PRINCE WILLIAM, KATE MIDDLETON’S BIRTHDAY POST FOR PRINCE HARRY LEAVE ROYAL FANS DIVIDED

In a new promotional video announcing guest appearances, the Duchess of Sussex, 39, and the Duchess of Sussex, 36, were introduced simply as “Harry and Meghan.”

However, a TIME article about the event lists the duo as the “Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.”

It’s unclear if the couple will opt to introduce themselves without royal titles.

In February, Prince Harry asked people to “just call him Harry” at a Travalyst conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, following the announcement that he and his wife would be “stepping down” as senior members of the royal family.

The couple later revealed on their Sussex Royal website that moving forward they weren’t going to use their “His/Her Royal Highness” titles although they still retain them. They also declared that they wouldn’t use the word “royal” or “Sussex Royal” for any future business endeavors.

Since the couple’s departure as senior members of the royal family, Prince Harry and Markle have settled into life with their son, Archie, 1, in Santa Barbara, Calif.
