A prince or princess who is a child of the sovereign (Prince or Princess of the Blood Royal) uses "The" in their formal title. One example is The Prince Andrew. Another example is The Princess Anne. The word the is capitalized.       
You do not see Prince Michael's name as The Prince Michael of Kent. He is just Prince Michael of Kent.   
With Alexander, the Earl of Ulster, the word "the" is not capitalized.   
If Prince Charles is referred to as Prince Charles The Prince of Wales, should not "the" be capitalized?

When Charles is in Scotland the CC usually refers to him as HRH The Prince Charles The Duke of Rothesay but not when he is anywhere else where he is HRH The Prince of Wales/Duke of Cornwall/Earl of Chester.

Prince Michael of Kent's son is Lord Frederick Windsor. Frederick is not referred to as The Lord Frederick Windsor.

You know, I'd never really thought of that but had heard of PA as being HRH The Prince Andrew. And if can see why now. If there were two royal princes/princesses, then it would differentiate between their respective ranks. One being the issue of a Sovereign, the other not.

Thanks for that FL.

^You are welcomed, Little light. And to think THE is merely a pronoun.
