When they welcomed Louise in 2003, and later their son James in 2007, they chose not to give them the Princess and Prince titles, of which they were entitled to have.
They wanted Louise and James to have a more normal and private upbringing and to not have the same pressures placed on them that their cousins had.
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, for example, are Louise and James’s first cousins, and despite being quite low down the pecking order they were granted Princess titles at birth at the request of their father, Prince Andrew.
