Very true

Though it is also the first time (ever?) that a Prince if Wales has had two grown sons married with children.

Well under the 1917 LP, yes, Charles is the first. As for the general statement, no - Edward VII had adult children and grandchildren as PoW. The next PoW, later George V, his children were on the just shy of adulthood when he ascended the throne (they would marry late by the standards of the day, for the most part).

Iím looking only at sons.  Edward VII has only one son married with children as his eldest died if Spainish Flu and his youngest at a day old.

What would happen if Charles passes away before the Queen then ? Would the Sussex children still become HRH as the monarch's nephews / nieces ?

Nope...not unless William issues LPs (according to the 1917 LPs).

Ahh, yes, she is indeed. But you see, they are keeping it rather subtle as not to overshadow the more important tasks of their work.

Ahh, the snarkiness is real. I love it.  Star for you both.

"they are keeping it rather subtle" HA, that's the best line I've read all day.   Laughing

^^^ I think it is preferable for the Sussex child to just roll with the flow established by the existing Letters Patent.  I think that to issue special LP would ascribe to the child an importance he or she does not possess.  I say that mindful of the recent article about Harry's non-spare status.  The Cambridge children will be children of the monarch one day, and one of them will himself be monarch, and the same was so - in fact if not in legal fiction - of Princess Elizabeth's children.  This is not the case with the Sussex children since the current heir's heir has an heir of his own and that heir's heir's heir has two spares waiting in the wings so there is no need at all to treat Harry's children as special enough to warrant the issuing of special LP to grant them a rank they will attain one day anyway on the accession of their paternal grandfather. 

Completely agree.  Meghan and Harry are fools to expect otherwise. 

QEII is at an advanced age.  The kid will be HRH soon enough.  If they change it because Harry and Sparkles are being entitled douchebags, then that is a ridiculous shame.  Thumb down
