Miks ei ole kuninganna abikaasa kuningas, vaid on hoopis prints?

Among monarchy titles, King is the highest and has the most authority, at least when monarchs had authority. That being said, a King can make his wife a Queen, which is a lower rung on the ladder, but a Queen cannot make a King, because that would give him more authority over the Queen, who is the successor to throne, when her husband is not. It all goes back to the days of class status and the policy of having all inherited by the first born male, royal or otherwise. That policy is still there, but at a much lesser degree. Things are changing, slowly, but changing.” (allikas on täiesti suvaline internetilehekülg)

Lisaks: “The same thing happens with lower ranks. If a man is created Lord Smith, his wife becomes Lady Smith. But if a woman is created Lady Smith in her own right, her husband remains Mr Smith.” (allikas on taaskord suvaline foorum)

Emale lühidalt: pöhimötteliselt on juba sajandite jooksul väljakujunenud, et Kuningas on körgem tiitel kui Kuninganna ja just seetöttu ei saa Kuninganna abikaasa tiitlit Kuningas, sest ta muutuks automaatselt nö körgemalseisvaks isikuks kui Kuninganna, kuivörd aga see abikaasa pole kuninglikust soost, siis ei saa sellisel lool lasta juhtuda. Lisaks kehtib sama “reegel” ka madalamate tiitlite puhul – kui Lord Smith abiellub, siis saab tema abikaasast Leedi Smith, kui aga Leedi abiellub, siis Leedi abikaasast Lordi ei saa.

Pöhimötteliselt on tegu sulaselge diskrimineerimisega :) Kaevake vöi kohtusse.
