 Duke
Four reigning European royal houses traditionally awarded (mainly) dukedoms to the sons and in some cases, the daughters, of their respective Sovereigns; others include at least one dukedom in a wider list of similarly granted principalities.
Rather, these special peerages are called "royal dukedoms" because they are held by a member of the royal family who is entitled to the style Royal Highness.
Under the November 20, 1917, Letters Patent of King George V, the titular dignity of Prince/Princess and the style Royal Highness are restricted to the sons of a Sovereign, the sons of a Sovereign's sons, and the eldest living son of the eldest son of a Prince of Wales.

Current royal dukes include HRH The Duke of Edinburgh (the Queen's husband), HRH The Duke of York (the Queen's second son), HRH The Duke of Gloucester (the Queen's first cousin), and HRH The Duke of Kent (also the Queen's first cousin).
