While the couple will no longer use their HRH status, Harry and Meghan will still be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. HELLO! understands that the way the Sussexes will be addressed is still to be confirmed.

It was previously revealed that they will be individually styled as Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, but according to reports, this is said to be incorrect. The problem relates to the comma because in the past, only divorced royal women have been styled this way – for example, Diana, Princess of Wales and Sarah, Duchess of York. Confirmation from Buckingham Palace on how Harry and Meghan will be addressed in future is expected in the coming days.
