The title traditionally goes to the youngest son of the Sovereign. So when Andrew dies it would be available to give out again. Personally I suspect the first person it could go to next is Prince Louis in time.

Since there is no legal heir, the title will become extinct when the current Duke passes away.



Under recent custom, British princes are normally given a dukedom when they get married. Assuming Prince Louis gets married after his great-uncle is deceased, he may be given the title of Duke of York. Prince Andrew is only 58 though, so it is perfectly possible he will still be alive 30-35 years from now when Louis probably will get married (based on the average age of marriage for royals nowadays). If the title of Duke of York is not available yet and William is already King when Louis marries, then Louis may be given his father's former title of Duke of Cambridge, which will have merged with the Crown by then.

I assume you mean second son instead of youngest son. Neither the current duke of York nor his grandfather were youngest sons.

Same for Prince Andrew's great-grandfather, George V. He also was a second son (although the eldest living son at the time the Dukedom of York was conferred upon him in 1892).
