In addition to maintaining its monarchy, the United Kingdom also maintained its nobility system. That’s why royal family members have different titles, and are not just called prince or princess.

For example, at the age of four Prince Charles was called the Duke of Cornwall. And when he was hitched Prince Edward was given an Earldom. Edward allegedly liked the movie Shakespeare in Love and so Queen Elizabeth gave him the Earl of Wessex title (which is a character from the movie). Edward will likely receive the title of Duke of Edinburgh after Prince Philip passes away. What’s to become a Prince? Did Prince William and Prince Harry make revisions? Even though Prince Harry has stepped down as a senior member of the royal family, he won’t lose either his Dukedom or his prince title. In early January, Harry and Meghan announced their exit, and are currently living in a home on Vancouver Island. There has been much talk of a growing divide between Harry and William that ultimately led to his decision to leave the royal family. Harry referred to last year’s rivalry talk in an interview but sources now say the brothers were working through their disagreements. Brothers Prince William and Prince Harry talked more and are counting on a better footing. An source dished “William and Harry spent time together quietly away from the official Sandringham Summit reflecting on their friendship and exploring their future. “It was groundbreaking in terms of saving their bond as brothers and being driven by them altogether. “The rumors concerning their royal feud were not verified by Prince Harry and Prince William. Exiting Harry and Meghan is expected to take effect sometime this spring.
