I mean it has to be held by the heir apparent. If Charles III is on the throne, and William is alive he is heir apparent so Williams heir cannot be Prince of Wales because his child would only be 2nd in line and not heir apparent.

So so could William be named POW and keep DOC as a 'lesser' title?

They will remain Duke/Duchess of Cambridge until William becomes King but in all likelihood they will be given/inherit more senior titles.

When The Queen dies and Charles becomes King they have no choice and become instantly Duke/Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge. The Cornwall title is automatic to the eldest living son of the monarch who is also heir apparent.

If Charles predeceases his mother then William never becomes Duke of Cornwall but, following the precedent of George II I would imagine that The Queen would create William Prince of Wales - to clearly signify that he is the heir to the throne but he would still be Duke of Cambridge. The Prince of Wales titles has only ever been given to the heir to the throne.

When he becomes King Cambridge will merge with the crown and be available for re-grant. Of course if he has a son and then dies before becoming King then the son would inherit Cambridge as the title was created with the normal remainder of 'heirs male of the body'. If the son is the second or later child then the Cambridge title could be passed down while the daughter becomes The Queen.

If we go back to George V:

He was created Duke of York and that was the name he used until 1901.
From January to November 1901 he was officially known as The Duke of Cornwall and York.
In November he was created Prince of Wales.

He didn't cease to be Duke of York or Duke of Cornwall until 1910 when he succeeded to the throne at which point Cornwall passed to his son and heir and York was available for regrant to his second son in 1923. It then merged with the crown again in 1936.

George III - different again - his father (Frederick) had been created Duke of Edinburgh by his grandfather (George I) and became Duke of Cornwall at the accession of his father (George II) who also created him Prince of Wales. When he died Prince George (the future George III) immediately became Duke of Edinburgh and that was his only title until his grandfather (George II) created him Prince of Wales. He couldn't be Duke of Cornwall because he wasn't the eldest son of George II - that had been his father who died before becoming King.

I'm not sure how giving it royal assent means magically if will pass through other countries with ease. Each country has a way of doing things, and frankly this isn't the most important thing in the world at the minute.

The UK legislation may have received assent, but the various sections still have to be proclaimed to commence, and that won't happen with the main ones until the other realms have passed their legislation.

The UK doesn't dictate what happens in the other realms and each of them are separate realms with a personal union with the monarch.

They will take their own time and do things their own way until they, independently and individually make the decision that suits them - and if that delays things in the UK too bad.

The agreement was always it had to be approved in all realms before coming into effect and the other realms may not see this as all that important - particularly if the baby is a boy.

Australia, for instance, is moving towards an election in September with a strongly republican PM at the moment. It is therefore possible that in Australia this could end up in an argument over the republic issue - it could just as easily pass the federal government with no debate or opposition and then you have the Qld question - which could still see a constitutional challenge to whether or not the federal government has the power to determine the Head of State of each of the states.

Our PM can agree till she's blue in the face but she can't make the States do anything they don't want about issues which are not within the province of the Federal Government. There's a long-standing States' rights issue here which everyone's backed away from the past when it got too heated, but the time may finally have come for it to be resolved by the High Court.

I would thought this would be a Federal matter. Last time I looked it was Queensland making a big noise about it.

That is the point - is it a Federal issue or is it a state and federal issue - remember that the state's constitutions predate the federal constitution.

Just because the PM agreed to it doesn't mean all that much when she is only months from a federal election and the possibility/probability of a change in government. She also has to deal with the fact that a large percentage of her party are republicans and could easily use this debate as a chance to force another referendum on that issue (which was promised back in 2007 for the second term of a Labor government but hasn't been delivered yet) - just to be difficult they could also vote it down simply to show Australia's independence - not saying they would but that is also a possibility.

The debate with Qld centres around the concept that The Queen, in addition to be Queen of Australia is separately Queen of each of the states.

That is why this could end up in a constitutional challenge in the High Court - which could take some time to resolve as it is no unusual for cases to take literally years to be heard in the High Court and then for the judges to make their decisions.

I apologies for being a bit heavy handed when I posted the link earlier.

This issue is similar to the one that I had expected to see occur in Canada. Here the relationship with the monarch is established in the constitution, and it can be argued that in order to change the succession to the throne the constitution has to be changed - which requires the consent of the provinces. That ended up not happening, and I'm honestly surprised that none of the provinces, especially Quebec which is currently lead by a separatist government, spoke up about it.

Queensland puts its own stamp on royal succession - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Queensland isn't prepared to wait. They've passed laws allowing a first-born female child to become heir and to allow royals to marry Roman Catholics.

But it doesn't matter yet so long as it gets sorted before the 2nd child is born.

I've read the article - all bad news till you get towards the end of the piece:

"However, some experts said it might still go ahead because the Act received royal assent in Canada in March".

Ooooh....this gets my goat! Just when all is well and everyone is happy, there's always some meddling, cantakerous pair of know-it-alls ready to come along and put a spanner in the works! They're the types who come and sit right next to you on the bus talking loudly even when there are plenty of other seats!
