A royal expert has argued that the ‘advantage of being a half-Royal in the States will be outweighed’ as Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet grow up.

Royal expert Tom Quinn has raised concerns about the future of Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, describing them as a “time-bomb waiting to go off” and predicting potential struggles ahead for the young royals.

Archie and Lilibet, who currently reside in America with their parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle following their departure from the Royal Family, may face challenges in finding meaningful roles as adults, according to Quinn.

Quinn expressed his apprehension, telling the Mirror: “The time-bomb waiting to go off is Archie and Lillibet as half-Royals in America.

“There may be some interest in them, but it will wear thin quickly in a country that admires rags-to-riches energy and determination and dislikes inherited privilege unless it is combined with charitable or other work.

“The advantage of being a half-Royal in the States will be completely outweighed by the massive difficulties Archie and Lillibet will have finding a role as adults. They will be like star child actors who find themselves forgotten as adults.”

The Duke of Sussex is reportedly preparing to attend a special service at St. Paul’s Cathedral on May 8 to mark the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

However, uncertainty remains regarding whether Meghan, Archie, or Lilibet will accompany Harry on this visit.

Since stepping back from royal duties, Meghan has made infrequent visits to London, attending Queen Elizabeth’s funeral but not King Charles III’s coronation, which Harry attended alone.

Quinn also suggested that the children could have had a more promising future in the UK, but this opportunity was lost when Meghan and Harry decided to step back from their royal duties.

“The future they could have had as real royals has been snatched away”, he said. “And Archie and Lillibet may just end up living on the wealth and fame of their parents and doing very little in the way of work.”

Documents submitted to Companies House in the UK show that Prince Harry amended his residency status for Travalyst, an organization he founded, to reflect his primary residence as the US rather than Britain.
