She who pwns people with history

Princess of Wales is a British courtesy title held by the wife of the Prince of Wales since the first post-conquest Prince of Wales in 1301.

Although there have been considerably more than ten male heirs to the throne, there have been only ten Princesses of Wales. The majority of Princes of Wales married after acceding to the throne as King. A number of other Princes of Wales died too young to marry.

The second wife of the present Prince of Wales, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is the Princess of Wales by right, but does not use the title, out of respect for her husband’s first wife, the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The current Duchess of Cambridge is expected to be the next Princess of Wales.
