Queen Elizabeth to whisk Duchess Meghan away on a royal tour

Before the big day, an official statement told guests to send gifts to Kensington Palace rather than bringing them to the ceremony or reception at Windsor Castle.

Meghan and her monarch grandmother-in-law will travel to Cheshire on the royal train - a mode of transportation that only the most senior members of the royal family are allowed to use, according to Daily Mail. Post her marriage to the Duke of Sussex, Meghan will take a retirement from acting.

The rules came under celebrity scrutiny a year ago when Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, himself holding the title Baron of West Stafford since 2011, criticised the lack of change when the title of Baron Braybrooke passed to a distant cousin after his death, bypassing all eight of his daughters. The Succession to the Crown Act 2013 also changed the succession rules, and as a result, Prince Louis, who was born on April 23, did not pass his 3-year-old sister Princess Charlotte in line to the throne.

People reports on the example of Baron Braybrooke whose title and 6,000-acre country estate went to a distant male cousin when he died in 2017, despite the eight daughters he left behind.

Harry and Markle are now believed to be on their honeymoon, though they are expected to attend the Queen's Trooping of the Colour official birthday parade this Saturday.

If they'd had a daughter first she would have been given the title "Lady" with any further children inheriting the "Lord" or "Lady" title.

Meghan has been invited on her first engagement with the Queen relatively quickly, by royal standards. "Simply making the peerage...the equivalent of the royal family would create a great chaos for many families...whose sons have for 30, 40, 50 years made the assumption of inheriting".
