Prince Harry has many royal titles.

When he married Meghan Markle in 2018, he became the Duke of Sussex, and he also uses the title Earl of Dumbarton when he visits Scotland.

Now, however, we can add another title to the list: Prince Gary.

The bizarre name-change has nothing to do with Russian tradition, and it hasn't been written into official royal documentation.

In fact, the reason for the title is much more simple than that.

It's all to do with the Russian alphabet.

The letter "H" sounds like the letter "G", meaning the prince's name will be pronounced as Gary instead of Harry to Russian fans.

Or, if we're being technical about things, Harry could actually be known as Garri, which is short form for "Gerasim" — the Russian equivalent to "Harrold."

The name means "respectable" and "honorable."
