Re: The Prince and Princess of Wales
George IV was the official record holder up until now having been created Prince of Wales just a week after his birth (although it is not clear when exactly Edward VI was invested with the title). William certainly beats the record!
That was quick! When Edward VII became King, it took almost a year before his son George (later George V) was created Prince of Wales. When George V became King, it took a month and a half before his son Edward, known within the family as David (later Edward VIII, and then the Duke of Windsor) received the title, and in Charles’s case, he had been the heir apparent for six years before he was created Prince of Wales.
