I think they should have an HRH, but it should be an honorific and the kids should be expected to earn a living. Fundamentally I think the HRH isn't that much of a threat to politicians or to anyone and the Windsors should be worried about more than just PR. Family is family, blood is blood and if they get the HRH, it won't do any harm. Thing is, that a title doesn't mean that the kids will be by their nature useless or slovenly, just as someone without a title is automatically hard working, innocent, and angelic. If the kids are raised to learn a trade, get a skill, and then become involved in civic life then that is where they will go and their title will help, but not be a way for them to live a feckless life. Very little is set in stone.

^^ Excellent point, esp as some of the queen's grandkids don't have titles & styles (also Zara & Peter!), no need for her great-grandchild(ren) to have any. Heirs only (eg once Chuck ascends there also is no need to elevate H's kid/s titles/ styles).

^ No, "HRH" is not needed. In Norway as example only the heir is "HRH", the other kids are "HH". If Zara, Peter, Louise & James can live without any, so can others.

These titles also create problems and further an "HRH" demands curtseys.

eg when Diana was stripped of her "HRH" and a woman on an engagement pointedly curtsied to her pointing out that it doesn't diminish respect or some such as she lost it, because after the stripping of the "HRH" no one needed to curtsey to Diana any more.

There's more to it than just a bunch of letters in their passports or form of address.

^^^ So only George was entitled and it should have stayed that way. Other countries have an "only monarch & heir" system and it works pretty well (the Dutch, Norwegians for example, and the Swedes but CG keeps trotting out his son and wife for some reason thumbsdown )

Also if these dolts want "normalcy" as they claim, then they won't challenge the rule as is.

Not that the Winds follow their own rules, just as one example look at the Camb sprogs.. All 3 have titles when it should be only G.

None of them should have titles. None - that said, neither should Harry and MeAgain's sprog. Bad enough when the parents have earned nothing.

I think it's up to Charles. He may be so ego driven he would demand all the grandchildren be HRHs.

The reason they had to extend the HRH to all the children of the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales was that they didn't know what gender the baby was but they were in the process of changing the succession to the crown to allow a first born daughter to inherit over a younger brother.

Had George and Charlotte been born the other way round with no changes to the Letters Patent about HRHs then George would still have been HRH but Charlotte, the future Queen, would have been born as Lady Charlotte. Of course they could have waited and issued the Letters Patent for a girl on the day she was born but that would have been messy in the long run and given a poor message to the child and the public - better to give it to all from birth.

I'm kind of ok with the Cambs' kids but Harry's or Eugenie's or Beatrice's - too many people too full of themselves. It's too much.

^^^ The due date changes from January to late April. That's too much of a difference. The imminent delivery news came from Megan herself on the Christmas walk. This was her mission - to get people to think she's 9 months pregnant already. That and gracing as many royals as possible with her patronizing pat on the back. So, this is all M trying to stir the pot. I wonder how brf will respond to that.

Why do you think that was her mission?

Since she's gotten mostly everything from the royal family that she's put out there, it wouldn't surprise me if they go as far to get her an instant family like the Clooneys. cleary she's been wearing padding. To me, it looks like she's caught in a web f er lie and expects Harry to sort it out for her as he said in the engagement interview that no matter what comes out, they'll face it together, or some such crap.
This was here at the event yeterday.

There is no way this is a carrying uterus. It looks like she carries that baby in a hiatal hernia.

I just could not believe these people might have actually resorted to THAT level of shenanigans! 
Never mind few get pregnant on command (so fast) at this age.

These people are insane. Certified.
 Considering her nature and how she left her family behind, I wouldn't be shocked she could be her own little racist, being ashamed of her own child coming out with the "wrong" features. So they may have decided to get children differently but parade a fake baby bump for the dolty crowds.
I'm ready to bet that child/twins will look like a Scandinavian fairy.

Good grief.

BUMPING ALONG Pregnant Meghan Markle’s belly button has ‘popped’ hinting she could be in her third trimester and the baby is using up all the ‘spare space’ it can
It typically happens when the baby grows to take up the spare space in her body, and the uterus puts pressure on the mum’s abdomen.
This can cause the belly button to “pop”, typically in the second or third trimester, and is nothing to worry about.
"A woman who’s got an 'innie' often finds this becomes an “outie” sometime after mid-pregnancy, often between 26 and 36 weeks.
The third trimester of pregnancy lasts from the 29th to the 40th week.
All the Palace has confirmed is that the baby is “due in spring”, with many experts predicting a March, which would put Meghan in her third trimester.
The Sun’s Royal Correspondent Emily Andrews speculated that we could see the royal baby being born in “March or early April”.

How convenient for EA to know when the delivery of the baby will be. Why is brf going along with this sham of a pregnancy. Shame on them.

Duchess STILL on duty! Pregnant Meghan shows no sign of slowing down amid reports she'll work up until her due date - with yet ANOTHER outing scheduled for next week

Her baby is due in the next few months, but the Duchess of Sussex shows no signs of slowing down.

Pregnant Meghan, 37, who is expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry this spring, is continuing to keep a busy schedule packed with royal engagements.

The mother-to-be has already stepped out once in London this week and had her first joint outing of 2019 with Harry scheduled for Merseyside on Monday.

Today it was announced the couple will also make an appearance on Wednesday to watch Cirque du Soleil's TOTEM at the Royal Albert Hall, as part of a fundraising campaign for Harry's charity Sentebale.

^Since she is a severe Narcissist and what she's doing is not work, missing out on opportunities to show up for cameras just because she is pregnant, would have been insane for someone like her.

All the better that she is pregnant. So much more attention and adulation to garner at...uh-hm...work.
Until the very last second.

Watch her adopting the sanctimonious "working mom" title the moment the baby pops up.
We'll have another engagement the very next day post-birth.
She will be ready to "lean in".

How else is she going to construct the narrative that shows her superiority to her "lazy" sister in law?

^ You read her like an open book. The only thing is - the plan is great but no matter what she does, she's not winning in the PR games against Kate.

Kate was lazy even before Meghan showed up. Meghan being present does not make any difference, at least to me, in my assessment of Kate.

^^It is, in fact, quite fascinating to see the public's leanings towards one or the other.
Most people always feel a need to take a side so they can have a hero / anti-hero framework. So far, based on what I see on cursory visits in yahoo or DM, etc - the royally-interested public seem to lean 50-50, predictably so.
If MM is trying too hard with her "modern, working woman/mother" narrative, it may backfire simply because KM will be seen as trying less hard and just being who she is.

 Meghan told a member of the crowd (during her engagement at Birkenhead) that she is 6 months pregnant: https://twitter.com/emynash/status/1084782642879451137

That would make it an April birth I guess, and a July conception.
