Why princess Charles was named "princess Diana" and not all the racist troyalists claim that princess Megan's actual title is princess Henry?

Is that because you are a little bit racists and you have a small problem with her skin colour?

    A Princess who is born to the title, such as Princess Anne, may be referred to as Princess+First name.

    A lady who marries a Prince, such as the Duchess of Cambridge, may be referred to as Princess+Husband's first name if no other titles are given.

    Thus, Meghan's titles are the feminine equivalent of Harry's substantive titles: Duke (Duchess) of Sussex, Earl (Countess) of Dumbarton and Baron (Baroness) Kilkeel.

    Megan is not a Princess, how can we be racist? We don't have any say in the matter. Learn to speak English before you ask questions of the British people.

    The ignorant media and unknowing people who all had no idea about how titles work are the ones who called The Princess of Wales, "Princess Diana."

    People who know how titles work know that:

    1. Diana was properly "The Princess of Wales," "Diana, Princess of Wales," or "Princess Charles." She used the highest ranking title, Princess of Wales, the most.

    2. Diana was "Princess Charles" because she assumed her status through marriage. It is only a female born or bestowed a princess in her own right who uses the title with her own given name. Diana assumed her status through marriage so proper titling means that she would be identified by her husband's given name whenever the title "Princess" was used with a first, or given name.

    Examples are :

    Anne, the Princess Royal is properly titled Princess Anne since she was born a princess in her own right. Catherine, who assumes her status through marriage would be called "Princess William" if the title of princess was used with a given name.

    3. Intelligent people who are able to follow rules of protocol then apply them to Meghan who is Duchess of Sussex, Countess of Dumbarton, Baroness Kilkeel, the Princess Henry since her status is through marriage. Race has nothing to do with title protocols.

    4. Intentional misspellings, ("troyalists), and poor capitalization of words points to the true intent of the posting since the asker was already aware of the title protocol, being a longtime poster in these threads.

    Princess Henry is her title, Kate is Princess William that is the way it works.

    Either people are deliberately trolling, or they have no idea about the general titles in use in the British royal family.

    There is no real point in asking that sort of question. Just enjoy the trolls and the ignorance!

    Note that Megan is a duchess, not a princess.

    'Princess Diana' was an unofficial style, that got used by the general public as though a title.

    Her titles during marriage were 'HRH The Princess Charles, Princess of Wales, Countess of Chester, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Carrick, Baroness of Renfrew, Lady of the Isles and Princess and Great Stewardess of Scotland', after divorce 'Diana, Princess of Wales'

    The Duchess of Sussex’s formal full titles and styles includes Princess Henry, because that is the legal first name of her husband even though we know him by the moniker 'Harry'

    Obviously you don't understand how titles work. Not surprising as you can't even spell Meghan.

    Diana wasn't officially or correctly referred to as Princess Diana, as she wasn't a princess in her own right - the daughter of a king or queen. She was the Princess of Wales because she was married to the Prince of Wales. Meghan is a princess (again, not in her own right) because she is married to a prince, but they are known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. And there's nothing in the slightest bit "racist" in all this - it's the way titles work. It's the newspapers that got it wrong with Diana.

    Diana wasn't princess Diana she was Diana princess of Wales or princess Charles as she too just like Megan married into the family. Much of the press incorrectly called Diana "Princess Diana." Megan isn't princess Megan and it's factually correct to state that.
