Catherine of Aragón, the only truly royal spouse of Henry VIII who was shamelessly treated by him. God bless her memory.

She was the daughter and sister of the Duke of Cleves but I'm not sure I'd describe her as royal ,Catherine of Aragon was as the daughter of a King and Queen.

Yes that is what i wrote. Well not the brother part because that goes without saying since her\his father was a duke.

But i do think Duke is considered royalty.

Not all dukes are royal, in the UK for instance there are a few non-royal dukes.... not sure whether the Duke of Cleve was considered royalty though...

He was the ruler of a duchy, so yes he was royal.

They are not royal, the 26 Dukes but part of the peerage. There are also royal dukes, because usually when a Monarch's son reached maturity or married he was given a royal dukedom as a mark of status as William was.
