When the engagement of Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle was made public, the world rejoiced in the fact that a prince was marrying a commoner.
Meghan Markle, who met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a friend, gave hope to women all over the world that someday your prince will come and sweep you off your feet, bring you to his castle, and you get to live the rest of your life as a princess.
However, even though Meghan Markle gets to live the fairytale life, she won’t be able to call herself Princess Meghan due to certain British royal protocol. Instead, she will most probably be called Her Royal Highness Princess Harry of Wales.
This is because Meghan Markle is not of royal blood – and therefore will have to take her future husband’s name and title – very much like Kate Middleton did. When Kate Middleton tied the knot with Prince William back in 2011, she immediately assumed the title Her Royal Highness, Princess William of Wales.
Well, whatever the name is, she is about to marry a handsome prince so we’re still super jealous!
