Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, were married in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to ride a ferry across Sydney Harbour past the Opera House on Tuesday, as well as watch an indigenous contemporary dance troupe and see koalas at the Taronga Zoo.

However, it is thought Meghan has taken advice about the tour and made a decision to continue to both Fiji and Tonga, although she is expected to skip a couple of outings in Fiji. But now, everyone wants to know whether their future children will be handed similar titles by the Queen.

For example, as the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George uses Prince William and Kate Middleton's dukedom, Cambridge, as his last name at school.
