n 2009066904 is also incorrectly formulated. The British Library attempted to update this NAR for Kate Middleton after her marriage, but our update was lost when it was overtaken by the incorrect version now on the file. We're in the process of correcting it. I hadn't spotted the error for Prince William.

Hello Ryan,
You are correct in your assessment - LC will fix this NAR and several others that are incorrectly formulated (e.g., n  80003836).  Thank you for your message.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Prince William's authority record

Hi PCC List,

I just saw that Prince William's authority record was revised to reflect his new title and I'm not sure that the 1xx is correctly formulated. It is now:

**100 1   Cambridge, William, $c Prince, Duke of, $d 1982-

But given that he the grandchild of the monarch, shouldn't rule 22.16A4 apply, and the 1xx be:

**100 0   William, $c Prince, Duke of Cambridge, $d 1982-

Similar to how Prince Andrew is entered under given name:

**Andrew, $c Prince, Duke of York, $d 1960-

I freely admit that the rules for nobility/royalty confuse me so I could be all wrong. Anyhow, what do you all think?
