Re: Lady Louise and Viscount Severn
Prince Edward is also Earl of Forfar, so there are at least two possibilities plus remaining Viscount Severn. Itís happened numerous times, e.g., the Dukes of Fife (which had the subsidiary title of McDuff but eventually the heirs inherited the more senior earldom of Southesk) and the Earls Mountbatten of Burma (courtesy title Romsey until the elder substantive title of Baron Brabourne was inherited by the 2d Countessí husband).
