I've always liked the idea that there is a right way to do arranged marriages. And so I really appreciated this.“It wasn’t arranged the way you think. Charlie decided that he was ready to marry, that he wanted to marry someone who knew and understood the demands of his life, and he wanted to marry a friend, someone he enjoyed being with. Daisy checked all the boxes, and Charlie checked all of hers as well."
This is a very evocative sentence!The Times reported the funeral under the heading “The Death of a Good Man”, and wrote “Who knows when we are again to see such a selflessly good man who made the world his canvas and kindness his brush.”
I feel the same way, so I'm so glad you like it!The update was fabulous! I especially liked:

Thank you!This is a very evocative sentence!
Thank you! You are correct, Edmund is the father of little CharlotteWonderful writing. It seems to me Charles’ uncle is a childless Prince of Wales, hence his line inheriting, with maybe the same being true of Charlie’s brother/nieces and nephews (as it seems Edmund is the father of little Charlotte of York from previous excerpts)
You've got it!So, guess is ...
Charlotte I, m. Leopold, Duke of Kendall, r. 1830 to 1880
-- 1) George V, m. Sophie of Wurttemburg, r. 1880 to pre 1896
a) William IV, m. Dagmar of Denmark, r. c. 1896 to XXXX,-- 1) George VI, b. 1871ish, r. pre. 1929a) Edward VII, m. Queen Anne, b. 1905, r. post 1929 to 1965-- 1) William V, m. Queen Alexandra, b. 1931, r. 1965 to Presenta) Edward, Prince of Wales, b. pre. 1961b) Charles, Duke of York, b. 1961, d. 2005, m. Margaret Child Villiers-- 1) Sophia of York, b. 1989-- 2) Edmund, Duke of York, b. 1991a) Charlotte of York, b. 2021-- 2) Alfred, Duke or Gloucestera) Isabellab) Amaliac) Frederica
Charles' parents in 1961 are the Duke and Duchess of York, the Prince and Princess of Wales are stated as separate individuals. Thus, at the point he is born, it is possible that George VI is still alive, Edward VII is Prince of Wales and William V is Duke of York.
Edward VII may have no male siblings, so the Dukedom of York is given to his eldest son.
By the time of Charles wedding in 1986, his mother is Queen, which matches with William V becoming King in 1965ish, and also explains how his brother is referred to as the Prince of Wales
“The Baptism of the second son of The Duke and Duchess of York took place at 10.00 a.m. this morning at St George's Church in Esher, Surrey by the Archbishop of York. He received the names Charles Leopold George.... His godparents were the Princess of Wales..."
So what happened with the 1961 Prince of Wales?The groom was supported by his brother Edward, The Prince of Wales.
This ties in with:“Edmund William Frederick, the Duke of York, was born at 9:21 a.m. on October 3, 1990..."
What happened with Charles's older brother Edward, The Prince of Wales, Charlotte's granduncle? She is is sure to succeed only if Edward is certain to have no eligible descendants.January 7, 2021:
Long live the future Queen! It's a girl for the Duke and Duchess of York! Thanks to the Law of Succession of 1995, this little lass shall one day take the top spot in the monarchy, regardless of any brothers who may follow. She is the first child of the Duke and Duchess, who married in 2018.
But unless he is permanently infertile, his line is not necessarily extinct. He's over 60, and his wife is presumably well over 50, but...The Prince of Wales is married but childless - that will be covered in another post eventually.
The 1961 Prince of Wales was Charles' father, who inherited the throne as William V in 1965.So what happened with the 1961 Prince of Wales?
My bad, went back and re-read this and realized I had gotten my times screwed up - I went back and fixed the post so it should make more sense now.And why did the older brother not inherit the Dukedom? Which would merge with the Crown at his accession, as with previous Dukes of York who succeeded.

Considering that he is over sixty, as is his wife, and they have no children and are in good health, it is generally accepted by the public that Edmund and Charlotte will eventually inherit.But unless he is permanently infertile, his line is not necessarily extinct. He's over 60, and his wife is presumably well over 50, but...
She might die, and he might remarry and beget a child. Until that possibility is absolutely foreclosed, Charlotte's succession remains tentative.
The Law of Succession of 1995 is similar to the OTL law and only applies to children born after it's passing.Who will succeed Charles? Sophia or Edmund? OTL the succession law was only changed in 2011 and it wasn’t retroactive. By that principle Edmund would succeed Charles

Take your time and thank you for your serviceHey guys. I know it feels like this is the post I make the most often and I'm sorry.
This thread is not dead. I, however, am mentally lol. I'm an RN in a high covid area that's desperately understaffed, so unfortunately I don't have a ton of energy to sit down and do the research and write this the way I want to write it.
There is a post, a big one, coming eventually. I might manage some tidbits between now and then. Just wanted to let everyone know what's going on.
