

"It was under the current rules which date back to 1917.

"But if it is wished that they have one that is something that would be done."
