I don't know if I'm being ignorant but why Louise isn't a princess, isn't a privilege for all the daughters of the sons of the sovereign? or the Queen sat a law or something about it?
another question: do William and Harry have any dukedom or some kind or title or "just" are Princes of the UK?

It us unlikely that when Louise grows up she will take on royal duties. So her parents want her to have a normal life and not have the big title. Willam and Harry do not have Dukedoms yet. They are simply Princes right now.

Like Camilla is not using the title Princess of Wales that she is entitled to use as the wife of the Prince of Wales Louise isn't using the style HRH Princess even though she is entitled to do so.

This was done at the request of her parents and is probably due to the fact that she probably won't undertake royal duties but will have to live a more normal life.

But she actually helds the HRH title?

If I am correct...

HRH Princess Louise of Wessex is the childs actual birthright title, however, by the decision of her parents and the approval of HM the Queen is publically known & referred to as, Lady Louise (ne; Mountbatten-Windsor).

When she comes of age, it is her Ladyships decision (solely) as to whether or not she wishes to keep her current title (which I think she shall), or infact revert back to the title & status of HRH & Princess of the United Kingdom & Northern Ireland.

For it to be extint there has to be no male heir to the 4th Marquis and according to this he is still alive and has a son and a brother both still living.
My mistake! You are correct. George Mountbatten (great-grandson of Prince Louis) is the 4th Marquess and has a son, Henry, Earl of Medina.

A lot of people miss the fact that when Charles becomes King, it is up to him to decide whether to offer the title Prince of Wales to William.:)

So who is Ivar Mountbatten? Do I have the name right?

In regards to Lady Louise, yes she might not have perform in official duties but I doubt she will lead a truly "normal" life. Not to wish harm on the little girl, but she is the granddaughter of a Monarch and the media will need a new "princess" to focus on in about 16 years or so. Zara has had her fill....Beatrice and Eugenie are getting older and you will be seeing them more in the public eye.

Hope this helps!
branchg,
Thanks to you and Elspeth. With the two of you I might just learn something yet!

Ivar Mountbatten is George's younger brother.

He would only succeed to the title if his older brother and nephew both died without further legitimate male issue.

Whether she is called Lady or Princess the fact that she is the granddaughter of a monarch means that she will get the attention when she reaches that age anyway.

Afterall Zara has no title such as Lady or Princess and gets the attention as did Lady Sarah Chatto (Princess Margaret's daughter and therefore granddaughter of a monarch to show another example).

With or without the title she is still a member of the RF.

Until the Queen issues a Royal Warrant, Louise is automatically a Royal Highness and Princess of the UK under the 1917 Letters Patent of George V as the daughter of a son of the Sovereign, just like Beatrice and Eugenie. Her style as Lady Windsor means nothing.

It's rather strange to me that Louise would be styled differently, but I guess they are leaving the door open to future changes with issuance of new letters patent governing the style and title of members of the royal family.

Well, every male heir to the throne since 1301 has been created Prince of Wales, so it's a foregone conclusion he will be.

Tradition suggests that at some time William will become Prince of Wales BUT it is the monarch's peroragative (sp) unlike the title Duke of Cornwall, which is automatically his once his father becomes King.

Charles may wait 5 minutes, a day, a week, a month, a year, a decade or anything time period he chooses.
It is Charles decision as to when, and therefore if, he creates William Prince of Wales.
He might plan on making the creation after a year and die before that happens and thus William is not created Prince of Wales.
It is Charles' decision and not automatic, which is the point we are making.

Well off-topic from "Title for Camilla", but since there's nothing much more to add to that subject, we'll go off on a tangent...

Lord Ivar Mountbatten is a descendant of Queen Victoria.

VRI > Princess Alice (m Grand Duke of Hesse and bei Rhine) > Princess Victoria (m Prince Louis of Battenberg, 1st Marquess of Milford Haven) > Prince George of Battenberg, 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven > David, 3rd Marquess (d 1970).

The 3rd Marquess had two sons:
> George Mountbatten, 4th Marquess of Milford Haven (b 1961), who has two children:
- Harry, Earl of Medina (b 1991)
- Lady Tatiana Mountbatten (b 1990)

> Lord Ivar Mountbatten (b 1963), who has three daughters:
- Ella (b 1996)
- Alexandra (Alix) (b 1998)
- Louise (Luli) (b 2002)

Interesting speculation: Branch, you guess the Queen would change Camilla's title if Charles predeceased her?

To me she could just go on being Duchess of Cornwall and then when William had a son after acceding, the HRH the Dowager Duchess of Cornwall.

Or maybe they would go back to that rather old, rather lovely useage: HRH the Princess Dowager, as I believe Henry styled Catherine of Aragorn before and after her marriage to him.

I wondered last night what would happen (God forbid) if the Queen died suddenly and unexpectedly, of a heart attack or something. In such an unprepared cas Charles and Camilla would be King and Queen, and nothing else, for Camilla would not have yet been gazetted as Princess Consort. So if that were to happen - a sudden death - then there would have to be an active downgrading, vs, if the Queen got sick, they could see the writing on the wall and gazette Camilla before Charles' accessio.

Perhaps in this scenario the British public would say "Don't bother" "Oi, Charles, leave it! " and she could just be Queen - as should have happened all along.
