Britain will from today address and honour Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as Duke and Duchess of Sussex respectively.
The two have also made their vows before God and will henceforth take each others hand in marriage for better for worse until death does them apart.
Harry’s titles are His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Meghan is now known as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex. She is the first person to hold that title.
The titles are granted under the British monarchy’s system of “peerage,” which traces back to feudal times.
Originally, the monarch would bestow titles on servants who pledged loyalty in exchange for protection or land, making them a peer of the realm. Today, it is used for relatives of the monarch.
Meghan Markle walked down the aisle in a stunning Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy wedding dress. Her five meter long veil was assembled from silk tulle, featuring flora designed to represent the 53 countries of the Commonwealth.
