No.. she would not have had a title either way. If Mark Phillips had been made a peer, Zara would have been known as "Lady Zara" by courtesy. Females do not inherit titles in Britain unless the letters patent specifically allow for inheritance by a female.

I don't see how being Miss Zara Phillips as opposed to "Lady Zara" has affected her one way or the other. She is not entitled to HRH, so whether her father was a peer would not matter for her. She could not have passed on a courtesy title to her children anyway. Of course, she could marry a peer and that would change things..

Besides, if she really wanted a title, I'm sure her grandmother would have no problem creating her a life peer..

Well, I didn't even think of the Plague. I should have! No, I don't take this as disrespect -- just more accurate history!

I'm afraid, HM Queen Catherine, being a Miss is quite different from being Lady in how your are treated and how you are perceived in the UK generally. Of course, when everyone knows that your mother is the Princess Royal, you will be treated with the same respect (or even more) than if you were an 'ordinary' Lady!!

I am pretty sure that you are only royal if you are entitled to be addressed as Your Royal Highness. It may be a courtesy only, but it indicates the rank the person has. So Princess Margaret's children are not royal, and neither are Princess Anne's. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenies's children will not be royal. Even in the male line, the royal title stops beyond the Monarch's grandchildren. Prince Michael of Kent is royal (so his wife is too) as he is the grandson of George V, but his children are only Lord and Lady. If Prince Andrew had a son, he would be royal, but his children would not be, and neither will Prince Edward's son. Prince Harry is different, as he is likely to become the son of a Monarch, so his children will be royal (although they may not be, if he has children before Charles becomes Kind.

All the Royals and their families

Hi, my name is Netitia and I am from Germany and I hope you can understand my english without a lot of laughter.

Well, I have to write a huge and very statistical work about the royal family(not only). Its to hard for me to describe it in more detail. Its an mathematical work about Probabilitys, Frequencies and so on.
There are a lot things I have to count or compare. There are questions like: "Have the royal family more male or female members." or "In wich month/year are the most members of the royal family born." (church/chapel... of most marriages (the dates of them), number of divorce (with dates...), birthplaces, most used (first) names......)
I have also to include parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, half-sisters and brothers, illegitimate childs and stepbrothers and sisters and so on (I have to get every information I can). Even if they do not belong to the royal family and never have a right to the throne.

I have to expand it about the relationships, starting by the youngest member. (I think this is Savannah Phillips at the moment). I have to look for Connections to other royal familys.

At first I try to collect informations and I hope you will help my with some questions.

1. Savannah Phillips /29.12.2010 - Is this her full name? And where is she born?
2. Is London Paddington only a District ore is it the name of a hospital too? Because Peter Phillips is born there.
3. Where I can find some informations about the parents (do they have sisters, brothers...) of Autumn Kelly. I need the birthdates, the full names, if they have - childs together - the new partners - the full name and birthdates of the childs.
I only know the names. Autumns twinbrother Christopher, her older brother Kevin (the same father?) and Patrick an Jessica Kelly.

So I hope to find somebody who is glad to help me...
Thanks alot

(There are much more questions, but I think this is enough for the start and maybe I'll find some answers of the open questions alone.)

Bye, Nettie

1; That is presumably her official name, it has not been confirmed but it has not been denied either. She was born at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
2; Peter Phillips was born at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington.
3; Such private information about Autumns family is not likely to be known to the public because, a. it's private and b. Autumn isn't a prominant member of the BRF.
Kevin is her step-brother - they share the same father. Her parents are Brian and Kathleen (Kitty).

If they share the same father, isn't Kevin her half-brother?

Half brothers/sisters share a parent.

Step brothers/sisters do not share a parent.

e.g. William and Harry are step brothers to Tom and Laura but there are definitely not half brothers.

There is a very clear difference between the terms.

My Prof would say: If she is a part of the family she is important. How prominent she is doesn't matter. (She is the wife of the first grandchild of the Queen and so she is important, her parents and the other members of her family too - at least for my Prof)
And he also said: If I can find some needed information about a person you can find it too. And if not - you get fewer points. Its easy mathematic. As you can imagine - I really like him.

But thank you for the informations. Do you know the name of Kevins mother?
By the way... Is royal family written royal family or Royal Family in english? How I do right?

To my work (can I use these or is work okay) - I am very happy with my topic because my fellow has to investigate books and compare them. The most used first word. The most used colour of the Cover. The autor who has the most best-selled books and so on... I think my theme is much more interesting. I do not know a lot about the Royals - but this will change during the next months.

Your prof needs to understand where she is placed in line to the throne, Peter is barely known in the UK.

Like I said, this information isn't going to be known to anyone unless they are close to the Kelly's themselves.

