Re: Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein

Did he (as the husband of Queen Victoria's third daughter, Princess Helena) also receive the qualification of Royal Highness? Obviously it would not have been recognized in his native land. Also, like Prince Henry of Battenberg, he never received a BRITISH royal title.
Obviously? Again, why wouldn’t the British style be recognized in Germany? It was perfectly legal and valid and not recognizing it would have been an affront to the reigning British sovereign. It just may not have affected his actual rank in Germany.
How about the other way around? Are foreign noble titles automatically recognized in the UK?
