Ah I was right. I didn't notice him, but thought he was likely there some where. He served on the war graves commission with the Duke of Kent. He usually is in attendance at these type of events.

Hello all. Does anyone know if he has a title at all. We know he is vice admiral but is he HRH Timothy, The Prince Royal to his wife. HRH Princess Anne, The Princess Royal?

No title.

In the UK men do not take styles and titles from their wives - only the other way round.


Anne, in addition to be HRH The Princess Anne, The Princess Royal is also Mrs Timothy Laurence although she doesn't use that anymore than she used Mrs Mark Philips when married to Mark.

The Queen did, reportedly offer Mark a title at the time of the marriage that both he and Anne refused. As far as I am aware the Queen has never considered making an offer of a title to Tim.

Princess Margaret wanted her children to be titled and so insisted on her husband having a title while both Anne and Alexandra were happy for their children to be untitled.

Beatrice and Eugenie, unless they marry a man with a title, will also have untitled husbands and children, as will Louise's in time although she is a Lady as the daughter of an Earl (and will remain as such when the time comes and Edward is created Duke of Edinburgh on the passing of both his parents).

Anna is NOT Mrs Timothy Laurence. She is Lady Laurence.
And Timothy Laurence has a title. He is a a knight (an honorary title).

Obviously, knights are not peers, but it's a title.

Tim Laurence is only 4-5 years younger than Anne.

Sir Timothy Laurence represents his mother-in-law very well. Princess Anne certainly can be quite proud of her husband.

Tim is certainly an under rated member of the royal family

He gets over looked so much as he has no title and he isn't a 'working royal' but like the York girls, he certainly works for the royals. And he does a great job of representing his wife and mother in law.

Great seeing him in NZ especially after the recent attacks. It was nice to see the Sussexes and Anne visit NZ house in London, but this is one step further.

As far as I understand the workings of the family, he is not really considered a part of the royal family as he is just the husband of a princess not a royal highness himself.

He is not a working member of the royal family. But as the son in law of the queen he is certainly a member of the family. One doesn't have to be a HRH to be a member of the family.

And it is clear, even if the media ignores it, the queen does ask him to represent her on numerous occasions.


There are those who are 'members of the firm' and are official working royals. And then there are those like the Yorks and Tim who are considered 'private citizens' and members of the royal family by marriage/blood. But just as the York girls do, Tim does have a roll within the family, a very small roll.

Times have changed since Mark or Anthony. It gives some credence to when Charlotte marries one day, her husband may have some minor roll as well.

I will miss spotting him in all sorts of places around Europe and the Pacific. He is a wonderful speaker, clear, concise, but eloquent.

I will miss his down to earth but not "common" approach to his position with the War Graves Commission. He will be remembered for his "modern and forward thinking" which helped to raise the profile of the jobs and its continuing mission. Lest we forget.
