A thread for all our questions about royalty. So you don't know who can were a tiara? What infanta means? How are the british and norwgians royals related? Ask here and someone will try to answer.

 I hope that you like the idea as many of us are newbies in this topic and we don't know much about royalty. Moreover as many posters are from different parts of Europe we can share our knowledge about our respectives monarchies.

As Alexandrine said, titlle don't pass to females in UK. The title will rteturn to the crown and the King/Queen will give it to another male in the family (by tradition is given to the 2nd son/eldest brother of the sovereign)...

Prince Andrew will be Duke of York until his death and Harry will probably get a Dukedom when he marries. I'm not sure, but if is the wish of the sovereign, Harry will change dukedoms when Andrew passes away.

It's like what will happen with Edward. It's said that upon the death of Prince Philip, he will keep the title of Duke of Edimbourg and no longer be known as Earl of Wessex.

Not exactly. I don't know if you can give up dukedoms but the most probable thing is that Harry would get two titles, although imo he is not going to be ever duke of york.

And when Prince Phillipe dies the title will pass to Charles and until Charles is king he won't we able to give the title to Edward, and in this case I also doubt that he is going to give up his earldom.

So does this mean Charles will be known still as POW first and foremost?

Prince of Wales is title granted to the heir apparent of the British monarch. When the Queen dies and Charles become King, he will no longer have any of the titles he has now because they are associated with the position of heir to the throne.

William will automatically became Duke of Cornwall as the title is hereditary but the "Prince of Wales" isn't, the title has to be created again. Charles will need to issue a letters patent granting William the title of Prince of Wales.

Mousie don't the women that could inherit earldoms have tried to change the successions laws in UK? Because they would win the case, some women did that in Spain and the law had to change because the human rights commission of the UN said so.

Can you imagine a time when the truth ran free ...

If the Act of Settlement changes primogeniture, I imagine there will be additional changes to aristocratic inheritance. ...

I suppose that without a real constitution a change of this type is easier in UK. One wonders what the aristos think about a possible change.
