In an article published on August 12, CNN briefly introduced the variety of royal titles in the Uk today, and combined with the report and other sources, we will take a look at what titles Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, has given to members of the royal family.
The queen's children are born with an aura, either prince or princess, and they can also be crowned with supreme titles. The British knighthood ranks from top to bottom are: duke, marquis, earl, viscount, baron, is a symbol of aristocratic status. Among them, the most senior dukes were mostly given to members of the royal family, and occasionally to commanders with great military merit.
The Crown Prince Charles, the Queen's eldest son, was knighted "Duke of Cornwall", a title that only the Eldest Son of the King was eligible for. In 1969, Charles was given the royal title of "Prince of Wales", a title that belonged only to the Crown Prince of The United Kingdom.
When the monarch's eldest son married, his wife was given the titles "Duchess of Cornwall" and "Princess of Wales". Charles's original wife, Diana, held both titles, but the two divorced in 1996, but Diana was allowed to retain the title of "Princess of Wales".
After Diana died in a car accident in 1997, the title was discontinued. Probably in the hearts of the British people she is still their Princess of Wales, Charles's current wife Camilla only has the title of "Duchess of Cornwall", but when Charles ascends the throne, she will sit on the throne of the queen, and victory is in sight.
The Title of "Duke of Cambridge" was the Queen's eldest grandson, Prince William, a title that, although nearly 400 years old, had been interrupted since 1904. On 29 April 2011, Prince William's wedding day, the Queen announced the reintroduction of the title, giving it to her eldest grandson, William's wife, Princess Kate, as the "Duchess of Cambridge".
The Queen is 96 years old and her great-grandchildren are full of halls, which is rare in British royal history. Under current English law, Prince Charles's eldest grandson was entitled to inherit titles, such as William's eldest son, Prince George. In addition, the queen set a precedent by allowing Charles's eldest son William and other children to automatically enjoy the title of throne upon birth, so Charlotte and Louis are now princesses and princes.
Do you wonder that after Charles's second son, Harry, withdrew from the royal family, his royal titles and titles and titles disappeared with his family? It won't be.
Harry has been a prince since birth, and like the birthmark, this royal title has been his life. In addition, he still enjoyed the right to inherit the British throne and was the sixth in line to the throne. As for Harry's children, Archie and Lilybert, they could only enjoy the royal titles of prince and princess if Charles ascended the throne. On 19 May 2018, when Harry married Meghan, the Queen declared Harry the "Duke of Sussex" and Meghan the "Duchess of Sussex". This title also followed them, and they did not give up or be withdrawn by the Queen.
Curious: So what exactly did Harry and Meghan give up in 2020 when they quit the royal family?
The monarch's immediate family is often honored as "His/Her Royal Highness" (HRH), which is second only to the monarch 'His Majesty' and is required to perform due royal duties on behalf of the king. After retiring from the royal family, Harry and his wife no longer used the honorific title of "Your Highness" and no longer assumed royal duties. In addition, taxpayers no longer need to support them, and they have to reimburse taxpayers for a £2.4 million renovation of the matrimonial house.
In addition, although the Queen had the sole right to grant titles, she could not easily withdraw the title because it would require the use of the British Parliament bill procedure.
Earlier this year, the Queen's second son, Prince Andrew, stepped down from all his royal duties due to a sexual assault scandal and no longer fulfilled any royal obligations. But he is still the "Duke of York", and like Harry, he has the right to inherit the British throne, he is the ninth in line to the throne, but this can only be regarded as a formal right, after all, Lilybet, who is in front of him, is only 1 year old this year.
So is it possible to refuse the title to be canonized? OK. The Queen's daughter, Princess Anne, married Lieutenant Mark Philips in 1973, and according to royal tradition, men without titles were given honorary titles when they married members of the royal family, but Mark did not accept titles, so his wife Anne had only the status of princess and no other titles, and their children were born without any royal titles or titles of nobility.
