So I do find it odd she wasn't a princess prior to her marriage and after her marriage she was a princess.
Where did her title of Princess come from? As written it sounds like she was a Princess of Denmark in her own right because according to the modern custom her English title would be Princess George of Denmark.
No, they used to be called Lady. Princess ___ came about in the 1500s or so (Henry VIII's older daughter, for example).
I believe king's daughters were always styled as Princesses of England.
So their brothers would have been styled as Princes.
And that's the problem I have with many English royals...there isn't anything in my history books to the styles and titles of English Royals. I guess one who need to research original written sources to find out exactly how they were referenced. Unfortunately I don't have access to those sources.
I can't find anything in my books or online at historical sites where he was called Prince. Nor can I find anything on how he was styled prior to the reign of Richard I. On Richardís accession in July 1189, John was made Count of Mortain a title that became his usual style during the reign.
