Why was Meghan’s real name left off the official wedding invitation?
British etiquette expert Grant Harrold told Good Housekeeping: “Buckingham Palace does things by the book, so they will list your full name.
“Even though it’s an official occasion, they’ve obviously decided that she’s known to as everybody as Meghan Markle and issued the invitations under that name.”
Members of the public may not realise that Meghan is not her real name and that it is actually Rachel, the name she shared with her TV show Suits character.

Does Meghan have a new name after being baptised? If so, what is it?
Royal expert Kelly Lynch and managing editor of Dailybreak revealed all to Express.co.uk.
She said: “Since people know her now as ‘Meghan’, I would be shocked if she chose to go by her given name (Rachel).”
Meghan will be following in a precedent actually set by Prince Harry, who does not use his Christian name either.