Your prof needs to learn that when a commoner marries into the royal family it is the person who does so and not their family. Autumn, being married to the 11th in line to the throne is not an important member of the family in the real world (even these days everyone from Andrew down in the line is regarded as 'minor' royals and Andrew serves as a Counsellor of State - i.e. he signs papers in leui of the Queen when she is overseas (with another Counsellor - Charles, William or Harry) but even so he is a 'minor' royal.

Finding personal information about Autumn will be difficult because her family are private individuals and are entitled to their privacy in the same way as you and I.

I don't believe Kevin is her step-brother OR her half-brother. His is her older brother. Full stop.

His parents are Brian and Kathleen, same as the parents of twins Autumn and Chris.

Kathleen is now remarried to Ron Magas, without children, and Brian Kelly has not remarried as far as I know.

Not from what I have read, they share the same father making Kevin, Autumn's half-brothers.

According to this article Princess Anne's future daughter-in-law had 'down-to-earth' upbringing | Mail Online, Brian and Kitty Kelly are the parents of Autumn, Chris and Kevin.

Nettie, if you Google Autumn's name (and those of her family members) you might just come up with enough bits and pieces to put together into something resembling a whole!

As to whether to have capital letters for royal family or not - it is general practice in written British English to use capitals if you are referring to a specific one, but not if it is just general. In other words, if I say 'I am interested in the British Royal Family', it has capitals. However, if I say 'I am interested in royal families within Europe', it wouldn't!

On Savannah Phillips' name - we don't really know this officially. Peter and Autumn are members of the extended Royal Family, but they are also untitled private citizens. It was obviously decided that the name didn't get an official royal announcement, but they knew people were keen to know the name. The compromise was for the minister officiating at a Royal church service, to include the baby's name in the prayer for the well-being of members of the Royal Family. This is how we know it is Savannah - but it doesn't tell us if there are any middle names. This may come out when she is baptized.

This is interesting - I have not been aware of a difference between being a 'member of the royal family' and a royal relative'. A relative is a relative, I would guess, blood is blood - so how is that different from being a 'member of the royal family'? How is that decided? Why wouldn't a granddaughter of the Queen (like Zara) be a family member and Beatrice and Eugenie are? This is a puzzle. Now come to think of it, wasn't it commented that Sarah is a member of the royal family? Or was that Diana? After the divorce? So its a big deal one way or the other?

It is derived from a person's patrilineal or matrilineal line of descent. Beatrice and Eugenie, like also the Waleses, young Wessexes, Gloucesters and Kents, are male-line grandchildren of a Sovereign (Elizabeth II and George V) and that's why they are Princes and Princesses of the United Kingdom by birth, with the style Royal Highness. Because of that they are the top members of the family, its "official" part. Official by this status, which is derived from their line of descent from a monarch. Additonally, the eldest son of the eldest son of the eldest son of the monarch is also included, as a Prince and HRH by birth. The Phillipses, like the Lascellesses were, are descended from a Sovereign in a female-line, so they are not inheriting royal status, titles and style from their mother. It can be inherited only through a father, or granted by monarch personally, like it was with the daughters of Louise, Princess Royal and Duchess of Fife, the eldest daughter of Edward VII.

Edward VII granted his granddaughters titles of Princesses with the style Highness when he created Louise the Princess Royal, and they were since then included in the official Royal Family. But, their status of Princesses of Blood by birth was not totally recgonsied by their uncle, George V, and there were some serious tensions between the Duchess of Fife, her brother and their mother, who tried to mediate in that situation. End of he offtop ;-). Not only female-line grandchidren and further descendants are not "full" members of the Royal Family, but also male-line descendants from the third generation and further are not entitled to Royal status. So, the children of Gloucesters and Kents, like Earl of Ulster, who is the second senior agnatic descendant of the entire House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, a male-line and the senior agnatic one great-grandson of George V, is a commoner and not a member of the Royal Family in the said "official" meaning.

But, of course, it is natural to think of the Phillipses, the Lascelleses (who were in the same position as the Phillipses are, as they were children of the previous Princess Royal), the Armstrong-Joneses, the Ulsters, the St Andrewses, the Lewises, the Gilmans, the Nicholas Windsors, the Taylors, Lord and Lady Frederick, Lady Gabriella, the Ogilvies, and even more remote relatives like the Fifes and Mountbattens, like they are members of the Royal Family, in the meaning of the Sovereign's family. They are Elizabeth II's and the mentioned full members of the Royal Family's descendants and closest cousins. They are all of Royal blood and the closest people to the throne by their places in the order of succession. They are mentioned as members of the Royal Family by the Court officials, like in some reports in the Court Circular. We can say that they are "private" members of the Royal Family, in opposite to the official Royal Family, which is strictly limited. By the way, it is interesting to me that even the female-line grandchildren of a Sovereign are not members of the Royal Family, they enjoy a privilleged position in the order of precedence, among the "full" members.
