POLL: Should Duchess of Edinburgh title go to Princess Charlotte?

Princess Charlotte 'may be Duchess of Edinburgh' says Ewart

Princess Charlotte, the second child of the Prince and Princess of Wales, is set to be granted the Duchess of Edinburgh title when the dukedom returns to the Crown following the death of Prince Edward. But do you support King Charles III’s plan? Vote in our poll.

The King is thought to have made the decision to ensure that Charlotte has an important role in the Firm when she is older.

A new book, Our King: Charles III: The Man and the Monarch Revealed, by Robert Jobson has revealed that the seven-year-old has been earmarked for the dukedom in the future.

The royal author wrote: “Sensitive to the fact that nine-year-old Prince George’s future is already mapped out, Charles has been careful to reserve one of the grandest titles for Princess Charlotte – currently called Lottie by her mother and Mignonette (French for cute little thing) by her father.

“Although the King has made his brother Edward the new Duke of Edinburgh, the title is only for life. After Edward dies, Charles has made it clear Charlotte (now aged seven) should become Duchess of Edinburgh.”

The King bestowed the Edinburgh Dukedom on his youngest brother Edward last month to mark his 59th birthday, making his wife Sophie the Duchess of Edinburgh. 

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip promised the couple the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh titles on their wedding day in June 1999. 

The dukedom has historically been hereditary but the King made the decision to end this, meaning it will revert to the Crown upon his death rather than passing to their son James, Earl of Wessex.
