Companies House briefly gave the Duchess of Sussex the title after she and husband Prince Harrysubmitted paperwork to dissolve their Sussex Royal foundation.

The Sun reports the 38-year-old former Hollywood actress was described as HRH and then Dr The Duchess of Sussex, before both titles were dropped completely on Wednesday.

Meghan is no longer allowed to use HRH in relation to securing work as part of the deal which allowed the Sussexes to step down as senior royals in March.

She has a bachelor’s degree from Chicago's Northwestern University, where she majored in theatre and international studies - but no doctorate or medical qualifications.

A royal insider told The Sun: "The duchess is definitely not a doctor."

A spokesman for Companies House told the newspaper: "We are currently looking into this matter."

The couple say they want to concentrate on new ventures going forward after dissolving their foundation - focusing on eco tourism project Travalyst, which launched last year and non-profit organisation Archewell.

It comes as Harry and older brother Prince William have agreed to divide the future proceeds of their tragic mum's memorial fund as part of an agreement to separate their charitable activities.

According to reports, an agreement was signed in December last year between the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the now abandoned Sussex Royal Foundation.

It was agreed just under a month before Harry and Meghan announced they intended to move to North America and become financially independent.

In April 2013, the Royal Foundation charity assumed legal control of The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund to safeguard any future income upon the ending of its operations.

Also this week bombshell court papers revealed that in her brief spell as a senior royal Meghan felt "unprotected by the Institution, and prohibited from defending herself."
