Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they tie the knot, Kensington Palace has confirmed. Harry was also given Scottish and Northern Irish titles, becoming the Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. It was widely expected that the couple would take the titles, as they follow in the footsteps of William and Kate, who became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they married in 2011.
Announcing the titles, the palace said: ‘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.
‘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.’ The last Duke of Sussex was Prince Augustus Frederick way back in 1801
