Charles III nevertheless transferred the title of Duke of Edinburgh to his younger brother Edward


Britain’s King Charles III has kept his word to his parents, Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Buckingham Palace has announced that the title of Duke of Edinburgh, which belonged to his father, goes to the king’s younger brother, Edward. On March 10, he turned 59, so the new title was kind of a gift for him.

As a result, Edward’s son, Viscount Severn, James became the Duke of Wessex. This title was given to Edward by Elizabeth II in 1993, when he married Sophie Rhys-Jones. The late queen had a very tender relationship with her youngest son and daughter-in-law, with whom she shared an interest in military history. Sophie, respectively, will henceforth be called the Duchess of Edinburgh.

Buckingham Palace has already updated the official website with information on the latest changes in the titles of members of the British royal family.
