Re: Lady Louise and Viscount Severn
He could do either. I i9magfine Edward and Sophie will make that decision known when it happens.
You are correct to some extent. In 1999 prior to their wedding the Queen announced the Wessex title for Prince Edward. Interestingly in the announcement is also a bit relating to the Edinburgh title and that Prince Edward should be given the title in 'due course'.
The using of the HRH titles being the decision of of their children when they turn 18 came from Sophie herself in a interview she gave to the Sunday Times in June 2020.
If in fact a new Edinburgh dukedom is created for Prince Edward, will the Wessex title then be taken and used by Viscount Severn, or will he simply continue as Severn?
