Or we could wait until he (and/or Caroline) appears in the Court Circular to get the correct answer!

I hope this isn't off-topic, but does anyone know exactly why Edward VII declared that the two daughters of the Princess Royal - Maud and Alexandra - should have the tutular dignity of princesses of the UK and the style Highness? What was the thinking behind this, if anyone knows? And had the style "highness" ever been used in Britain before?

Yes, of course. I think that the great-grandsons of the monarch were styled as such for some time.

Is an excellent source of British peerage titles..by rank and then by title and the broken into the families...

Speaking of which, did you know that in Hertford, Hereford and Hampshire, hurricanes hardly ever happen? :-)

By the way, there is no Hampshire peerage title at all.

The King elevated his two Fife grandaughters to HH Princess of GB and Ireland at the same time he made Louise The Princess Royal. It was probably done to reflect their mother's status, which was superior to her husband's.

Maybe. But the Foreign Office would probably have to be consulted to ensure no offense to Germany, which does not recognize any of the former royal titles in the federal republic. There is no longer a Prince of Hanover.

It would be politically correct to address him the other way. Legally, he is Ernst-August, Prince von Hannover, so HRH Prince Ernst-August von Hannover is close enough.

I guess that makes sense, since Princess Louise was the first Princess Royal to marry someone of lower status. I wondered why George V didn't follow this tradition with Princess Mary, but perhaps since she had two sons, one of which was heir to an earldom, it wasn't seen as necessary.

In a similar verin, I've often wondered why Princess Anne declined a peerage for her husbands. I'm inclined to think she feels they're not worthy!

Do you really think the German government, with all they are going through presently, gives a toss about Ernst August and his titles???

C'mon...they have bigger issues right now....

I think Mark Phillips was adamant about not becoming a peer and Anne was fully supportive of his decision. They wanted their children to have a down-to-earth upbringing. But, of course, the Queen could grant Peter and Zara peerages at any time (most likely when they marry, at least in Peter's case).

With Tim Laurence, there was no reason to make him a peer since Anne wasn't going to have any children with him.

I have a feeling that Peter wouldn't accept a title as he has lived 28 yrs without one. Both Peter and Zara seem to be well adjusted people and are happy to live their lives without being titled.

Black days for Conrad's memorial | the Daily Mail


quote.............

No stranger to brushes with the law, the colourful Duke of Manchester has once again found himself in trouble. The eccentric aristocrat, who lives in California, has been involved in a confrontation with police near his Newport Beach home after a dispute over a restraining order between him and his ex-wife Wendy.
Alexander Montagu - or Lord Alex as he styles himself in the U.S. - claims that after a visit from police officers, he was left with an open wound the size of a fist on his chest.

Now the 44-year-old Duke says he has filed a £100million lawsuit against the local sheriff's department for his injuries. As a young man Montagu, whose father the 12th Duke was also a convicted criminal, did time in Australia for fraud and assault. "The judge said I'd swallowed the silver spoon," he tells Tatler magazine.

Royal Dukes

Are there any active Dukedoms in the UK, older than the Dukedoms of Kent and Gloucester, that are originally descended from a Royal Duke? I think that all the Dukedoms conferred upon Queen Victoria's male children have all become extinct or merged back with the Crown. I've researched back to George III and I can't seem to find any.

I can't find any, either. The closest ones out there are descendants of a few illegitimate children of Charles II, but they wouldn't have counted as royal.
