Could Meghan Markle Ever Actually Become Queen

Like a plot line out of Hallmark or the movies An American becoming Queen is like a plot line out of Hallmark or the movies – but is it possible?

The idea of Meghan Markle inheriting the role of Queen of the British monarchy is what Hollywood movies are made of. But is it actually feasible that the Duchess of Sussex, Britain’s queen of fashion, could ever call the throne her own?

As fairytale-esque as the idea sounds, while she can never a Queen like Elizabeth II, he can, become a Queen Consort like Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Succession to the British throne is regulated by descent, which is why Prince Charles, the Queen’s son, is next in line, followed by her grandson Prince William. But those who marry into the royal family don’t get a place in the line of succession, which is why Kate Middleton will never be the Queen of England, even when her husband Williams takes the throne. Instead, she will receive the title of Queen Consort. If earning the title of Queen was a competition, Queen Consort would be runner-up.

But for Harry, who has a longer wait to be King (he’s sixth in line to the throne, behind Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis ), it’s unlikely he’ll ever see the throne, which means his wife will likely never become Queen Consort.
