Here's what I don't understand. All of a sudden, some American is the Duchess of Sussex. And he's the Duke. How does that happen? Sussex didn't already have a Duke, or was the previous Duke evicted and now living out of his car? (Hopefully it's a Rolls Royce or at least a Bentley). Or if Sussex didn't already have a Duke why does in need one now? And who decides these things? In the old days it was clear, if you wanted to be the Duke you had to be descended from the old Duke, or you had to slaughter the old Duke and his descendants. Raping and pillaging was involved. At the very least you had to have the old Duke declared a heretic.

Not quite. The King's brothers were usually automatically made dukes. So your brother could do any requisite slaughtering.
