What royal title Meghan Markle will have has been a topic of debate ever since Prince Harry confirmed their engagement in November last year.
Will she be Princess Meghan? What about Duchess Meghan like Kate Middleton? How about Lady Meghan?
One thing’s for sure: when Meghan – whose full name is Rachel Meghan Markle – marries Prince Harry, she will no longer simply be known as ‘Meghan Markle’.
While the royal Family are yet to confirm whether Harry will become a Duke upon marriage, historians have speculated what her name will change to when she marries Prince Harry on 19 May this year.
If Harry retains his current rank – His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales – it’s believed Meghan will take on the feminine version of his title, becoming known as Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales.
But if Harry becomes a Duke upon marriage, as he is widely expected to, Meghan will therefore become a Duchess, just like Kate Middleton became Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge upon marriage to Prince William, Duke Of Cambridge.
