Comments: The Princess Problem, or Why She's a Princess but Not Princess Kate

Being royal seems complicated.

Thank you for posting this! I've been looking for something similar, and it makes so much sense.

Two things are still bothering me:
1) Carrickfergus. Made-up name! Just plain goofy! Right?!
2) Wouldn't it more properly be spelt "Carwickfergus", or some other such similar? (I ask this question confident that, as a dyed-in-the-wool New Englander, I have a more than passing similarity with the obscurity of English spellings vs. pronunciations for names of both places and people.)

So - if Andrew remarries, would the new wife be called the Duchess of York (and Sarah loses the title)?

I'm speechless

Carrickfergus is an actual place in Northern Ireland and pronounced as it's spelt.
