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!!!!)
