Meghan Markle Will Become The Duchess Of Sussex When She Marries Prince Harry, Who Has Been Made The Duke Of Sussex By The Queen, Buckingham Palace Has Announced

Crowds have begun lining the streets of Windsor, ahead of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are to be married today at a midday service in Windsor Castle.

More than 100,000 people will descend on Windsor for the wedding – and with good weather expected – numbers could be even higher.

The Prince, who is the sixth in line to the throne, and Ms Markle, a former American actress, announced their engagement in November last year.

Meghan will emerge from the hour long televised ceremony as an HRH, a member of the British royal family – and as the Duchess of Sussex.

The Queen gave Harry the title of the Duke of Sussex on the morning of the wedding, Buckingham Palace announced.
The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales.
His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.

Prince Harry spent his final evening as a single man at Cowarth Park – about 15 minutes from Windsor.

Earlier on Friday, he and the Duke of Cambridge met members of the public outside Windsor Castle.
