On 21 August 1996, letters patent declared that former wives of British princes, other than widows who did not remarry, were not entitled to the style of Her Royal Highness. Sarah remains a member of the royal family, and is styled Sarah, Duchess of York

Only the Soveringn´s spouse, siblings, children and THEIR children are Royal Highgness.

The Duchess of Cambridge is not a princess in her own right. On certain occations she is titled "The Princess WIlliam", but usually "The DUchess of Cambridge. When Prince Charles is king, Prince WIllian will be "Prnce of Wales" and his wife "The Princess of Wales:


The  wife of H.R.H Prince Henry of Wales, is not  a princess in her own right, but has the spouse wersion of her spouse´s title. "H.R.H. The Duchess of Sussex / "The Princess Henry".


The children of Princess Anne.

"The Princess Royal" have no titles, because their father Mr. Mark Philips holds no title.


Prince Edward will eventually succeed to the title Duke of Edinburgh.

The Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, broke with royal tradition when he chose the title of Earl of Wessex upon his marriage in 1999. Buckingham Palace announced that the Earl of Wessex will be granted the dukedom of Edinburgh when the title reverts to The Crown (the title will only revert to The Crown on both the death of the current Duke of Edinburgh, and the succession of the Prince of Wales to the throne).


On 31 December 2012, letters patent were issued.

to extend a title and a style borne by members of the royal family to additional persons to be born, and this Notice appeared in the London Gazette:


The QUEEN has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 31 December 2012 to declare that all the children of the eldest son of The Prince of Wales should have and enjoy the style, title and attribute of Royal Highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names or with such other titles of honour.


Members and relatives of the British royal family.

historically represented the monarch in various places throughout the British Empire, sometimes for extended periods as viceroys, or for specific ceremonies or events. Today, they often perform ceremonial and social duties throughout the United Kingdom and abroad on behalf of the United Kingdom. Aside from the monarch, their only constitutional role in the affairs of government is to serve, if eligible and when appointed by letters patent, as a Counsellor of State, two or more of whom exercise the authority of the Crown (within stipulated limits) if the monarch is indisposed or abroad. In the other countries of the Commonwealth royalty do not serve as Counsellors of State, although they may perform ceremonial and social duties on behalf of individual states or the organisation.


The Queen, her children and grandchildren.

as well as all former sovereigns' children and grandchildren, hold places in the first sections of the official orders of precedence in England and Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Wives of the said enjoy their husbands' precedence, and husbands of princesses are unofficially but habitually placed with their wives as well. However, the Queen changed the private order of precedence in the royal family in favour of Princesses Anne and Alexandra, who henceforth take private precedence over the Duchess of Cornwall, who is otherwise the realm's highest ranking woman after the Queen herself. She did not alter the relative precedence of other born-princesses, such as the daughters of her younger sons.
