I think Duke of Clarence would be right as one Duke of Clarence became King (William IV.) and another would habe became King if he lived longer (Albert Victor). But i have often read that it is regarded as unlucky so perhaps not.

I doubt The Queen would create Harry a Duke upon marriage while leaving William to carry an earldom only. My point is in keeping with the recent trend of presenting a more "modern" image, it may be decided William and Harry will be created Earls while their grandmother reigns, with their father deciding which dukedom to bestow on Harry once he becomes The King.

I agree Clarence is very likely, although it is still extant with the dukedom of Albany as an earldom at present.

He will always be held at a higher position because of what he will become.
And she may well not. It was a 'possibility' branchg highlighted, and one I would think appropriate at this point in time. Though having William created a Duke, is something I'd would anticipate sooner or later. I just don't think making Harry a Duke before his elder brother to be of any real concern, if it were to occur. But who knows...

This seems very possible to me, especially since Prince Edward will remain an earl until after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. It seems strange that the princes would have superior titles to their uncle (though, of course, William's eventually going to outrank everyone, and they do precede him in the order of succession).

Plus, I would imagine there are plenty of earldoms that could be used or created anew for the princes when they marry. Perhaps Harry would be created an earl with the same sort of understanding that Edward and Prince Philip have -- when Prince Andrew dies, Harry would (as second son of a king) be created Duke of York?

But for William IV. it was Duke of Clarence and St. Andrews. The Queen can combine it with another title she or William wishes and is avalible or it can be only Duke of Clarence and not Duke of Clarence and ...

But that's difficult. What if Andrew remarries and has a son with his second wife?? I think harry will get a ducal title when his father becomes King. In the Biography about Queen mary it is statet that Quuen Victoria didn'Ät want to give a ducal title to the future George V: when his brother was alive, because he was only third in line to the throne and created him only Duke of York afte the death of Albert Victor.

I remember in one biography (probably of Queen Mary) Queen Victoria is quoted as not liking royal dukedoms at all because she thought that being a Prince was something really special whereas there were so many Dukes floating around that it seemed to her to be a demotion. So maybe that was the origin of her reluctance. It would have been a real break with tradition for her to confer a dukedom on Eddy but not George.

Some people are saying that William and Harry might be granted earldoms upon marriage if they marry during the Queen's reign. This brings forth an idea/question for me. Do you suppose it is possible that they could each by courtesy use their father's earldoms? Like william could be Earl of Chester, and Harry the Earl of Carrick?

Maybe not, because I think the Earldom of Chester, if not also Carrick, is irretrievably locked with the PoW title. But it was just a thought....

If they were to use their father's lesser titles as courtesy titles, they would already be doing so. No, if they are to be granted Earldoms or Dukedoms, it will be in their own right, to be passed down to children (in Harry's case), or merge in the Crown (in William's). For Harry, the title will continue in much the same way that the Dukedom of Kent has, or Gloucester.

I suspect that if either prince marries during the reign of the present Queen they will then be granted their Dukedoms. If Harry were to marry before William I would expect William to get a Dukedom first anyway to have the older title.

Say William got Duke of London when his father becomes king he will then be known instantly as the Duke of Cornwall and London, just as George V spent from late January to early November 1901 as Duke of Cornwall and York.

When the time comes I expect Charles to seek advice from his Welsh ministers to decide on creating William Prince of Wales. If the advice is positive he will do so. If it is negative he will respect that advice and not do so and William will use the two Dukedoms while heir.

Harry will keep his own Dukedom and pass it down to his children.

Not really. They are both Princes of the UK and Royal Highnesses by birth as the children of a son of a Sovereign. Their father, being the heir to the throne and eldest son of The Sovereign, holds his titles by grant or by automatic assumption in his own right only until he becomes King.

I can't honestly see Charles NOT conferring title of Prince of Wales on William when the time comes. That is as much historical precedent as Zadok the Priest being played during the Coronation. So I honestly don't know what other title he'd use, aside from Duke of Cornwall if for some reason PoW is not given to him. He'd probably only use DoC in that case.

As you commented.. the titles are inextricably entwined together.

However.. so are many other subsidiary titles, and yet the sons may use them as courtesy titles.

Thats never been done before in the BRF I don't think. Crown Prince tends to translate into the title Prince of Wales.

The term Prince Royal is another term for Crown Prince, used for Portugal, Haiti and France in the day. IMO it would add confusion to whoever got the title The Princess Royal next.

Under the circumstances of Charles becoming King and the Prince of Wales title not being used again, how about William having the title HRH (The) Crown Prince William of The United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. Obviously for general media use he'll just be referred to as The Crown Prince here and abroad it would be Crown Prince William. Alternatively, could he not be known as The Prince Royal?

Don't forget that the instant Charles becomes King William will be Duke of Cornwall etc and that title is restricted to the eldest son of the monarch who is also the heir to the throne. Whileever there is male preference in Britain that title Duke of Cornwall is held by the Crown Prince so there is no need for another title at all. And as the income of the heir comes from the Duchy of Cornwall estate is makes more sense to have that title be used by the heir as their primary title.

Quoted from iluvbertie: "If Harry were to marry before William I would expect William to get a Dukedom first anyway to have the older title."

I don't think Harry will be "allowed" to marry before William. It's a good way to control the distribution of titles. All the Queen's sons married in birth order. A coincidence --- perhaps.
