No. William will remain "Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn, and Baron Carrickfergus" until he becomes King, when those titles will merge with the crown and be eligible for re-granting. He will just have the heir's titles added to them, and as heir's titles are more important, William will be called by the most senior one he has. If they follow the precedent of the future George V, who was titled as "Duke of Cornwall and York" before being created "Prince of Wales" William may be known as "The Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge" (Duke of Rothsay" in Scotland) until he becomes "Prince of Wales."



George and his siblings' titles will change as well: from being "of Cambridge" they will progress to "of Cambridge and Cornwall" to "of Wales" and eventually just "The Prince George, The Princess Charlotte, and The Prince Louis" once William is himself King.

George will never be The Prince George. The moment his siblings become The Princess Charlotte, and The Prince Louis, he will be The Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay in Scotland

Yes he will. A good example is looking at the entry in the Court Circular that Princess Larisa posted in the Prince's Trust thread yesterday. It states "The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay, President, The Prince's Foundation, this evening held a Dinner for Supporters."

Charles does not use Duke of Cornwall when in Scotland.

Prince George's most likely sequence of short styles is:


HRH Prince George of Cambridge
HRH Prince George of Cornwall and Cambridge
HRH Prince George of Wales
HRH The Duke of Cornwall
HRH The Prince of Wales
HM The King


Once he becomes HRH The Duke of Cornwall, he will also be HRH The Prince George.

Between the D of Cornwall and P of Wales will probably be a title of his own when he marries. Or would that always be a 'lesser' title than Cornwall ?

If George gets married before he becomes the Prince of Wales and is given another peerage, he will be, I believe, HRH The Duke of Cornwall and xxx, just as Prince William will probably be HRH The Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge before he becomes HRH The Prince of Wales.

More likely he will gain a title while Prince George of Wales as I doubt that he would be allowed to marry between becoming the Duke of Cornwall and The Prince of Wales - a period that will be more likely weeks or months rather than years while the court is in mourning for the death of Grandpa Charles.

Should he gain any title of his own - such as William's Duke of Cambridge title - he would use Cornwall first from becoming Duke of Cornwall as it is the older title.

The precedent for that would be George V who from January 1901 until November 1901 was HRH The Duke of Cornwall and York. In Scotland he was simply The Duke of Rothesay of course with Earl of Inverness ignored.

As the son of the Sovereign he will most definitely be "The Prince George" regardless of any other titles he may have - he just won't be called "The Prince George," except as was noted above, in Scotland. Charles's full title is "His Royal Highness The Prince Charles Philip Arthur George, Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland. KG, KT."

They didn't do so for Meghan, so I see little reason to treat another foreigner who is expected to becoming a working member of the firm differently than the latest addition to the family (while I still think was a mistake to not fast-track her nationality).

But there wouldn't be a reason to give him another peerage (dukedom) upon his marriage even if he would marry between becoming the duke of Cornwall and the prince of Wales (which could happen; for example, prince Friso of the Netherlands got married a month after his grandmother died) if he already has a dukedom. Charles wasn't offered a dukedom upon his marriage as he already had several dukedoms and a princedom (among other titles).

Come to think of it. If George already has Cornwall and Wales, I don't think he WILL get another title upon marriage.
Did prince Charles get any more when he married?

No. Charles has had Cornwall and Rothesay since 1952 and Wales (and Chester) since 1958 so he wasn't given any more when he married.

George would only get an extra set of titles if he were to marry in the reign of his grandfather (or, and extremely unlikely) the reign of his great-grandmother ... and yes I know how old The Queen is and how old George is so know it is very unlikely he would marry in the reign of Elizabeth II.

Of course it isn't necessary to wait for a Prince to marry for them to be given a title. George V gave all of his younger sons (other than John) their dukedoms a number of years before they married. Queen Victoria also gave Dukedoms to her grandsons before they married. She also created her younger sons Duke before they married - e.g. The Duke of Edinburgh was raised to the peerage in 1866 but didn't marry until 1874. It is only Queen Elizabeth II who has made her sons and grandsons wait until their wedding days for such honours.

And herein lies the big rub. The Queen has reigned for so long and as the majority of the people on this planet have never known another monarch on the throne, the way Queen Elizabeth II has done things in her reign seems to be the "written in stone" traditions of how its always been.

Longevity does that to traditions I guess.

In 1996, the Queen issued new letters patent:

The QUEEN has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 21st August 1996, to declare that a former wife (other than a widow until she shall remarry) of a son of a Sovereign of these Realms, of a son of a son of a Sovereign and of the eldest living son of the eldest son of The Prince of Wales shall not be entitled to hold and enjoy the style, title or attribute of Royal Highness.

Does this mean that if Prince Michael of Kent, or the Duke of Gloucester, for example, were to divorce, would their wife remain an HRH?

Same if Prince Andrew had a son who was an HRH, would a divorced wife retain the HRH?

And imagine Prince Philip were to remarry (for whatever reason) and subsequently divorce, would the new Duchess of Edinburgh still be HRH after divorce?

As I read it, the 1996 Letters Patent do not deal with the situations you are listing. They were specifically created to deal with the divorced Diana and Sarah.

In practice, if the Dukes of Gloucester or Kent were to divorce, my guess is that their former wives would officially loose their titles and be styled quite like Diana or Sarah, i.e. Brigitta, Duchess of Gloucester. These would not be official titles.

The Duke of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent and Prince Michael of Kent are all sons of a son of the Sovereign and so, should they divorce their wives would lose the HRH as stated in these LPs. Their fathers were The Prince Henry and The Prince George - 3rd and 4th sons of George V

Prince Andrew's son would also be covered under this as the son of a son of a sovereign.

Note the the LPs refer to 'a' Sovereign not 'the Sovereign.

Prince Philip's situation is not covered so new LPs would need to be issued if he were to remarry and then divorce after the death of the Queen.

These LPs also wouldn't apply to a divorced wife of Prince Louis in the present reign (yes I am aware he will be one this week and so the chances of him marrying and divorcing while the Queen is still alive is highly improbable).

The child or children if they have more will become HRH when Charles is King. This is due to the LP's issued back when by King George (I forget what number but I think the Queen's grandfather).
