Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, 33, confirmed their relationship in November 2016, their relationship has really progressed, with the world eagerly watching to see where their relationship will go.
Currently celebrating her 36th birthday, the royal has whisked his girlfriend off to celebrate and everyone is convinced Prince William’s brother will propose.
It’s reported they’re heading off for an African adventure, the perfect setting for Prince Harry to propose.
However, while we know a lot about the Suits actress, one thing that went unnoticed by many until now is that Meghan isn’t actually her real name.

She was called Rachel by her parents – Meghan is actually her middle name.
Ironically, Meghan shares her birth name with the Suits character that made her famous – Rachel Zane.
But it’s unclear whether anyone still refers to the star as Rachel, or whether her stage name has now permanently stuck.
We imagine Prince Harry isn’t too bothered about the name change, especially as his real name isn’t actually Harry.

However, if there’s a future for the actress and the royal then they may have one main concern.
For the sake of their on going relationship, it’s vital that Meghan gets on with and impresses Queen Elizabeth.
As well as people who had been divorced, traditionally the royals were also unable to marry a ‘commoner’, which could be another issue for the couple.
The Royal Marriages Act of 1772 also prohibited the marriage of royal family members to anyone not of noble blood.

However now, as long as the Queen approves of the individual marrying into the family, the marriage is considered valid.
The most recent example of this was Kate marrying Will, and then later becoming Duchess of Cambridge.
One concern for the couple is thought to be the fact that royals traditionally can not marry divorcées.

Meghan was previously married to film producer Trevor Engelson.
