Come next spring, Meghan Markle will have a new royal title!
Prince Harry and Meghan announced their engagement on Monday, and it has already emerged from royal experts that her future title -- which according to tradition, the queen won't bestow until the morning of their wedding -- is expected to be Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex.
According to The Telegraph, the couple will most likely be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex once they are married, when Queen Elizabeth is expected to award dukedom to Harry. Kate Middleton memorably became the Duchess of Cambridge when she married Prince William in 2011.
One thing Meghan will not be known as is "Princess" -- the title is reserved for women born into the royal family, like Kate and Will's daughter, Princess Charlotte. If Meghan and Harry do have children together, they will be referred to as princes and princesses.
Kensington Palace released a statement on Monday confirming the exciting engagement, revealing that Harry and Meghan got engaged earlier this month in London. The two will live together in the Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.
The 36-year-old Suits actress glowed as the pair posed for photos, looking gorgeous in a white coat and nude strappy heels. Harry, 33, looked handsome as usual, sporting a blue coat.
