And we go back to the basics on this musical chairs titlefest, if he ceases to be Duke of York what do we do with Ex-wife Sarah's consort title?
So, let Edward have York and keep Scotland's capital for another royal generation in the works.
Camilla cannot be anything but Queen Consort when Charles becomes King unless Parliament agrees to pass an Act allowing her to hold a lesser title and rank. The wife of the King is Queen and the marriage cannot be morganatic.

Sarah is the former wife of the current Duke of York and retains the right to be styled "Sarah, Duchess of York", until she remarries or chooses to drop the style. Even if Andrew passed on, she would still be styled in this way, regardless if a new creation of the dukedom was granted to another royal prince.

That makes more sense, although I doubt the York title will be recycled to another couple before Sarah passes on. Chrisy57 posted on # 63 an interesting link http://hereditarytitles.com/Page34.html on the many vacant titles availabe for future use so the York title might not see the light of day again in many, many decades.
ps. Thanks for the link Chrisy57!

I think it's more likely that (assuming Andrew doesn't remarry and have a son) the York title will be reserved for William's second son and won't be given to Harry whether Sarah is still around or not. Harry will probably be given a title when he marries, which may well be within the next five years; if Andrew is still alive the York title won't be free, but if he isn't, I think maybe they'll wait with it.

Assuming William and Harry are not given another title by the time they get married such as a royal dukedom, and say QEII is still on the throne and Charles is still waiting..then their wives take on the title such as Princess William of Wales.

The only time a woman who marries into the family is known as HRH Such and such of something is when her husband has another title to use. Such was the case with Andrew becoming Duke of York. Sarah was officially known as HRH the Duchess of York and NOT Princess Andrew.

Wow so it has to do with the husband getting a different title and sort of a plot of land to, say, 'duke' over? But..but..but..if they don't, then that means the wife just isn't a princess or whatever the title, in her own right, hence the "princess <fill in a guy's name" title?
This seems really, kindof, pre-Anne Boleyn or something if you ask me. Why can't these ladies just be called "princess Chelsy" for example with the understanding she got the title courtesy of marrying a blue-blood?
Gosh, no wonder they say the english are eccentric!

But if he marries AND he's given a dukedon, why isn't it then, in that case, "Duchess Henry of Isle of Man" or whatever?

So it is related to being affiliated with some sort of plot of land, then? Is that why for example Diana wasn't called "Princess Charles of Windsor"? Apologies for my probably think-headed questions, but my brain just can't seem to grok this one.

I think it's best explained this way;

When a woman marries into the Royal Family, and her husband hasn't got a peerage, she is Princess (His Name) of (Wherever). If he has got a Peerage, then she uses the female version of it. If she marries into the Royal Family and she's of Royal Birth, and her husband hasn't got a peerage, she can use her own name and be known as Princess (Her Name) of (Wherever). If her husband has a peerage, she uses the female version of it.

If he marries and is given a dukedom, he'd be known as HRH The Duke of Whatever and his wife would be HRH The Duchess of Whatever.

It isn't really a plot of land these days as much as historical precedent in terms of which dukedomes are traditionally royal. A wife takes her husband's name; Prince Charles wasn't Prince Charles of Windsor, so Diana wasn't Princess Charles of Windsor. The children of the monarch are just HRH The Prince (or Princess) First Name until they're given a dukedom or other title.

Diana wasn't called Princess Charles of Wales, because Prince Charles wasn't called Prince Charles of Wales. Before becoming the Duchess of Gloucester, the present duchess was known as Princess Richard of Gloucester.
There's another one: Prince Harry is hardly ever referred to by his Christian name Prince Henry.

The old Duke of Gloucester was also Prince Henry and was called Harry in the family, but I think he was known as Prince Henry to outsiders before he got his dukedom. Goes to show how things have lightened up over the past century!

I would love to see Harry get Sussex; it would be nice to have some little Prince/sses of Sussex running about. I suppose they will be demoted to lords and ladies, but I think that's a shame.

He wil not inherit the present Dukedom. If Prince Philip dies next month the Dukedom will be inherited by Prince Charles and when he succeeds his mother it will merge with the crown and Charles can than create Edward Duke of edinburgh. So it will be a new creaton with probably Earl of Wessex and Viscount Severn as junior Titles.

Okay, question. Will Beatrice inherit the Duchy of York after Andrew? Or does it pass directly through the male line only? Because technically Harry IS the second son...???

No, Beatrice won't inherit the dukedom. It'll become available again after Andrew's death.

Whenever I refer to him, I always call him Prince Henry. For some reason "Harry" doesn't sound like a royal name. It's just a quirk of mine, I guess.

Cute movie but seriously inaccurate historically.

No, Edward is supposed to inherit the Dukedom of Edinburgh after his father, Prince Philip's crossing over. Sophie will become the Duchess of Edinburgh for your information.
