Because he is a "Consort" of the monarch and men do not take titles from their wives
King George VI was crowed king on December 11 1936. He was precededby Edward VIII and succeeded by Elizabeth II.
George VI was Prince Albert, second in line to the throne, while his father George V was alive. When George V died, his first born, the Prince of Wales, became King Edward VII…I. King Edward VIII abdicated the throne in order to marry the twice divorced American, Wallace Simpson. Prince Albert then became King George VI.
This is because a king can only be a hereditary king (through their family) and cannot marry into the Royal Family and become King, instead they are given the title Prince. …However, a queen can be both hereditary and marry into the Royal Family and still become Queen. As Queen Elizabeth II received the throne from her father she is a hereditary queen, this means that Prince Philip married into the Royal Family and is therefore only a prince. When (if) Prince William becomes King after his father Prince Charles, he will be King William V and his wife will become Queen Catherine even though she was not born a member of the Royal Family PS. I didn't use Prince Charles and Camilla as an example as Charles has decided that Camilla will not become Queen due to the memory of Princess Diana who would have almost certainly become Queen.
Because he was not heir to the throne of England-his wife was. He is a descendant of Queen Victoria's though and because of this he himself is about 455 on the list of royalty… in case something happens to the the royal family
Yes, King George VI smoked and in the end this caused lung cancer.
Yes he did. The King's Speech is a true story
King George took over the throne in 1936.
Yes, he was.
Why did king george VI brother have to abdicate Hemarried a divorced woman the same as Prince Charles has. How can Prince Charles ever be King?
It is some years later, and standards have been relaxed.
It was planned for May 10, 1937 but actually took place May 12, 1937.
