Prince George may give his future daughter the title of Princess of Wales. However, the future king won’t be able to give his heir the title of Duchess of Cornwall.

According to Express, the decision will entirely be up to Prince George when the time comes. With the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, royal girls will take their rightful place in the order of succession even if they are older than their male siblings.

For instance, Princess Charlotte is the first royal youngster to be placed before her younger brother, Prince Louis, in the order of succession even if she’s a girl. This is because the male preference primogeniture has already been abolished.

As such, if Prince George’s eldest child will be a girl, she could rightfully receive the title of Princess of Wales. In the past, the first-born children of the monarch have always been males. Prince Charles is the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II, and he received the Prince of Wales title.

Debrett’s Peerage expert Wendy Bosberry-Scott told the publication that the Princess of Wales is usually the spouse of the heir to the throne. This title is not passed down to a female line. But it may be given to the eldest child of the King if she’s a girl.

“Camilla is Princess of Wales, but only because she is married to Charles. Kate might become Princess of Wales – if Charles as King, bestowed William with the Prince of Wales title. The same applies to Prince George and any wife he might have,” she said.

And Bosberry-Scott added that if Prince George’s daughter will be given the Princess of Wales title, she will no longer inherit the Duchess of Cornwall title.

“This is a royal dukedom that traditionally is held by the eldest son of the reigning monarch, so will probably be passed to William and then George. The wife of the Duke is allowed to use the title but it’s not hers in her own right,” she said.
