The Windsors / Re: The status of Highness

So only the grandchildren of the Prince of Wales is a Highness?  If Princess Anne, Princess Royal was the Queen's and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh's only child as heiress presumtive what would her grandchildren be titled?  She wouldn't have been "Prince of Wales" so would they be: Lord/Lady ________?  Is this right?

This may sound stupid but how did the title of Duke of Fife pass from Alexandra, Princess Arthur of Connaught to Maud's son?  Shouldn't the dukedom have become extinct?

Are there any threads involving Charled Edward?  I haven't seen any.  I used the search feature like some of the moderators suggested in other threads but only the present Prince of Wales comes up. Does anybody have any pictures of him, I haven't seen any and I read on wilkipedia (not a reliable source, I know) that he was bullied by Arthur of Connaught to take Saxe-Couburg-Gotha? Does anybody know any details about him later in life?

Does anybody have more pictures of Maria Alexandrovna?  There seem to only be a few, especially later in life.  Pictures during Edward VII and George V's coronation?

Some more sad lives:

Catherine of Aragon, Queen of England (Dowager Princess of Wales)-
She was an Infanta of Aragon and Castille and Queen of England and then her husband practically left her to die so he could marry his mistress! 

Victoire of Saxe-Saeefield, Duchess of Kent and Strathem-
She was widowed TWICE while she was still young

Many, many Queens and Kigns lived tragic lives.  More than we can count.  Very tragic, tragic lives.

I am still having some trouble navigating this site and I didn't notice that this thread already existed.  Sorry for the duplication!

I am having some trouble with this site and I hope this actually works and somebody can read this!

Are there any phots of Queen Victoria's daughters-in-law together.  Also, does anybody know the dynamic between these great ladies. 

I hope I am not duplicating any other threads!

(I hope this belongs in this thread!)

This may sound like a stupid question but who is in charge of all the historial jewels of the Royal Family?  They must have a dedicated position to the jewels since there were/are so many.  I guess we will never be able to account for all the jewels because some were probably lost or given away with it being recorded.

Has anybody seen any pictures or heard any stories of Augusta, Grand Duchess of Mecklinberg-Strelitz.  I have heard that she had a loud personality and during Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee she said, "why is she thanking God in the street."  (In refrence to the blessing in front of St. Paul).  She seemed to be a fun person.
