A text duplication?[edit] - I think everything from:

A Crown Prince of a kingdom or an empire is usually the son of the existing ruler, or is always the heir to the throne once the existing ruler dies or abdicates.

A famous example would be Prince Charles, the heir to the throne in Britain.

is on the article already at Crown Prince, so I'm redirecting there. -- Someone else 04:24 8 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Prince of Cumberland[edit]

I read long ago, probably in a novel, that at one period the crown prince of Scotland had the title of Prince of Cumberland. Cumberland was transiently subject to the King of Scotland, and the title was a neat parallel to Prince of Wales, that being the land of the Cymru. J S Ayer 03:22, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Silly boy! It was in Shakespeare's play Macbeth. May well have been a fancy of Shakespeare's. J S Ayer 04:19, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Prince of Asturias[edit]

The article list the title of Prince of Asturias as one of those whose grant depends on the Sovereign's decision. However, this isn't actually true. The current Spanish Constitution, the one passed in 1978, establishes that the heir to the Throne (no matter whether heir apparent or presumptive) shall have the title of Prince of Asturias and those other of Montblanc, Viana, etc.

Therefore, I'm going to change the location of the mention of this title. Greetings, (talk) 10:43, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Crown Prince of Japan[edit]

I believe the Naruhito, Crown Prince of Japan is still an official title which would contradict this statement: "The term is now borne as a title only in the Scandinavian monarchies." Gerdemb (talk) 02:47, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Saudi Arabia?[edit]

Should not Saudi Arabia be included in the lead among countries where "Crown Prince" is considered a title? From reading lately after the death of Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud, it seems to be a formal title that must be granted by the King. —[AlanM1 (talk)]— 03:36, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Crown Prince - UK[edit]

I'm relatively sure that the Commonwealth recently voted to make it the eldest child, as opposed to eldest son. Not sure if this has been implemented at this time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:29, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

The wife of a crown prince...[edit]

I would suggest re-wording the intro sentence to say: "One can also become a crown prince/princess through marriage; for example, the wife of a crown prince is also titled crown princess."

Currently, the intro prominently says "the wife of a crown prince is also titled crown princess". I presume that would mean, these days, that "the husband of a crown princess is also titled crown prince" in countries where the heir apparent can be a woman. Perhaps someone from a country that has closer ties to royalty could advise if that's indeed the case.

Also, if it's a same-sex marriage (this may not have happened yet, at this level), I presume that it could also be that: "the husband of a crown prince is also titled crown prince". That could get confusing though: Which one is the actual heir apparent in that case? Is there a word to distinguish? It wouldn't be obvious from the wording (though neither is it between a married crown prince/princess anymore).

Hence my suggestion for re-wording this, assuming that what I'm proposing is accurate. I was hoping that someone in the know could say what's accurate (and either edit the page or let me know). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kevintreg (talkcontribs) 21:38, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
