Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess and Prince Harry blasted for ‘unroyal’ obsession with privacy over Archie’s birth

NOD TO MEGHAN’S DIVORCE ON ROYAL WEDDING INVITES

Cast your mind back to 2018 and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had just announced their engagement.

And when it came to sending out their invites, there was a subtle acknowledgment that this was Meghan’s time down the aisle.

The former American actress was called “Ms” Markle on the coveted invites, which contrasts to Kate Middleton having “Miss” on her 2011 invites.

The reason for this is that etiquette rules state the correct way to refer to someone who is divorced is “Ms”.

Etiquette expert William Hanson told the Sun Online: “The Royal Household, in particular The Queen, has never before acknowledged the honourific Ms, regardless of whether it was being used to signify a divorced woman or one who did not feel her marital status was of importance.

“It was first used in connection to Meghan in the November engagement announcement and since then has been used throughout the royal household’s communications, on press releases, invitations and social media.

“I would imagine Meghan herself has asked to be styled accordingly and that there is no slight intended on Prince Harry’s finance.  It is another subtle sign that the royal household is moving with the times.”
