1 - Princess Diana did have siblings.
2 - Her brother Charles is Earl Spencer, his son will be that after him.
3 - Prince Harry is the younger son - why would you presume he is going
to be the future King of England. Anticipating a nasty fate for
William, are you :-) ?
4 - OTOH, her sister Jane's children have no real rank as she married a
commoner. Jane herself only carries the courtesy title of Honourable.
Score one for your original point.
5 - Although Herself did say that Ingrey's father was a baron of some
Jacki in Canberra - behind as usual (and impatiently waiting to get her
hands on HH again - 8th in line at the library!!!!)
