Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, has “pushed back” against having “unnecessary” royal titles for her children, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, a commentator has claimed. Prince Edward’s wife is said to be taking “a really healthy approach to parenting as a royal”. HeirPod host Omid Scobie and ABC News Foreign Correspondent Maggie Rulli spoke about the Countess’ methods.

Sophie opened up about their future in the monarchy in a June 2020 interview.

The Countess told the Times: “We try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living.

“Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles.

“They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”
