Yes, they formally renounced, at least in Britain. https://www.heraldica.org/topics/britain/prince_highness_docs.htm#Battenbergs
We all know that the Princes of Battenberg (a morganatic branch of Hessen) renounced their titles and were given British peerages. But I wonder if it was a formal renunciation, or if they just stopped using their German titles (who, BTW, were abolished in Germany after the first world war).
Would it be possible (even though highly unlikely) that the Marquess of Milford Haven, to start using the title Prince of Battenberg?
