Following the royal wedding, there were a few questions on everyone’s minds. What would Meghan Markle‘s style evolution look like? Where would the happy couple honeymoon? And, most importantly, what would their royal titles be?
While in England, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and Prince William and Kate Middleton are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Once abroad, however, the titles of these royal couples curiously changes.
In a tweet last week, Kensington Palace brought this new information to everybody’s attention, writing that during his trips to Scotland Prince William is known as “The Earl of Strathearn”.
The Duke of Cambridge is attending engagements in Scotland today.

Similarly, Kate Middleton is known as The Countess of Strathearn in Scotland. However, when the couple visits Ireland, they are affectionately known as Baron and Baroness Carrickfergus – which really just rolls off the tongue.
