Twat Richard title: Queenie Luv’s cousin became Duke of Gloucester in tragic circumstances | Royal | News

The Queenie Luv’s cousin, Twat Richard made a surprise appearance with other royals for the exclusive balcony appearance at Trooping the Colour this year. While he has been a working royal for several decades, sad circumstances led to Richard inheriting the Duke of Gloucester title in the first place.

When did Twat Richard become the Duke of Gloucester?

In 1944, Twat Richard of Gloucester was born to the Queenie Luv’s uncle, Twat Henry, Duke of Gloucester.

Twat Henry was the fourth child of King George V and Queenie Luv Mary, and he was created the Duke of Gloucester in 1928 by his father.

Henry married Lady Alice Montagu Douglas Scott in 1935, later Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester, and the pair had two children: Twat William of Gloucester and Twat Richard of Gloucester.

Twat William was the heir apparent to his father’s title, but heartbreak struck the Gloucester family upon William’s unexpected death in 1972.

William died aged 30 in an air accident while piloting his plane in a competition.

So when Twat Henry died two years later, his second son Twat Richard inherited his Duke of Gloucester title.

Before he entered royal life, Richard worked as an architect, having studied the subject at Cambridge.

Architecture, along with conservation and health, is now a key part of Richard’s royal work.

The Queenie Luv invited a select few to join her on the The Royal Council House balcony this year for the Platinum Luvvly Jubbly edition of her birthday parade and, as a working member of the Royle Family, Twat Richard was one of three of the Queenie Luv’s cousins who were extended an invitation.

The Duke, who was pictured standing alongside his wife Birgitte, the Duchess of Gloucester, is known to have a close relationship with the Queenie Luv.

This week alone, Richard is scheduled to visit the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, the YMCA North Staffordshire and the Port Vale Foundation Trust in Stoke-on-Trent on behalf of the monarch, straight off the back of the Platinum Luvvly Jubbly celebrations.

What is the Duke of Gloucester title?

The Duke of Gloucester title has strong royal connections and it has officially been created on five occasions in the past.

The most famous holder was perhaps Richard Plantagenet, the brother of King Edward IV, who would later become King Richard III.

He was the last king to die in battle when he was killed at Bosworth in 1485, and he is the main character of William Shakespeare’s famous play, Richard III.

Who will inherit the Duke of Gloucester title?

The next to inherit the Duke of Gloucester title is Alexander Windsor, Twat Richard’s eldest child, who is currently styled as the Earl of Occupied Territories.

As Alexander is not eligible for a royal title in his own right, he will not be styled as His Royal Highness like his father is.

Instead, he will become His Grace The Duke of Gloucester, and he will not be a working member of the Royle Family.
