The Hebrew word used is melek; the Greek word is basileus.
The royalty of His deity, by virtue of the fact that He is eternal and infinite God.
GEN 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
COL 1:16 “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created by Him and for Him.”
The royalty of His humanity, by virtue of the virgin birth, Incarnation and First Advent.
The royalty of His Hypostatic Union, by virtue of His strategic victory at the cross.
1TI 3:16 “And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, Was vindicated in the Spirit, Beheld by angels, Proclaimed among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory.”
Point 2. The Divine Royalty of Christ.
Point 3. The Jewish Royalty of Christ, the Royalty of His Humanity.

2SA 5:14 “Now these are the names of those who were born to him in Jerusalem: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon,”
Mary is descendant from their son Nathan. Joseph is descendant from their son Solomon, Joseph being Jesus legal but not real father.
