Though Meghan is married to a prince, she won’t be given an official princess title. Harry and Meghan will instead be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The Queen announced the news early Saturday morning, before the family gathered to watch Harry and Meghan exchange vows. Harry was also given the titles of Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel, which will be used in Scotland and Northern Ireland, respectively.
“The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales. His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel,” the palace said in a statement. “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.”
In the months before their wedding, Sussex was widely speculated to be the dukedom that the Queen would choose for her grandson and his new bride. Sussex was also one of only two dukedoms available for Harry. (The other was the Duke of Clarence.)

It’s been a trying time for the Revenge Body host. On April 10 — two days before the stars welcomed their daughter — photos and videos surfaced of the basketball player allegedly getting close to an unidentified woman at an N.Y.C. lounge. TMZ also posted footage recorded in October 2017 allegedly depicting Thompson kissing one woman while a different woman groped him at the Darna hookah lounge outside of Washington D.C.
On Thursday, Kardashian shared a sweet message about her “incredibly strong and resilient” family.
“The KarJen women are all so incredibly strong and resilient. We all learn and support each other fully, and have such a love and desire to remain close,” she wrote on her website/app.
“This is how I know our family bond will never be broken. I’m so proud to be part of our family!” she added.
