With the news that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will tie the knot in May of 2018, we thought it might be a good idea to refresh everyone on royal wedding traditions, and our thoughts on how the newly-engaged couple might follow (or not follow!) these customs. Meghan’s engagement ring was the perfect mix of traditional and modern, and we have the strong feeling their wedding details will follow suit. These are the traditions the couple will probably keep in mind when planning their big day.
When the couple weds, it is believed that Prince Harry will take on the title of Duke of Sussex, and therefore Meghan will become the Duchess of Sussex (much like how Prince William and Kate Middleton are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge). The title of “princess” is only reserved for those who were born into the Royal family (such as Princess Charlotte).
