Just because Meghan Markle is walking down the royal aisle, doesn’t mean she will be known as Princess Meghan after her big day.

Unfortunately, per royal rules only those born into the royal family can use the title Prince, or Princess before their first names. Officially, Meghan will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales, which uses her husband’s name.

It is assumed the Queen will bestow a vacant Dukedom upon Harry and Meghan following their wedding, just as she did for William and Kate after their big day when they became known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Winning out as the favorite Dukedom to be bestowed on the couple, according to various media outlets, is the Dukedom of Sussex, meaning Meghan will hold the title the Duchess of Sussex. Other contenders are Duke and Duchess of Clarence and Avondale, Duke and Duchess of Connaught and Duke and Duchess of Albany.
