I do agree with you! Iím sure in social situations these titles are recognized.
Thanks for yr posts.
However I find it difficult that the Queen will not acknowledge the Marquess of Douro or Baron Rotschild as such (to refer to the more important of the list) if she meets them at, let's say, Ascot .
This might shed more light on the subject. https://www.heraldica.org/topics/britain/foreigntitles.htm
it was established by the Foreign Office in 1930 that foreign titles are no longer legal in the UK.
The Dukes of Wellington hold portuguese, spanish and dutch titles ?
Duke of Victoria, Marquess of Torres Vedras, Marquess of Douro, Earl of Vimeiro, Duke of Ciudad Rodrigo and Prince of Waterloo.
Aren't these titles recognized in the UK ?
