What will Meghan Markle's title be?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced their engagement, prompting tons of speculation about the wedding, the dress and the royal couple’s titles.

Although Meghan’s official ranking will be that of a princess, she won’t be allowed to be known as Princess Meghan as she is not a royal by birth.

On the morning of their wedding, Harry and Meghan will be given their new official titles by the Queen.

If Harry chooses to remain as a Prince, Meghan will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales.

If he is made a Duke (which is more likely), Meghan will become a Duchess just like the Duchess of Cambridge.

Royal experts believe that Harry may take on the role of the Duke of Sussex as this is one of the few vacant names left.

“They’re quite limited in the titles that are available. The Duke of Sussex is the front-runner without any doubt,” genealogist Charles Kidd told the Press Association.

“I think the others are highly unlikely. Clarence hasn’t been used for a long time and it’s been sort of tainted by bad luck. Connaught, with its links to the Republic of Ireland, might not be suitable at the moment.”

However, Meghan may not be known as Meghan, Duchess of Sussex as it turns out that’s not even her real name.

The actress uses her middle name as her stage moniker. She was actually born Rachel Markle (although it seems like she’ll still be known as Meghan).

All a bit confusing, really.
