Prince William snub: How Queen offered title to DIFFERENT royal before giving it to Wills | Royal | News


That means the dukedom of Cambridge remained available and was granted to Prince William by the Queen in 2011.

Unlike William and Kate’s nuptials, Edward and Sophie made known their wish the wedding not be turned into a state occasion, a hint of why Edward declined a dukedom.

The couple have in later years also declined prince and princess titles for their children Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn so they can lead a more normal life.

Some constitutional scholars questioned why Edward had not been created a duke, as his brothers had before their weddings.
