Meghan Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, are one of the most exciting royal love stories of modern times.

A prince marrying a Hollywood star is a very romantic idea. Since Grace Kelly and Rainier III, has there been a more picturesque royal couple?

When Prince Harry and Meghan tie the knot it is expected that she will have a royal title.

However, the title she has depends solely on Prince Harry’s. It was thought Prince Harry would become a duke on marrying, but now a royal expert has claimed there is another option.

Grant Harrold, known as The Royal Butler, has worked in the role for HRH Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, so knows a thing or two about royal business.

He told Express.co.uk exclusively that Prince Harry might be up for another title instead.

Grant said: “We won’t know her know her long as Princess Henry because she might be Duchess or a Countess.

“So after people have met her at the wedding they’ll have to be aware of that.”

Duchess or countess – what is the difference?

Duchess is the feminine version of a duke, and is the highest rank among British peers. Countess is the feminine version of an earl. Earls have a lower rank than dukes.

After this comes viscount and baron. But why would Prince Harry be an earl instead of a duke?

Grant said: “It’s a personal thing for the royal family to decide.

“Charles is a duke and Prince Andrew is a duke but the youngest was given the Earl of Wessex.

“Because Harry’s the youngest one they could go for an earldom.”

However, Grant believes the title is most likely to be Duke and Duchess of some sort.

He said: “I think possibly a Duchess, because of the fact that Prince Harry is quite close in line to the throne.

“The bookies are looking at dukes and duchesses, and I’m inclined to think it is a dukedom.”

Grant recently appeared on new BBC Three comedy series Miss Holland, to teach the beauty queen all there is to know about etiquette.

He taught the royal enthusiast how to to make the prefect cup to tea.

Putting tea in first, it is revealed, has been the proper way of brewing the beverage since the 18th century, when English potter Josiah Spode decided china tea cups should be made using animal bone to ensure they didn’t crack under intense heat.

Will Meghan Markle be a higher ranking royal that Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two?

This is because they are not peers of the realm. Royal expert Marlene Koenig told Town & Country: “It sounds complicated, but in the UK, the only people who are not commoners are the Sovereign and peers of the realm, [people with titles like] Duke, Marquess, Earl, Viscount, and Baron.”
