Titles and styles[edit]

As a son of the sovereign, Arthur had the title of Prince and the style of Royal Highness from birth. The princely title had been used for sons of the sovereign since Tudor times[4] and was formalised by letters patent of 30 November 1917,[5] while the style of Royal Highness had been used since the Restoration[4] and was confirmed by letters patent of 3 February 1864.[6] Through his father, Prince Albert, he also bore the titles Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and Duke of Saxony until 17 July 1917, when King George V discontinued the use of German titles.[3]

On 24 May 1874, Prince Arthur was created Duke of Connaught and Strathearn and Earl of Sussex,[7] in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.[8] As a duke of the Blood Royal, he had the formal style of Most High, Most Mighty, and Illustrious Prince Arthur William Patrick Albert, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn and Earl of Sussex.[9]
