Queen Elizabeth II Is Planning to Give Prince Harry & Meghan Markle *This* Traditional Wedding Gift

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 19 royal wedding is just around the corner (squee!), but they aren’t expecting a Kitchen Aid mixer or china from Harry’s dear Gan-Gan Queen Elizabeth II. No, the queen has something else planned.

In accordance with royal tradition, Queen Eliz will bestow Prince Harry and his beloved with two new titles on their wedding day: one English and one to use while in Scotland.

Prince William and Kate Middleton became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge after walking down the aisle and also received the Scottish titles Earl and Countess of Strathearn. According to Harpers Bazaar UK, Harry and his lady love will be dubbed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and will also snag the Scottish title Earl and Countess of Ross because this title has historically been given to second royal sons. We all know the royal family loves tradition.  

Harry and MM’s official titles won’t be announced until their wedding day, so all that’s left to do is wait and keep our fingers crossed that we land a phone interview for their assistant position. Ahem, not to brag, but we can type 65 words per minute.
