I was wondering why we are putting Kate Middleton and Prince William in this when NOTHING has been confirmed about the two EVER by any of the official palaces! Until this is for sure I am taking it down.. there is NO official source for this. -- Lady Meg (talk) 05:40, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Two articles ?[edit]

Why are they two articles with the same title (Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Cambridge) ? (talk) 11:41, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

They're the same article. Marquess of Cambridge is a dummy article whose content is one line: #REDIRECT [[Duke of Cambridge]]. —Tamfang (talk) 06:43, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Royal Dukedom[edit]

It seems odd that there is no distinction made here in Wikipedia between Dukedoms and Royal Dukedoms. As I recall, there are a number of Dukedoms traditionally reserved for royalty: Cornwall, York, Kent, Gloucester, the unfortunate Clarence, Cambridge, etc. etc. By the way, as of this morning, it is now official that William and Kate are the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

There's Royal Dukedoms in the United Kingdom. Hot Stop (c) 07:16, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
... which needs updating ... —Tamfang (talk) 08:51, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Edward, Duke of Cambridge[edit]

On the Earl of Wessex page it is alleged that he held the title for a brief time.

No it isn't. It is alleged that he was intended to have the Cambridge title. —Tamfang (talk) 06:46, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Dukes and Marquesses[edit]

It does seem odd that the dukes and marquesses of Cambridge are kept together in one article while the Earls of Cambridge have their own article. Some dukedoms keep their precussor titles in the same page, such as the Duke of Fife or Duke of Buckingham, while the Duke of Cornwall has its precussor title the Earl of Cornwall in a separate page. I suggest the dukes, marquesses and earls of Cambridge kept together in one article or each split into three separate articles. HLE (talk) 10:49, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

It does make sense to keep the marquessate here, since the only creation of that title was for a descendant of a Duke of Cambridge. —Tamfang (talk) 10:45, 15 June 2011 (UTC)


"Coincidentally, Prince William is the great-great-great-great grandson of Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, whose daughter Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge married Francis, Duke of Teck. Adelaide and Francis' daughter – Mary of Teck – became the queen consort of George V, mother of George VI, and the grandmother of Elizabeth II and her sister Princess Margaret."

The fact that Prince William, an heir to the throne of a hereditary monarchy, is descended from another member of that very same hereditary monarchy is hardly a coincidence. This entry is hard to follow and I'm not really sure what it adds to the article. --EcoChap (talk) 10:25, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Prince George Inheriting Titles[edit]

I'm not certain the section on "the only way" Prince George could inherit the titles is correct. For one thing, if the monarchy were to be abolished then it might also be that Royal Dukedoms and other Royal titles were abolished too. Also, no consideration is given to what would happen if the Duke of Cambridge were to renounce his claim to the throne or abdicate having succeeded. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oinky (talkcontribs) 14:47, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

The Duke can neither renounce his claim to the throne nor abdicate following accession without the Parliament passing a law that would make such renunciation/abdication legally valid. I agree, though, that the paragraph needs an edit. More precisely, it needs trimming. It's enough to state that George is heir apparent to the dukedom. Surtsicna (talk) 14:56, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
