Prince Edward received the Duke of Edinburgh title as an honor from King Charles on his 59th birthday, which he will hold for his lifetime.
The Duke of Edinburgh title was previously held by Prince Philip, who was awarded the title in 1947 upon his marriage to Princess Elizabeth.
The new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh intend to continue the late Prince Philip's legacy of promoting opportunities for young people from all backgrounds.
Prince Edward was made Earl of Wessex when he married Sophie Rhys-Jones in 1999 and was granted the additional title of Earl of Forfar by Queen Elizabeth II in 2019.
The Dukedom of Edinburgh has been created four times in the past for members of the Royal Family, including Prince Frederick, Prince William, Prince Alfred, and Prince Philip.
