In the ever-evolv­ing land­scape of the British roy­al fam­i­ly, a sur­pris­ing rev­e­la­tion has emerged regard­ing Meghan Markle’s poten­tial title change. Accord­ing to a roy­al expert, if the Duchess of Sus­sex were to lose her cur­rent title, she would be referred to as “Princess Hen­ry” rather than the Duchess of Sussex.

Ingrid Seward, the edi­tor-in-chief of Majesty Mag­a­zine, shared this insight in an inter­view with The Roy­al Beat. Seward explained that even though it’s unlike­ly for Meghan, 42, and Prince Har­ry, 39, to be stripped of their roy­al titles by King Charles III, the tech­ni­cal­i­ties of roy­al tra­di­tion would dic­tate such a change.

“If they lose their titles, Har­ry is still a prince of the blood and Meghan instead of being the Duchess of Sus­sex, [would] be Princess Hen­ry,” Seward said, accord­ing to The Mir­ror. She acknowl­edged that this would like­ly “con­fuse the Amer­i­cans,” but not­ed that it might be the best course of action to “leave it because it looks unkind, it looks unnecessary.”

This poten­tial title shift high­lights the com­plex dynam­ics with­in the British roy­al fam­i­ly, as the Duke and Duchess of Sus­sex nav­i­gate their rela­tion­ship with the crown after step­ping down as senior work­ing mem­bers in 2020.

While King Charles III and Prince William have report­ed­ly dis­cussed the pos­si­bil­i­ty of strip­ping the cou­ple of their roy­al titles, they are “ter­ri­fied this would back­fire and make the sit­u­a­tion worse,” accord­ing to roy­al author Tom Quinn.

Seward’s insight sug­gests that even if Meghan were to lose her Duchess title, she would still be grant­ed a roy­al des­ig­na­tion, albeit one that may con­fuse the pub­lic. This speaks to the intri­cate pro­to­cols and tra­di­tions that con­tin­ue to shape the roy­al fam­i­ly’s approach to man­ag­ing the Sus­sex­es’ status.

As the roy­al saga con­tin­ues to unfold, the prospect of Meghan Markle becom­ing “Princess Hen­ry” serves as a poignant reminder of the unique chal­lenges and com­plex­i­ties faced by the mem­bers of the British monar­chy in the mod­ern era.
