One qwuestin regarding the second duchess. She was always styld Princess Arthur of Conmnaught but why was she not syled as Duchess of Fife like it is done for other members of the royal Family who hold a peerage on their own.
Members of the Royal Family have precedence over peers of the realm; the precedence of her husband was higher than her own and therefore she rose to his precedence upon marriage. I suppose that is why she was styled as such. It still would have been nice for her to have been styled HRH the Duchess of Fife, in my opinion.
