Prince Harry Interrupts Honeymoon for Announcement

This means that even if the couple's first-born child is a girl, only their sons will inherit the dukedom.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend the Wheelchair Tennis on day 3 of the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 at Nathan Philips Square on September 25, 2017 in Toronto, Canada.

Meghan Markle has been asked by Her Majesty to accompany her on three engagements next week.

Now that she's had some time reflect on her daughter's special day, Ragland reportedly has picked out her favorite moment.

Harry, now also known as the Duke of Sussex, made the announcement Monday in a statement from the foundation supporting the sporting event for injured veterans.

While the royal laws of succession were changed to become gender-neutral in 2013, but priority within the peerage system still favours male heirs.

Had this rule not been implemented, Princess Charlotte would have lost her spot in line for the throne to her baby brother, Prince Louis. Luckily, she'll have Queen Elizabeth II to show her the ropes.

They were first photographed on Christmas Day a year ago alongside other senior members of the family at their Sandringham home, followed by Meghan's appearance at the Commonwealth Day service back in April.

But the rules of peerage, which refer to the legal system concerning both hereditary and lifetime titles in the United Kingdom, have not changed, meaning male heirs inherit the title rather than daughters.
