That's a lot of names to remember.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be married on the 19th May and we're literally counting down the days (109 as of the beginning of this week, guys).

Meghan has chosen her wedding dress, the venue will be St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, and the couple are set to receive new formal titles, the general consensus being that they will become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

But news has reached us that those aren't the only potential new titles for the royal couple, as it looks like Harry and Meghan will receive not one but TWO new titles from the Queen on their wedding day.

When Prince William and Kate Middleton were married – can you believe that was almost seven years ago? – they received the formal titles Duke and Duchess of Cambridge respectively.

But they're also known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn, Scotland, as it's customary for the Queen to give newly married couples a Scottish title.

'The Scottish title Prince Harry receives is likely to be an earldom, but there are very few clues here,' Wendy Bosberry-Scott, co-editor at Peerage and Baronetage, told the Press and Journal.

'One potential candidate is Ross, but this was last held by Charles I – who was executed in 1649 – so it may well be considered unlucky.

'Dumbarton is another possibility but, at this point, it is merely speculation and many factors will have to be considered before a suitable title is chosen.'

Whatever the new titles may be, we won't find out until Prince Harry and Meghan's big day in a few month's time. Roll on May the 19th.
