King Charles III

prefers Princess Charlotte – is there now a dispute with Prince Edward?

King Charles III

plans to inherit the title of Duchess of Edinburgh from his granddaughter Charlotte in due course, a source told the Daily Express.

"Discussions are ongoing but the preferred outcome for the King is that this title should go to Princess Charlotte.

It would be an appropriate way to commemorate the Queen,"

the source said.

From her marriage in 1947 until her accession to the throne in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II bore the title Duchess of Edinburgh.

But could King Charles III's plan

cause bad blood between him and his brother Edward?

Royal expert Richard Eden, who comments on what is happening in the royal family in his newsletter "Palace Confidential" for the British newspaper Daily Mail, sees no reason for a rift in the award of the title.

"The view the king has given me is that Edward has always accepted this stripped-down form of monarchy, which is why his children didn't become prince and princess," Eden said.

In fact, at the request of her parents, Edward's daughter Louise (19) only bears the courtesy title Lady, her younger brother James the title Viscount.
