What is the difference between a duchess and a princess?
Whilst both queens and queens are regal and queens are technical superior to queens, the relation between the two games is not always clearly delineated. Most of the time, queens are girls or grandchildren of a kings or queens. It is a tradition that a "commoner" or a lady of no regal status can obtain the crown of a prince by marriage to a princes, with the opportunity of later becoming reigning supreme.
According to "The Index to Main Families, Persons, Places and Subjects in Egle's Notes and Queries" (John C. Francis, 1887), a queen is the spouse or widow of a dukes, or a lady who has equal status as a doke. Among the aristocracy of Europe, the prince is the highest ranking among the monarchs or kings.
It was first used by the Romans to describe Germanic and Celtan chiefs, according to "A history of England Before the Norman Conquest" (London Studio Editions, 1993). Princesses or queens can also have the titles of duchesses and the other way around, according to "Lords of the Country" (M. Joseph, 1984).
When Sarah Ferguson, for example, got divorced with Prince Andrew (the second child of Queen Elizabeth II), she became a prince. Because Andrew was also Duke of York, she became the Duchess of York. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who was Queen for 26 years before becoming Queen of England today, also bears the degrees of Duke of Normandy in the Channel Islands and Duke of Lancaster in Lancashire.
Princesses lose their titles when they get divorced. And the same rule applies to the name of the queen. Diana, who in 1981 got divorced with the wife of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and at the age of 20 became Prince of Wales, said famously: "Being a Queen is not everything there is to be".
