When a person marries another, it’s not just a man and a woman agreeing to share their lives with each other, but they also are going to be a part of each other’s family. The married couple will have new responsibilities and new challenges in addition to having new relationships with people around them. A married woman becomes a daughter n law and a sister in law, while the married man becomes son-in-law and brother-in-law.
However, when you are marrying into the royal family and have a royal wedding, your responsibilities and your challenges wouldn’t be the same as any other ordinary married couple. Similarly, your relationships and your titles won’t be similar to any commoner. This is the case with Ms. Meghan Markle, or as of now the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex.
Just like his brother and sister in law, Prince William the Duke of Cambridge and Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and his wife Princess Meghan Markle also have an official title now. The fancy title to any male member of the British Royal family is always rewarded on the day of their wedding day, ahead of their royal wedding by the British monarch. Since Queen Elizabeth is the current reigning monarch of Great Britain, it is her job to grant this title to her grandson Prince Harry. This title will, of course, be shared by Princess Meghan Markle as well.
So far the title of the Duke of Sussex had been vacant and was always thought as the best choice for Prince Harry, and as his wife, Duchess of Sussex for Meghan. In addition to the main title, which is the Duke of Sussex, Harry will also be known as Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. A person who has rewarded the title of a “Duke” is regarded as the highest in the ranking of nobles in the British Monarchy. The titles refer to the historic county on the Southeast English coast which has a population of 1.6 million.
Considering how popular Prince Harry and Princess Meghan are among the people, their new titles would surely lead them to live forever in the hearts of the people of Sussex and have an everlasting, happy royal marriage.
