Royal blood, Prince Harry and his seven month old girlfriend Meghan Markle are rumored to be moving in together, with all signs pointing towards a future engagement for the happy couple. But would Meghan become a princess if she marries Harry?
Although they are said to be ready to take the next step, it is said that Harry is in “no rush” to propose.
“They’ve been dating for just over seven months now,” a source said.
“Give it until the relationship has been going for a year and then I think we’ll have a clearer idea.”
But if the couple do eventually marry, what will Meghan’s title be?
What will Meghan Markle’s title be if she marries Prince Harry?
Although the Suits actress could become a princess by marriage, she would not be entitled to be styled as Princess Meghan. To have princess as a title before your first name is an honor reserved for women who are born into the Royal Family.
So while Princess Charlotte is a princess because of her father’s royal status, Princess Diana was actually Diana, Princess of Wales. If Meghan were to marry Harry, she would take the feminine version of his title and be known as HRH Princess Henry of Wales.
If Harry is made a Duke after his marriage, just like his brother, Prince William was, Meghan would become a Duchess. Royal historian Marlene Koenig believes that Prince Harry will likely be created the Duke of Sussex by the Queen on his wedding day.
In the same manner the Duchess of Cambridge is not Princess Catherine, but is entitled to use the feminine version of her husband’s title: HRH Princess William of Wales.
