They are just not working royals – or as some would put it, ‘senior royals’ – since leaving ‘The Firm’ in 2020.
But they are still technically royalty. Harry remains a prince, and as The Queen’s grandson, he remains sixth in line to the British throne.
Prior to their departure, the couple’s occupations were listed on son Archie’s birth certificate as Prince and Princess of the United Kingdom.
Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle still the Duke and Duchess of Sussex?
Yes, they are also still a Duke and Duchess.
Today, Harry and Meghan’s titles are Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex.
The Dukedom was gifted to the couple by The Queen when they married in 2018.
Harry and Meghan are also still entitled to the style of His and Her Royal Highness – despite no longer using it.
Without the Dukedom, Harry and Meghan would be known as Prince and Princess Henry of Wales.
