I thought it was only his mother who was Catholic? His father lost his place in the succession because he married a catholic.

I think the Earl of St Andrews also converted, as did Lord Nicholas. I'll have a look and see if I can find any documentation. I don't think I'm misremembering, though.

Edited to add:
Here's the page from the royal family's official site:

http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/page389.asp

After the Duke of Kent come the Earl of St Anrews's two daughters and then Lady Helen, so the Earl of St Andrews, Baron Downpatrick, and Lord Nicholas are missing. I thought the Earl had converted to Catholicism as well as marrying a Catholic, but it may just have been Lord Nicholas who converted among the Duke's children.

This list shows the Earl of St Andrews as being excluded because he married a catholic.

Well, he would certainly have been excluded because of that; I just thought that at some point he'd followed suit. Maybe it was because Lord Nicholas and Lord Downpatrick converted that I thought the Earl was in there too.

I wonder if the daughters will convert when they get older. Usually Catholic parents are expected to raise their children Catholic even if they have a non-Catholic spouse, and that seems to have been what happened with the son.

This was the issue with Prince Michael. The Pope refused to allow a church wedding because P Michael couldn't give an undertaking that his children would be raised as catholics. Both of his children remain Anglicans.

George is still Anglican. The children were raised Anglicans, but Edward made the personal choice to convert. Sylvana is not considered a devout Catholic, so the Vatican rule about Catholic kids probably didn't come into play. Most press believe Katharine, his grandmother, was the Catholic influence inspiring him to convert.

Does one lose the right to the dukedom when marrying/becoming a catholic? Or is it limited to losing rights in succesion?

He doesn't lose the right to the Dukedom as a result of becoming Catholic, just to inclusion in the line of succession. If he were HRH, he wouldn't lose that either, just as Prince Michael didn't.

No, but he loses his place in the line of succession automatically. The dukedom will continue to pass down as long as there is a male in his line (or a new remainder is issued for a female). Otherwise, the Dukedom returns to the Crown after the death of the last eligible male descendant of HRH Prince George.

Edward Edmund Maximilian George Windsor, Baron Downpatrick (b. 1988), is the only son of George, Earl of St. Andrews and his wife, Sylvana, Countess of St. Andrews (née Palma Tomaselli). His father is the elder son to HRH Edward, Duke of Kent and his wife Katharine, Duchess of Kent. Lord Downpatrick is heir after his father to the Dukedom of Kent. He converted to Catholicism and therefore, was struck from the British succession, following the examples of his grandmother, the Duchess of Kent, and his uncle Lord Nicholas Windsor. Since his mother is a Roman Catholic, his father was struck from the succession upon marrying her. He has two younger sisters: Lady Marina-Charlotte Windsor, and Lady Amelia Windsor.

He will in time after the death of his grandfather and father be known as His Grace, The Duke of Kent, Earl of St. Andrews, Baron Downpatrick.

He does not lose his right to the duchy title of Kent even though he is now a Catholic.

No, he doesn't, but the Kent dukedom is one of the traditional royal dukedoms, and I'm not sure that it's going to be allowed to carry on in the present bloodline for ever.

Actually, he will be.

The dukedom will not revert back. Just as Alexander Windsor, Earl of Ulster, will one day be His Grace, the Duke of Gloucester.

It carries on till the male line bloodline dies out.

Have any of them made any comments as to why they converted? I have read Diana's late mother Frances converted to Catholicism as well and I am curious to know why.

Dude-ettes, I have not seen a pic of Downpatrick since Diana's funeral. He was like 9 years old or something last I saw him on TV and in pics at the funeral for Diana, Princess of Wales.

He's at Eton now.
He went Catholic like his mom, and is definitely at Eton.
I'd love to see new pics of him.

Is one not permitted to go to Eton if one is Catholic?

No, no. Warren the mod sent me a PM about this... sorry to confuse you. Eton allows all walks of life (Islam, catholic, protestant, Jewish... whatever). All I meant was that Eton is officially a Church of England (meaning Anglican) school. I expected Downpatrick to go to an officially Catholic school, since his religion seems important to him. Why else would he make such a point to be Catholic even though he loses his place in the succession? So I was just surprised he chose Eton, or his parents chose it, but maybe Eton has a program that interests him more than any other academic course. If he is into science, for example, Eton has a spectacular science department. They have amazing facilities for the sciences. I understand they are very well-known especially for their science education.

Going to Eton seems to be a tradition in the family, so his name was probably down for Eton from the time he was born.
