Pompous?[edit]

How pompous is the current heading of this article's, Princess Louise, Princess Royal and Duchess of Fife! 217.140.193.123 8 July 2005 17:09 (UTC)

Not really pompous as those were her titles. (jayboy2005)

Why is this article titled "Louise, Princess Royal" when the succeeding Princess Royal's article is title "Mary, Princess Royal and Countess of Harwood"??? Make up your mind its either this one should be changed to "Louise, Princess Royal and Duchess of Fife" or the other should be changed to "Mary, Princess Royal" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.238.181.119 (talk) 18:58, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Except that the subject of this article was the only Princess Royal called Louise and there were two called Mary. The "Countess of Harewood" is there as disambiguation (though I think their dates of birth and death would be better). Opera hat (talk) 04:27, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Why isn't the article just Louise, Princess Royal? She has been the only Princess Royal with that name - just see Charlotte, Princess Royal and Victoria, Princess Royal. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.154.135.138 (talk) 20:21, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

She was very commonly known as the Duchess of Fife, so this is why the article is where it is. PeterSymonds | talk 15:32, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Unclear[edit]

Maybe I'm a little dense today, but why is there a title change on 22 January 1901 from Her Royal Highness Princess Louise to Her Royal Highness THE Princess Louise? I assume the date corresponds to Queen Victoria's death, but am I missing something else? Mapjc 02:44, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

The importance of that date here is not that Victoria died, but rather than Louise's father ascended the throne as Edward VII, so she became a child of the sovereign, and therefore "HRH The Prince/ss" DBD 11:31, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Use of the title Duchess of Fife[edit]

I've just done a search of the London Gazette and after her creation as Princess Royal in 1905 she is only referred to by that title and not as Duchess of Fife. (The sole exception is the account of the 1911 coronation where her status as a peeress as well as a Princess is mentioned.) I'm amending the "styles and titles" section accordingly.
