Letters Patent- Duchess of Cambridge's 2nd child
I am very interested in titles and how are they are affected by the Letters Patent of 1917.
According to Letters Patent, the style of "Royal Highness" is reserved for all children of the Sovereign, grandchildren of the Sovereign in the male line, and the FIRST child of the first son of the Prince of Wales, which is Prince George. What do you think will happen when the new baby is born? Do you think he/she will be granted the courtesy title?
My personal belief is that they will styled "Royal Highness" simply because we know the Queen will not live forever (long live the Queen!). With that being said, the new Royal baby's grandfather will become King therefore making the baby a "Royal Highness" anyway. What are your thoughts?
