image description[edit]

the description for Image:Pss Eliz.jpg is "Princess of England" but there are two girls in the image. Which is she? Kingturtle (talk) 19:50, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

She is in fact a he, :) And he's Henry Stuart, Duke of Gloucester, the youngest of Charles I's sons. The two were extremely close in age, and to each other, and they shared their exile together. I'll pop a note into the description. PeterSymonds (talk) 20:15, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Princess?[edit]

I disagree with the current title of the article. It's common knowledge that [younger] daughters of English monarchs were not automatically or traditionally called a prince or princess. This practice was established in 1714 by King George I. It's more likely that she was styled [The] Lady Elizabeth. Therefore I suggest Elizabeth of England and Scotland, or Elizabeth Stuart (since her aunt is called Elizabeth of Bohemia anyway). Surtsicna (talk) 10:21, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

However, the conventions currently prescribe "Princess X of Y", so this page ought to be at Princess Elizabeth of England, at least until such time as the conventions are successfully challenged/amended. That is the course of action I recommend. ✝DBD 16:31, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

== Possible typo == "The plaque marking the sculpture reads: "To the memory of The Princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Charles I, who died at Carisbrooke Castle on September 8, 1630.." Is this a typo or did Marochetti really plough up?212.226.72.99 (talk) 22:47, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Title change unnecessary[edit]

What's the point in renaming this article with the very unwieldy title? It should be moved back to Elizabeth of England or Princess Elizabeth of England. --Bookworm857158367 (talk) 03:09, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

She was not "Princess Elizabeth of England", and Elizabeth of England is too ambiguous. Surtsicna (talk) 10:11, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
