Discussion about royal and noble titles in the UK

Anonymous asked: How do titles transfer? For example George VI was previously Duke of York and then Andrew became Duke of York, does this mean when William and Kate have children the titles will shift? I know Andrew was born after the King had passed but do titles correspond with how close a person is to the thrown?

If William were to die before becoming King than George would become the Duke of Cambridge.  However if he becomes King than the title will ‘merge with the crown’ effectively meaning that it will cease to exist
