 prince consort - Article and Reference from OnPedia.com
It is also not fully clear what would happen to the prince consort's title in the event that he were to outlive his wife, as this seems to have rarely if ever occurred in the recorded annals of monarchy.
It was awarded to him in 1857 by his wife, Queen Victoria (reigned 1837-1901), in recognition of his close to co-regency status.
The female counterpart of the title, Princess Consort, has also never been used, as wives of British Kings have always been Queens.

 edward iii (play) - Article and Reference from OnPedia.com
Although some fringe scholars have argued that the play is entirely by Shakespeare, most mainstream scholars believe it to be an early collaborative work, in which Shakespeare wrote only a few scenes.
The plot of the play centers around the Countess of Salisbury (the wife of the Earl of Salisbury), beset by rampaging Scots, who is "rescued" by King Edward III, who vows to get her into his bed.
The play makes many gibes at Scotland and the Scots, a view which has led some critics to believe that it is this work which caused George Nicolson, Queen Elizabeth's agent in Edinburgh, to write in 1598 to William Cecil, Lord Burghley, protesting the way Scots were being portrayed on the London stage.

 alt.talk.royalty FAQ: British royalty and nobility
Since the niece, Princess Maria Beatrice of Sardinia (1792-1840), was domiciled in Sardinia, where her father was King, and her uncle the Duke of Modena, Francesco IV (1779-1846), was domiciled in Modena, and the marriage was valid there (Papal dispensation, etc.), the marriage is then valid in Britain.
Since the spouse of a member of the royal family is instantly in a special position, as the possible parent or ancestor of a future sovereign, it is indeed perfectly relevant for the Crown to have a say in whom a member of the royal family marries.
In the case of the royal family, Princess Margaret's decision not to marry Peter Townsend was not least because she was persuaded that as someone so close to the Throne she had a duty of obedience to royal tradition and to the teachings of the Church of England (as they then stood).
