Before Harry, the title the Duke of Sussex was last used 175 years ago by Prince Augustus Frederick. He is the eccentric son of King George III who had his two marriages deemed illegal.
Meghan is history’s first Duchess of Sussex.
The Queen bestowed a dukedom and title on Harry and Meghan in May. A statement from Kensington Palace read: “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.”
