Just days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a rare public appearance in Jamaica for the wedding of the young royal's best friend, speculation grew over the duo's marriage. While there have been reports about the "Suits" star becoming a princess after marrying Prince Harry, recent reports claim that it is unlikely she will receive the title.

Markle will not be Princess Meghan but is likely to be titled a duchess if Queen Elizabeth II gives the title of duke to Prince Harry. Under the British monarchy, the title “princess” only applies to those born into the title, for example, Princess Charlotte.

When Kate Middleton and Prince William married in 2011, the queen granted the dukedom to the couple on the occasion of their marriage, making them the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. However, in case the second in line to the British throne inherits the title of Prince of Wales, Middleton will become the Princess of Wales at the time.

According to reports, the dukedom expected to be awarded to Prince Harry would be of Sussex, making Markle the Duchess of Sussex.

Markle and Prince Harry started dating in August 2016, and the Kensington Palace confirmed their relationship on Nov. 8. While several engagement rumors surfaced, Prince Harry and Markle require the queen's approval for their marriage before taking their relationship to the next level.

So far, Markle has met Prince William, Middleton and their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Prince Harry also has met with Markle's father Thomas Markle.

Last week, a report by Us Weekly magazine said Prince Harry is likely to propose to Markle by “the end of summer.” The couple is currently living apart from each other as the 35-year-old is filming for her popular show in Toronto.
