Clarence is the best title for Harry. I hate Sussex.

There is no Duke of Clarence with claimants currently.

The last Duke of Clarence died without issue in 1892. He was the eldest son of Edward VII - named Albert Victor.

You are confusing Clarence with the deprived titles of Cumberland and/or Albany.

Why hasn't anyone claimed it? Do they just not want it or do they not know who should have it?

The successors aren’t people who are unaware of the workings of nobility, so they likely know that they have this option.

The current heir to the Duke of Cumberland is Prince Ernst Augustus of Hanover. The title was last used by Ernest Augustus, Crown Prince of Hanover, the son of George V of Hanover (and great-grandson of George III of the UK). This EA had his titles deprived during WWI. His son, Ernest Augustus, Duke of Brunswick, fought in WWI and so wouldn’t have been able to try to get the title back. This EA’s son, Ernest Augustus, Hereditary Prince of Brunswick, fought in WWII for the Germans, so again not likely to get the title restored. The current EA is this EA’s son.

The last Duke of Albany was Charles Edward, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, who fought in WWI. He didn’t fight in WWII... but was a Nazi. His son, Johann Leopold, fought in WWII for the Germans. His son, Ernst Leopold, could have claimed it, but didn’t, nor has his son Hubertus. It’s interesting, because Johan Leopold renounced his claims to Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to marry (making his children ineligible to claim the title); the Hanover’s don’t need to claim Cumberland because they have bigger titles to claim, but the Saxe-Coburgs who could claim Albany can’t also claim Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Probalby they don't want the titles but don't want to renounce them in case any children they might have, would feel differently.. so they are just doing nothing...

Well....I'll add my vote to those who believe it will, in all likelihood, be Sussex. Though I'll also add my vote to those who wish it wouldn't. I really don't have any great reason why I wish it wouldn't, other than perhaps the puns and jokes that might come of it.

I do with that Ross or Avondale, Montagu, Ancaster, or Buckingham were possibilities. Or even something entirely new which, while a possibility, is not likely. I'd really even prefer Clarence over Sussex, though.

Alas....I think we'll probably have to settle for Sussex and try not to laugh too hard at the off color jokes that will surely come with it.

Prince Leopold's had one son Charles Edward. Charles was the one who was deprived of his title due to his German involvement.

But he didn't lose his claim to Albany, as morganatic marriage don't exist in the UK. It is his grandson Hubertus who is the current 'titular duke of albany' though never claimed it. Hubertus has a son who is 24, and 2 younger brothers who are 1-3 in line. Hubertus' uncle Peter is 4th, Peter's sons are 5th and 6th and his grandson 7th. Since Charles Edward's second son Hubertus died before him, his youngest child Friedrich became head of the house of Sax-Coburg. Friedrich is the father of Andreas, the current head of the family. Andreas is 8th, his son Hubertus 9th, his grandson Philip 10th, and his younger son Alexander is 11. Andreas had a younger brother Adrian. Adrian died in 2011, but his two sons are 12th and 13th.

Other then Peter who is 78 and Andreas 72, the majority are young enough to add. Many are still very young.

I don't see the line dying out any time soon. Shame the family doesn't just all reject their claim. No one has bothered to try claiming it in decades. But seems unlikely to happen.

I did not know about Hubertus having a right to the Albany title and just not claiming it. It is pretty silly, yet I still think if I had a claim to a title, and to that one, that was Leopold's title, I would want it. Because why not?

Yes, but Edward had a very different reputation than Harry. Harry was regarded, especially a few years ago as being very much the eligible bachelor, a bit of a ladies man, or at least the tabloids tried to paint that sort of picture, and it will be the British tabs, headed by the Fail and Sun that will be making the SusSEX puns in their newspaper headlines when the news breaks.

It probably won't be as bad as all that. There might be a silly headline such as "Sexy Sussex" here and there but I doubt it will go viral. I don't think there are enough people who care. Those who do care will be much more interested in the new bride to care about the duchess title.

The Coburgs have other more prominent titles and I guess living abroad they don't really care about a foreign title.

I can't find the relevant thread for this but I wonder whether Meghan's father could claim that as his when his daughter becomes engaged and it could be incorporated on his daughter's after marriage. It's a rather nice design in a beautiful blue.

If it cannot be claimed, they might at least use it as an inspiration to create a coat of arms for Meghan (would it be possible to just award it to her as her father is a non-British citizen?).

Question. Can an old German coat of arms even be eligible for approval by the College of Arms? I would imagine that they're as valid in the UK as German foreign titles? Its an idea to maybe use it for an inspiration maybe.

I know next to nothing about heraldry.
