In the eyes of many, the prospect of a normal woman marrying a prince and becoming a princess is the ultimate fairytale.
So of course, American actress Meghan Markle’s newly announced engagement to Prince Harry has been met with much excitement.
Many Americans are delighting over the fact that Markle is set to become a princess – except she’s not.
In best case scenario she’s most likely to be a duchess, much like Kate Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge when she married Prince William.
Once Harry and Meghan tie the knot, she will take his title and name.
This means Markle will become Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales, alongside any other title the Queen chooses to give her.
However it’s likely that Prince Harry will be given a dukedom, so Markle will become a duchess like Catherine.
But now even her Royal title could come in jeopardy because there are so many angry petitioners who insist that she must not get an official title when she marries Prince Harry.
Furious royalists say Markle would bring shame on the royal family as a divorcee who has been outspoken on issues like Trump and Brexit, as well as appearing on TV with little clothing on.
Markle appears to have the backing of the entire royal family and was the first unmarried partner to receive an invite to Sandringham for Christmas this year.
However, some members of the public are not so taken with her. An online petition is circulating as hundreds try to stop Markle getting a title.
The petition states: “We the undersigned believe that Meghan Markle is unsuitable to be a member of the Royal Family and to have an official position in representing this country.
“She has shown her disrespect for the Monarch and Royal Family by pulling faces and sticking her tongue out to the visitors during her first public appearance with the Queen.”
It also claims Markle “showed a lack of respect towards Harry” during a recent visit to Nottingham, but did not explain how. Markle will also not be respected since the ‘Suits’ actress has been seen scantily clad in magazines and on TV.
“No member of the Royal Family should have naked images of them freely available on the internet as she does,” the petition reads.
“Her constant sex simulation makes her a laughing stock and an embarrassment to this country.”
The petition alleges divorcee Markle was unfaithful to past partners and issues a plea to “prevent her from having an official role or title after her marriage to Harry.”
The petition was started by a Louise Pawsey and has amassed more than 350 signatories – with a target of 500.
Prime Minister Theresa May, Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Charles will be sent the petition if reaches its target.
Harry and Meghan are expected to become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but the order must come from the Queen.
Her Majesty gave the Duke of Cambridge, Harry’s brother, his title on his wedding day.
