Okoye is a member of the Dora Milaje, the female bodyguards assigned to protect T’Challa. We briefly saw one of these guards in Captain America: Civil War (played by Florence Kasumba) tell Sharon Carter to move, or she would be moved. They also served as "wives in training" and could potentially be chosen as the next Wakandan queen. That said, T’Challa obviously hasn’t been with all of these women romantically, and in Okoye’s case, she was just a close ally/friend. She would continue to protect him in his travels around Wakanda and the rest of the world. It’s possible that Lupita Nyong'o is playing a version of the deadly guard, but she’ll be closer in age to T’Challa, and at some point in the movie, they’ll develop a romantic connection.
