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.

Name an attractive available title? I genuinely don’t understand what makes a title “attractive”. HM gets the titles from the figurative “bank” of titles that have merged with the crown.

I don’t know, make up one. The Earldom of Serenity. The Earldom of Isles. The Earldom of Heather. The Earldom of Highland.

I am surprised he didn't get a Scottish title on his wedding day. Why now?

The most "Liked" reply to the announcement is extremely contemptuous of the Earl.

https://twitter.com/RoyalFamily/stat...78617412485122

Is there a reason the Earl of Wessex is apparently so disliked? It surprises me very much, as he appears dedicated to his duties and no recent scandals come to mind.
