Resolved Question: Concerning Earl of
So he has four kids from Margaret Messengers.
"The two older children were born out of wedlock. They were subsequently legitimated by the marriage of their parents and given the titles befitting children of a Viscount. Only her two younger children, legitimate from birth, fall within British peerage regulations, are heirs to the Harewood titles.
His elder son, Benjamin, is thus merely titled as "Hon.", whereas his younger bro, 1,5 year younger than him, is Viscount & will inherit the estate one day.
Why didn't the Earl do something about this and ask the queen, his aunt, to make an exception, since it's unfair for his elder son? I know this is THE rule, but Mountbatten could make a special remainder to make her daughter his heiress, although an earldom should be extinct or revert to a cousin if there's no male heir. It's against the rules, too.
Thinking how the elder son is thinking about it? What I mean by "unfair" is that the four of them were born to the same mother, so they are full siblings. Just because the father & mother decided to marry a bit later, the elder son lost his rights, and the girl wasn't even called "Hon." until later, tho' she's actually entitled to be called Lady.

Resolved Question: Does that mean
Because according to this paragraph from wikipedia....
In British law, a commoner is someone who is neither the Sovereign nor a peer. Therefore, any member of the Royal Family who is not a peer, such as Prince Harry of Wales or Anne, Princess Royal, is (technically) a commoner, as is any member of a peer's family, including someone who holds only a courtesy title, such as the Earl of Arundel and Surrey (eldest son of the Duke of Norfolk) or Lady Victoria Hervey (a daughter of the 6th Marquess of Bristol).
