It turns out Meghan's real name is actually Rachel - the same name as her iconic Suits character - while Harry's real name is Henry.

Harry is listed as, 'His Royal Highness Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex.'

And Meghan is listed as, 'Rachel Meghan Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.'

Meanwhile, the Elephant actresses job description reads, 'Princess of the United Kingdom.'

However, the official title given to her by the Queen on her wedding day is, 'Duchess.'

So understandably many fans are confused as to why she used, 'Princess,' instead.

The title however, isn't incorrect - Meghan is technically a princess.

Through marrying Harry, she also took on the title of, 'Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales.'

Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, also listed, 'Princess,' as her job description on her children's birth certificates.
