I've deleted posts discussing Meghan's baby shower and her travel arrangements from New York. Please stop bringing that topic over to other threads.

I've also deleted off-topic comments about Jeffrey Epstein. This thread is about the Earl and Countess of Wessex, let's stick to the topic.

Wonderful news for the Earl of Wessex. Sophie and Edward do such great work that sometimes go unnoticed.

At first it seemed unusual in my view to grant an additional title 20 years after he married and received a title, but it is consistent with Queen Elizabeth II's grant of the title Princess Royal to Princess Anne, and knighthoods to Angus Ogilvy and Tim Laurence, many years after their respective marriages.

The press release says the title is for use in Scotland.
