Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have two children, Archie and Lilibet.
In 2020, the couple decided to move to the United States and stop performing royal duties, so some are asking if their children are now U.S. citizens.
How old are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s eldest son was born on May 6, 2019 at 5:26 am at Portland Hospital in London.
This makes Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor 3 years old.
At two months old, Archie was baptized with water from the Jordan River in a private chapel at Windsor Castle.
He is sixth in line to the throne after his father Harry.
On June 4, 2021, the couple welcomed their second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
She is now 1 year old and was born in the Cottage Hospital Emergency Department in Santa Barbara, California, USA.
Her name honors both the late Queen Elizabeth II, known as Lilibet in her youth, and Princess Diana, the mother of Prince Harry.
She is seventh in line to the throne after her brother Archie.

After the Queen’s death, both Archie and Lilibet took the title of HRH, becoming Prince and Princess.
This is a protocol established by the Queen’s grandfather, King George V, which states that the children and grandchildren of the sovereign have automatic rights to HRH and the title of Prince or Princess.
Are Archie and Lilibet US citizens?
Both Archie and Lilibet have dual citizenship.
Archie was born in England, so he automatically got British citizenship, but he was also granted American citizenship because his mother, Meghan, is American.
Lilibet, on the other hand, was born American since Duchess Meghan gave birth in California, but thanks to her father Harry’s British roots, she also has dual American and British citizenship.
The family currently resides in the United States, and it is unknown if Harry will eventually obtain American citizenship.
By marrying Meghan Markle, Harry becomes a permanent resident of the United States and is eligible to become a U.S. citizen.
However, so far there is no news about whether he has applied for dual citizenship or for a green card.
