Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s use of their royal titles for their latest venture has sparked discussion among experts. This comes after it was announced that the Duchess of Sussex is set to publish a children’s book about father-son relationships. Royal expert Wesley Kerr joined The Royal Beat – available on True Royalty TV – to speak about the Sussexes’ titles.

He told viewers: “She is using ‘Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex’ on the book.

“It is very interesting to see that in their many appearances, the titles are used.

“When Harry did an appearance this week it was ‘Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex’.

“Maybe because it’s an American market, but it’s good to see.”

Harry was introduced with his dukedom when he appeared at Global Citizen’s ‘VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World’.

Both he and Meghan are serving as campaign chairs of the campaign.

Although they are no longer working royals they are still known as Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

This was confirmed by the Palace after it was announced that they would be dropping their HRHs.

Meghan’s title was briefly put under review by the Palace at the start of 2020.

The one she was given was usually used to “express divorce”.

Sky events commentator Alastair Bruce explained: “The Palace made an announcement about what the Duke and Duchess were to be called.”

He continued: “But it inadvertently gives all the wrong messages because, in convention, the style suggested is the one adopted to express divorce.

“As a result, this will be revisited and I’m sure that the expert, called Garter King of Arms, can provide advice.

“What had been suggested was ‘Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’ but placing the first name and comma before the title is the template for a divorced wife.

“As an example, Harry’s mother was styled after her divorce as ‘Diana, Princess of Wales’ and the same format applies, post-divorce, to ‘Sarah, Duchess of York’.”

Meghan is commonly referred to as Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex.
