What will Meghan Markle’s royal title be after she marries Prince Harry?

And why aren't the public happy about it?

The royal wedding is fast approaching, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to wed on 19th May at St. George’s Chapel, in Windsor Castle.

With just a month to go until the big day, there’s plenty of wedding prep for the royal family to busy themselves with – everything from finding the perfect Philip Treacy-style fascinator and buying the newlyweds a fitting wedding present to creating a coat of arms for Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father – a traditional royal gift to the father of the bride.

Something that needs particular thought ahead of the big day however is the Queen’s gifts to the royal couple, with the monarch set to give Prince Harry not one but two royal titles as a wedding gift – expected to also bestow a royal title on his bride, Meghan.

But what will Meghan’s royal title be?

Meghan’s post-wedding title has reportedly been decided upon already, but to the dismay of the public it looks like despite technically being a princess of the UK, she won’t be given an actual princess title, most likely being given a Duchess title instead.

There are reports that Prince Harry is likely to be made the Duke of Sussex on his wedding day, in which case Meghan would be made the Duchess of Sussex – much like Kate and Wills’ titles, known officially as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal titles be?

There is a lot of speculation surrounding potential royal titles for Harry and Meghan but the top choices seem to be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Duke and Duchess of Clarence and Avondale, the Duke and Duchess of Connaught or the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

It looks like we’ll have to wait till May 19th to find out!
