First of all, is it possible for a person to hold two peerages simultaneously?
Does this mean that Charles also succeeded as the 4th earl of Sunderland?
As such, parliamentary action was once again required to allow the inheritance to pass to and through females.
No, that did not happen. The King created a new Dukedom of Fife (and Earldom of Macduff).
He died in 1992, whereupon James would have been in a position to hold two peerages. Is this allowed under British law?
James, 3rd Duke of Fife, succeeded as 12th Earl of Southesk.
Or perhaps one is talking here of courtesy titles?
The eldest son of the Duke of Fife is called Earl of Macduff (the secondary title that was created together with the new dukedom).
