I have a "what if" question. Let's say something weird happens in the line of succession....... the Monaco princely throne passes from Albert to Caroline to Andrea..... Andrea never has children, so it goes to Pierre, also childless, then to Charlotte, who as an old woman by then, gives up her right to the throne to her sister Alexandra. I know this would never happen but it's necessary to go through that for my question. In the unlikely event that Alexandra becomes Princess of Monaco, would the title of the sovereign and family thus change from Serene Highness to Royal Highness? Because certainly Alexandra would be H.R.H. The Princess of Monaco. Once a Royal Highness, you can't be demoted to Serene Highness. It's the same for Caroline. If she succeeds Albert, she'll be Royal Highness. Back to Alexandra, her children would be HRH as well. They'd have to be. So all her descendants would be. An interesting question. I wonder if the family status would eventually graduate from princely to royal as the line goes on with HRH?

Hmmm, interesting and complicated. From what I know, Alexandra has a title (HRH Princess of Hanover, Great Britain and Ireland but it has no "legal standing" now as Germany and Ireland are both republics and the UK does not recognize the title). And as Monaco is a principality and not a kingdom, the sovereign's title can't be HRH, but HSH. The rules are quite clear about that. A principality is ruled by a prince/princess and thus, HSH and not HRH. HRH titles are for kingdoms. I think one's titles can be changed, from HRH to HSH, which does not necesarily mean a demotion. I think there was a HRH princess in the 19th century who married a HSH prince (forgot the names) and she adopted the HSH title as her husband was HSH prince (hereditary prince). BTW, Caroline's rank as HRH is the same as her father and now, Albert's. This is because even though Caro is HRH, the House of Hanover is a non-ruling house while her father and now Albert was/is a sovereign even though they're HSH. They have equal rank with different titles/styles. The Gotha Almanach (spelling?) will be a good reference to explain all possibilities :confused: :). The rules on royalty are complicated and that book can explain it all.

Even still, if Alexandra were to have children wouldn't the kids have her husbands title and style and not hers? None of Caroline's children have titles except Alexandra because of her father.

Absolutely not, not if Alexandra were HRH The Princess of Monaco. Her kids would be recognized as heirs to Monaco and take this senior title over any name or title of their father's. As Alex would be a sovereign, a head of state, then her kids would be recognized as the children of such over anything else.

But............. in reality, as Alex will never be Princess of Monaco and I was only speculating on a hypothetical and far-fetched situation, then yes, Alex's children will take their father's name/title.

Thanks, Monica. I did wonder about the principality limitation.... Yes, you're right about Caroline and Albert having "equal" rank, but I believe in a sense, Albert is actually senior to Caroline, so they're not exactly equal. Despite the HRH Caroline has from her marriage, Albert is a head of state. So in all diplomatic senses, he takes a much more prominent place than Caroline. And as a sovereign, he has to be senior in all royal senses too. Caroline is an HRH, yes, but she does not rule a country or wear a crown.
