John Bradburne

The first British saint since the 16th century? Ex-public schoolboy known as 'God's vagabond' who fought in WW2 and cared for lepers in Zimbabwe before he was EXECUTED by Mugabe could finally be recognised

John Bradburne is set to become the first British saint in more than 400 years
He was killed during missionary work in Zimbabwe, then Rhodesia, in 1979
Before he died, he said that he had only three wishes — to help lepers, die a martyr and be buried in a habit of the Franciscan order

The Duke of Sussex@Hanover

The Duke of Sussex is a substantive title, one of several royal dukedoms in the United Kingdom. As used at the English and British courts, it takes its name from the county of Sussex in England.
The dukedom was first conferred on 24 November 1801 upon Prince Augustus Frederick,[2] the sixth son of King George III. He was made Baron Arklow and Earl of Inverness, at the same time, also in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. The title became extinct upon Prince Augustus Frederick's death in 1843, as although he had surviving male issue, his marriage to his sons' mother, Lady Augusta Murray, had been annulled for lack of royal permission under the Royal Marriages Act 1772, rendering the sons illegitimate and unable to inherit the ducal title.

The title was next granted to Prince Harry on the morning of his wedding to Meghan Markle, 19 May 2018. Prince Harry was granted the subsidiary titles Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel at the same time.
