Beloved Flower Lover,
We wanted to extend our congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex:
By tradition, male members of the Royal family receive a title from the monarch on their wedding day.
Harry’s titles will be His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Once married, Meghan will be known as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex. She will be the first person to hold that title.
The only previous person to hold the title of Duke of Sussex was an anti-slavery campaigner and supporter of rights for Catholics and Jews, according to the Royal Collection. Prince Augustus Frederick, son of George III and Queen Charlotte, gained the title in 1801.
