The daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales is now third in line to the British throne.
that Princess Charlotte may receive a new title from King Charles III as an emotional tribute to the Queen. Previously, this title was supposed to be received by the younger brother of King Charles, Prince Edward. Express writes about it.
It is known that Prince Edward was promised the title by his father, Prince Philip, the last holder of the title of Duke of Edinburgh. There was even a certain agreement, according to which Charles, having ascended the throne, would assign this title to his brother. But so far the coronation has not taken place, but the king can already assign titles.
For Princess Charlotte, another more important title is predicted in the future – the title of Princess Royal, which has been held by Princess Anne since 1987. The title is bestowed for life, even if the heiress outlives her monarch parent. Therefore, while Anna is alive, Charlotte cannot become a royal princess. For this reason, Elizabeth II's father, King George VI, could not make his eldest daughter a royal princess, as her aunt, Princess Mary, held the title at that time.
The title of princess royal was established by Charles I for his daughter , Princess Mary, in 1962. Since then, only seven people, including 71-year-old Princess Anne, have been honored to wear it. Although the title is traditionally given to the sovereign's eldest daughter, it is not automatic. The last royal princess before Anne was Princess Mary, the only daughter of King George V and Queen Mary, who died in 1965. For 22 years, the title remained vacant until the Queen bestowed it on her daughter, Princess Anne.
Focus wrote that King Charles III of Great Britain reserved the title of Duchess of Edinburgh for her granddaughter. This grandfather's gift will honor the memory of the late Elizabeth II, who held this title until 1952, when she began to rule the kingdom.
