What an interesting development. Glad for Edward to be able to have a Scottish peerage of his own as he waits for the re-creation of the Duchy of Edinburgh (long health to the current Duke!). Do you think all his earldoms will be folded under the new creation of the Duchy of Edinburgh? Wonder what the exact technicalities are... Thanks as always for sharing Marlene! :)

Edward has to wait for 2 things -- death of his father and the succession of his brother because if Philip dies before the queen Charles will inherit the current dukedom and will hold it until he becomes king when it reverts to the Crown

Safe to say that this kind of rectified that he has no Scottish title to use as opposed to the other members who get Royal dukedoms accompanied by scottish earldoms?

Both Earldoms are still under the Kingdom of United Kingdom. Only difference is location of title.

Malta -- it is peerage of the United Kingdom, not kingdom of the United Kingdom
