All of Philip's peerages have been inherited by Prince Charles in accordance with the peerages remainder. |
When Charles becomes king, he will create Edward Duke of Edinburgh. This was announced at the time of Edward's marriage, but the media paraphrased the agreement and the media's "truth" since that day has been that Edward would inherit.
The new creation of the peerage means that Edward will be the 1st Duke of Edinburgh of the whatever-year creation, and when his son James inherits the title, James will be the second duke.
