The dukedom can only be inherited by a male heir, so if Meghan and Harry don’t have any sons… the title will die out.
Could that rule change anytime soon? Meghan has mentioned that she and Harry are feminists, which is also detailed in her About page on the royal family website.
“I am proud to be a woman and a feminist,” she is quoted.

Changes have occurred outside of the dukedom rules, thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, where birth order determines who will become the next king or queen of the U.K., regardless of gender.
