Media report that the RF of Belgium is going to use again the titles of prince/ess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Duchess of Saxony. After WW I the use of these titles was discontinued, but not renounced.
As by the famous arrete royal of 12.11.2015 limites the titles prince/ss of Belgium to the children and grandchildren of the monarch/ heir/ess, it left a question mark how the great grandchildren will be titled.
Prince Amadeo's daughter is - as it is reported - is called Archduchess.
So the question is how offsprings of prince/ess of Belgium who are grandchildren of a monarch are titled and who do not have another title like the archducal titles?
Are the simple Mr/Mrs ...
So is Amadeo's daughter in Belgium rather a Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha?
I am wondering whether that is actually not that surprising of Article 4 of the arrete royal of 2015. This Articles states - if I understand this correctly - that the princes and princesses of direct descent of Leopopld I and who do not fall under the new rules as children /grandchildren of a monarch do carry the titles which comes by right with their ascent.
