• Meghan Markle may have been wrong about Archie's royal title in her interview with Oprah Winfrey, her biographer says
  • Markle previously suggested she wanted her son to have a title due the security that came with it
  • Omid Scobie said Markle "was wrong in her interpretation of" the royal rules

Meghan Markle may have misinterpreted the royal protocol surrounding her son Archie's royal title, a royal biographer has said.

Markle made a number of shocking revelations about the royal family during her and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March, including allegations of racism. She suggested that she wanted Archie — who has no royal title unlike his cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis — to be made a prince for the security and protection that was attached to the title, Page Six reported.

"All the grandeur around this stuff is not really important to me," she said during the interview.

Her biographer Omid Scobie, who co-authored "Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family," suggested that the Duchess of Sussex may have been wrong in her interpretation of the royal rules when she said that her son was not given a title after a change in protocol and was being treated differently compared to Prince William and Kate Middleton's children.

"If we are only going by what Meghan said to Oprah and what the palace have said so far about the situation with Archie, perhaps one can assume that Meghan was wrong in her interpretation of it," said Scobie, whose comments are featured in Discovery's new documentary "Harry and Meghan: Recollections May Vary."

"But we also know that there is much more to this story that we don’t know about," he continued.

Royal expert Craig Prescott addressed the same issue in March, saying the lack of a royal title is not related to him having security.

"One [concern is] that is that if Archie had a title, he would get security, but that isn’t quite true," he told Us Weekly.

Prescott noted that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, who both have royal titles, do not enjoy royal protection. The constitution expert added that the princesses "don't do public duties and don't get security as a rule."

He also insisted that Markle was wrong to assume that her son with Prince Harry would be born to a royal title.

"Archie isn’t entitled to be called prince from when he was born. He is too far removed from the line of succession," Prescott added.

According to the rules established in 1917, HRH titles are only granted to the children and grandchildren of the monarch and the eldest grandson of the Prince of Wales. Archie doesn't qualify for it. However, he can be granted a royal title when his grandfather, Prince Charles, takes over the throne.

However, royal biographer Angela Levin, author of "Harry: Conversations with the Prince," predicted that the heir apparent plans to "cut the monarchy down" to save money. She suggested that Prince Charles may want senior royals to be limited to him, his wife Camilla Parker Bowles, eldest son Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children.

Levin further predicted that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, including their son Archie and their upcoming second child, would be cut loose from the royal family once Queen Elizabeth's reign ends.
