Princely titles !

At the moment I am in Wales.... and here, there are quite a few pubs called " The Prince Of Wales"....
which brought me round to casually wondering, why we, the English, feel it is necessary to have a Prince (and Princess) of Wales, yet do not have a Prince of Scotland, nor a Prince of Northern Ireland, ....
going further afield.... (as N.I. is a province of U.K.).... who is the Prince of the Channel Islands...... Prince of Gibraltar...... Prince of The Falklands  ? ? ? 
any others that we are missing out on?  Cheesy

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The Prince of Much Binding in the Marsh.
That'll be beyond the ken of some people.

Sorry shutter, just horning in on your thread.

There is a Prince Of Scotland. He's also the Prince of Wales.

Re: Princely titles !

Without looking on Google..... The Prince of Wales was a title given to appease the Welsh (I'm Welsh) or maybe to give a Prince a job, if you go back in time you'll find the King being the King of Scotland or some such (James was one wasn't he?) but no Welsh Kings of England.
Being Welsh and living in Cornwall though makes Charles my Prince and my Duke, at the same time, and eventually my King.
