What Will Meghan Markle's Royal Title Be?

This Will Be Meghan Markle's Royal Title Now That She's Married to Prince Harry

It's one of the biggest events of the year: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding! The couple tied the knot at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, and not only has Meghan officially become a royal, but she has also acquired a new title.

On the day of the wedding, Queen Elizabeth II officially announced that the former Suits actress is now the Duchess of Sussex!

"The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales," the statement read. "His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms. Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex."

Queen Elizabeth II decided to change Harry's title from His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales to the Duke of Sussex (similar to what she did for Prince William when he married Kate Middleton in 2011). They both have a nice ring to it — don't you think?
