The world can’t get enough of royal wedding chat. And Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seemingly can’t either as they slowly release more and more information about their big day next May.
But one thing that people still can’t get over are the couple’s real names.
Yes, Harry and Meghan are not actually called Harry and Meghan.
Their legal names are Henry and Rachel.
Confused? We don’t blame you.
Prince Henry of Wales is Harry’s official title. The royal has been using the name Harry as his nickname since he was a child.
His full official title is something of a mouthful: Henry Charles Albert David Mountbatten-Windsor.
Meanwhile Markle’s birth name is Rachel; coincidentally the same name as her ‘Suits’ character.
Meghan is her middle name but has always been the name she chooses to go by personally and professionally.

In the official engagement announcement from Clarence House, the former actress was referred to as Meghan, leading many to believe that she may have legally changed her name.
Although it seems the couple will still be known as Harry and Meghan, not Henry and Rachel, Twitter has erupted with fans unable to get their heads around the name confusion.
