3. All staff (child care, housekeeping, gardening) do not live on premises but come in on a daily or several days during the week.
4. All staff (child care, housekeeping, gardening) do not live on premises but come one-two times a week and the occasional extra day when required.



I don't know about California, but I think the most common option in the US for wealthy families is to have a housekeeper/ cook who comes in evey day, but doesn't live with the family. She will normally come in the morning , have an 8-hour working day and then leave in the late afternoon/evening.



I don't think it is common these days to have butlers or anything similar to that. Donald Trump for example had a long-term butler before he became president and some other millionaires/billionaires might have one too.

The story stem from Daniel on her wedding day. He brought it up and asked.

I asked her that. Do I bow to you? I dont want to disrespect you, but Ive known for almost ten years. Whats up?' he recalls. She started laughing and she said, Im always going to be Meg. Meg.'

I am just going to leave this here, since not long ago some people were so adamant about the BRF not having sanctioned official memorabilia commemorating the birth of Archie Harrison. This is from KP store

No one said anything about the BRF.

It was the Royal Collection Trust that didn't release any memorabilia as was clearly stated at the time.

I am quite surprised as he has no title and I just don't see him going from this to suddenly being a prince one day. I could be wrong but I just don't see it.

The set KP is selling is nice. They also have a few more items commemorating Archie's birth.

The previous discussion was about The Royal Collection Trust. They announced that they wouldn't be producing any official memorabilia.

I always assumed that the KP gift shop would sell something, although I'm not sure the items have been commissioned by the BRF.

people change status and title in the course of one's life, nothing unusual

The honourable Diana Spencer, Lady Diana Spencer, HRH The Princess of Wales, Diana, Princess of wales

HRH Prince Philip of Greece and Danemark, Lt Philip Mountbatten, HRH Sir Philip Mountbatten, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh

and there are plenty of examples like this

The big difference is that Archie's titles completely depend on his birth (so why give him no title to start with when it is known that one day he will be the duke of Sussex in normal circumstances), while your examples depend on marriage.

.. every firstborn son of nobility starts without a title / just a courtesy title; like Prince Charles, The Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, - and one day .. The King.


So why not call him - and in that veine also Prince William and why not Prince George allready King - because on day they will be?

Charles was HRH Prince Charles of Edinburgh from birth. Likewise William was HRH Prince William of Wales and George was HRH Prince George of Cambridge from birth. They could have used/ use courtesy titles as all 3 had/have a father who was/is also a peer, but they never used one probably because they were already princes in their own right.

I don't understand the point you are trying to make... Archie was born with the courtesy title Earl of Dumbarton, as the eldest son of the Duke of Sussex, from that title the natural progression would be to one day become the duke himself upon which moment his eldest son would be known as earl of Dumbarton. However, his parents don't want him to use it!

So, the whole point is that his parents wish to pretend he is just some guy named Archie, not belonging to his father's family as sons of a duke would be known by their father's secondary title or (if younger sons) as Lords while at some point in his life he is expected to start acknowledging his background by becoming a duke (outt of nowhere). This is a completely different scenario than someone marrying into a family and therefore becoming a duchess while previously being a ordinary person, or the daughter of an earl becoming the princess of Wales. Those things couldn't be foreseen, while Archie's future can.

Indeed, having a (higher) title in your own right would trump the use of a courtesy title.

Almost one month later and I still have not reconciled my self to that name...I just dislike it so intensely. I cannot imagine it as anything other than a casual nickname.

I think it's cute...I grew up around a guy (older) named Archie so not so 'weird' to me.

Indeed. I don't get why people think this is some huge difference, particularly given the circumstances. Archie is also already treated as if he is HRH so it's not like much will change if/when he becomes HRH.

I really disliked it at first but I've warmed to it and much faster than I thought I would. I'm now of the opinion that it's a cute name for a child and as more time passes, I'm sure I won't be able to imagine him with any other name.

I think it's cute as a nickname, or for the family pet.

But as the formal Christian name for the grandson of the future king and the eldest son of a Royal duke?

Just awful imo.

To me, it appears that Archie's parents are making a very deliberate attempt to use a non-traditional name for him, perhaps as an indication of the modern and non-royal way they intend to bring him up.
