    A woman assumes the titles and styles of her husband. If she marries a peer, she assumes his status:

    * a woman who marries a duke becomes a duchess

    * a woman who marries a marquess becomes a marchioness

    * a woman who marries an earl becomes a countess

    * a woman who marries a viscount becomes a viscountess

    * a woman who marries a baron becomes a baroness

    Her husband is the title holder and the wife assumes his titles and styles but she does not hold the title in her own right. The woman is only a part of the peerage through her marriage; if she were to divorce and remarry, she would then assume her new husband's status.

    A commoner woman who marries a baronet, the inherited knighthood, or a knight, a life honor, also assumes her husband's status.

    A woman who marries a royal assumes his royal status.

    Only by marriage and it's important to remember, that if she divorces, she IS STILL ENTITTLED TO USE IT, until if or when she remarries, contrary to what an ignorant AnonyMOUSE claims.

  • It would seem so as in the Markle case but it's a fiction people know they are common at heart.

    A woman who is a commoner and marries a peer or noble takes his 'style' so the wife of a Duke is a Duchess. BUT a man who marries a peeress doesn't (unless he has a title of his own). Few women are peers in their own right, a recent exception was the Countess of Burma whose husband was already a baron, but did not become an Earl by marriage.

    Depends on who she marries.
