Translation:
 William and Kate can earn dukedom in Scotland after marriage

 NEW YORK - One day, Prince William and Kate Middleton may be the king and queen of the realms of the Commonwealth - the organization of independent countries that share historical ties with Britain, like Canada, Australia and New Zealand. But later this month, the young couple should have become proprietors of a small part of Scotland. According to the newspaper "Scotland On Sunday ", the Dukedom of Strathearn is on the list who may be granted to William and Kate when they married on the 29th of April.

 The title, which refers to a picturesque area of Perthshire and belonged to the father of Queen Victoria, is not in use since 1943, died when the second Duke of Connaught and Strathearn.

 Tradition dictates that senior members of the royal family have a Scottish title and an English title, to strengthen the union of the two nations. Besides being the Duke of Cornwall's father, William, Prince Charles is also Duke of Rothesay.

 Several other ducats are available for Prince William, but some have been discarded, including Windsor - the former Prince Edward abdicated in 1937 - Albany and Cumberland - they fought for the enemy in World War I - and Clarence, in association with Prince Eddy, eldest brother of George V.

 The securities are a gift from the queen. We can not speculate on any possible way - said a spokesman for Buckingham Palace

Errr Laura they lived in Scotland for 4 years while at SA they have definitely visited Scotland.

I am not saying they understand the culture and history of Scotland or care but to say they have never visited is incorrect.

I wish we had a brain fart smilie! LOL!,  tehe  (note to self "think before you type")

I suppose what I meant was although they have studied/lived in scotland they have not done anything to benefit scotland or promote scottish charities. I don't feel they have done anything to deserve a Scottish dukedom. Shouldnt some one who has spent their lives servicing scotland be awarded with a dukedom.

 hug we all have those braindead moments  there

I agree with your latest post, Kate has done nothing, William the bare minimum and none of it for Scotland. One cringe worthy and awkward visit does not count.

But unfortunately that is not how Royal Dukedoms work.
