Принц Гарри и Меган Маркл получат новые титулы. «Пошли на понижение»

Лето — пора отпусков даже для королевской семьи. В августе королева Великобритании по традиции покидает Букингемский дворец и отправляется в шотландский замок Балморал, в котором, скорее всего, пробудет до конца сентября.

В ближайшее время проведать Елизавету II и принца Филиппа приедут герцоги Сассекские, однако уже с новым титулом. Как только супруги пересекут границу Шотландии, их будут величать графом и графиней Дамбартон.

Иметь региональные титулы в разных частях страны для представителей королевской семьи абсолютно нормально. Например, герцогов Кембриджских в Шотландии называют графом и графиней Стратерн, а в Северной Ирландии — бароном и леди Каррикфергус.

Шотландский титул принца Чарльза — герцог Ротсей, а его жена, соответственно, герцогиня Ротсей. Что интересно, этот титул принадлежал наследнику шотландского престола до того, как две монаршие семьи объединились в начале 1600-х годов.

Региональные титулы могут считаться главными в зависимости от того, в какой регион приехали представители королевской семьи.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

Принц Гарри будет третьим графом Дамбартона. В иерархической системе графы стоят после герцогов и маркизов, поэтому в прессе шутят, что Гарри и Меган временно «пойдут на понижение». Как только они вернутся в Англию, их снова будут величать герцогами Сассекскими.

Tonight, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the first of a two game series of the Major League Baseball #LondonSeries, in support of @WeAreInvictusGames. Tonight’s highly anticipated game between the #Yankees and #RedSox took place at London stadium, Olympic Park. The @WeAreInvictusGames, of which His Royal Highness is Founding Patron, has been selected as charity partner for the @MLB 2019 series. The Invictus Games Foundation is the international charity that oversees the development of the Invictus Games, an international adaptive multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed service personnel and veterans participate. It celebrates the power of sport in recovery and how it can help, physically or psychologically, those suffering from injuries or illness. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’ — it embodies the fighting spirit of the competitors. As part of the partnership, the Invictus Games Foundation have a team participating in London’s #Softball60, the social softball series built for the city and targeted to introduce the sport to new audiences and demonstrate that it is an inclusive sport. On this #ArmedForcesDay, tonight’s event was also a chance for Their Royal Highnesses to shine a light on the men and women here in the UK and around the world who have sacrificed so much for their country.

Ну а для любителей теории о вражде между герцогами Сассекскими и герцогами Кембриджскими у нас тоже есть новость. Журналист и писатель Роберт Джобсон, автор книги «Уильям и Кейт. Love Story», заявил, что Уильям и Кейт специально отложили поездку в Шотландию, чтобы не встречатся там с Гарри и Меган.

Эксперт уверен, что новым поводом для разногласий стали слова герцога Сассекского о том, что они с супругой не собираются заводить больше двух детей, так как не хотят способствовать перенаселению планеты.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️

По мнению Джобсона, это могло сильно оскорбить принца Уильяма и Кейт Миддлтон — родителей трех прекрасных детишек.

Это, конечно, всего лишь предположения, которые не подтверждаются никакими фактами. О том, что происходит между герцогами, знают только они (ну и, возможно, королевские корги, но эти точно никому не разболтают).
