In the months leading up to the royal wedding, the official royal titles of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been highly speculated.
Queen Elizabeth II gave Kate Middleton and Prince William the dukedom of Cambridge on their wedding day, so most people assumed she would do the same for Markle and Prince Harry.
Royal insiders speculated that Prince Harry would be given the dukedom of Sussex, but it was not the only choice available as a gift for the newlyweds.
The other choices for titles were the Duke and Duchess of Clarence and Avondale, the Duke and Duchess of Connaught, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Since the last Duke of Windsor renounced the throne to marry his divorced American wife, Windsor seemed unlikely.
Although Markle has married a prince, which makes her technically a princess, she won’t be given the official princess title.
Before Prince Harry and Markle exchanged their vows Saturday morning, Queen Elizabeth announced their official royal titles to the family gathered to watch the two say “I do.”
