This is very true but sometimes you need a generation or two to get past things. The Queen was very young when the Abdication happened, but she owes her position to the events of 1936.

She was very close to both her parents, and I have yet to see her do anything that would reflect badly on their memory or bring attention to a particular bad time for them. For example, she didn't change the position of the the Duchess of Windsor to an HRH despite her uncle asking her to do so when she became Queen. So while the Duke of Windsor was/is a possiblity.....its not going to happen during her lifetime.

Plus why use a recently created Dukedom with a murky past when there are some fantastic ones that haven't been used for some time?

Can she do something random like Duke of Oxford (just an example)? Are there any limitations on what titles she can give others?

I believe the Queen will and can do a lot of things...as she did when she made Edward Earl of Wessex. I just think for the heir's heir she will stay within the confines of history.

Now that William and Kate are engaged they have their own thread. I have corrected the title.
I know I was just joking.

My personal pick is Harry, Duke of Cambridge. I even like Prince Harry of Cambridge. That might be a nice spin on things even if it won't happen. My other pick is Sussex. I just hope that won't make Harry wait around for York.

They won't make Harry wait around for York.

By the time York will probably be available William will have a couple of children and could easily want it for his own second son.

I like Duke of Cambridge as well. I'm also fond of Duke of Clarence, as the last one was the too-short lived Prince Albert Victor.

Well a few years ago, I was all for Harry to get Duke of Cambridge as stated in this thread but now that's not an option. So what should he be given? I like Duke of Abermale or Duke of Clarence.

That's a lot of C's in the family, though: Cornwall, Cambridge, Clarence???

I think it would be better to go with Duke of Sussex (or what about Duke of Buckingham?)

:claps: Duke of Buckingham sounds delectable. It's a strapping and dashing title I think and a fairly known one as well. I wish they would create Suffolk. I like that one but correct me if I am wrong, only Charles Brandon ever had that title since his heirs died prematurely correct?

Sussex or Albany is nice. What about Duke of Sussex-Albany?

Google News shows up a story on Prince Harry - and how he told Chelsy "she's next" last Friday (apparently while a bit tipsy):

Prepare for Royal Wedding No 2 as Prince Harry tells Chelsy Davy: You're next! | Celebrity News | Now Magazine

Yes, it's a gossip magazine and appears to imply that Chelsy's friends passed this information along. I suppose it's possible, but I was hoping he'd find someone else (can't say quite why).

I like the titles Duke of Oxford and Duke of Clarence for the Prince. But is he really marrying this so so-looking girl from Africa?

I hope Harry is named Duke of Oxford; it would go so well with William's title of Duke of Cambridge.

As she has been his only serious girlfriend for the last 5+ years the odds are that she will be the one he marries.

Looks aren't everything. Anyone who judges a person based on looks is very very shallow. Chelsy has so much more going for her - brains, spirit and something that he finds admirable so if she is the one for him then so be it.

I did not like Chelsy at first. I thought she was just some booze hound party girl looking for a prince to party with. I didn't think she dressed well and she still doesn't for all that. But when I heard she was really smart and was applying herself at school, I could not help but be impressed. It seems like she is a woman of the twenty-first century and she will not be willing to give up everything for Harry no matter how much she loves him. We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime there is always Princess Madeline...

Duke of Clarence has a shady past in terms of its previous holders so its not my favorite. As for the whole Oxford route, with William as Cambridge, they sound like the dukes of colleges or something.

I think that Chelsy may break a lot of traditions if she marries Harry and the big one being the expectation that to marry into the royal family at that level the spouse has to give up their personal ambitions to support the royal.

I see no reason why Chelsy couldn't still work as a lawyer and be Harry's wife. She wouldn't do a full load of royal duties of course but would maybe attend the odd event with him, particularly as he is making a career for himself in the army, where I am sure he will serve for at least as long as Andrew served in the navy - that is until his early 40s or even longer - maybe into his 50s.

Would it be possible for Prince Harry to have one of the following titles: Duke of Aberdeen, Duke of Inverness, or Duke of Perth?
