So that is why i used the Canadian example HM is style HM the Queen of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland as well as Queen of Canada. So were Willem I, II and III all styled as HM the King of the Netherlands, Grand Duke of Luxembourg and their wives where HM the Queen of the Netherlands, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg. All other members of the Royal family were however never styled as prince or princess of Luxembourg. The heir was styled HRH the Prince of Orange like the Prince of Wales in Canada and other members of the family were styled HRH prince(ss) [firstname] as was the case with the late princess Margaret, princess Anne before she was appointed Princess Royal, prince Andrew before he became duke of York and prince Edward before he became earl of Wessex.
Is Charles officially styled as HRH the crown prince of Canada? Or Anne as HRH princess Anne of Canada?
No, but nor is he officially styled HRH the Crown Prince of the United Kingdom; likewise Anne is not styled HRH Princess Anne of the United Kingdom.
Charlesí position is that of a crown prince of Canada (likewise of the United Kingdom) even if that is not his style. None of HMís children or princely descendants use a national territorial designation in any of her realms.
