Who is named the Prince of Cumberland and heir to the throne in Macbeth?
Malcolm is the son of Duncan. He is named the prince of Cumberland, and after retaking the throne from Macbeth, he becomes the new king of Scotland
In Macbeth? King Duncan names his son Malcolm The Prince of Cumberland who is the heir apparent. After his murder, Malcolm flees so Macbeth is named to be King but later on in the play Malcolm, Duncan's son, becomes king.
Duncan's older son Malcolm. He is named Prince of Cumberland in Act I, Scene 5, Lines 44-45.
King Duncan names his son Malcolm The Prince of Cumberland who is the heir apparent. After his murder, Malcolm flees so Macbeth is named to be King but later on in the play Malcolm, Duncan's son, becomes king
The suggestion is that the title was like the Prince of Wales: it was the title of the heir apparent.
He had the most to gain, since Duncan had named him Prince of Cumberland and heir to the throne.
Malcolm's title is Prince of Cumberland. He is named Duncan's heir apparent. At the time, the eldest son was NOT automatically the next in line for the throne. Macbeth, as the most experienced and respected soldier, expects to be named, but Duncan passes him over for the feckless Malcolm.
"The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step on which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, for in my way it lies." The optimistic part of Macbeth which would let fortune crown him suffers a severe blow, and the part that thinks he will never be king unless he takes drastic action gets a boost.
"Then 'tis most like the sovereignty will fall on Macbeth." (Act II Scene 4) Ross doesn't exactly know which of Duncan's relatives will succeed him; there is no strict rule of primogeniture. There is a sort of election among the Nobles, including Macduff, thane of Fife (who knows that "he is already named") but not the thane of Ross apparently. One factor in choosing the new successor is the wishes of the former king; that… Read More
King Duncan has rewarded Macbeth already, or we wouldn't be talking about a "further" reward. Macbeth became Thane of Glamis automatically on Synel's death. The reward that Macbeth has already got from Duncan is the title thane of Cawdor. Since he has been told by the witches that he will be king, he expects or at least hopes to be named Duncan's heir ("If fate would have me king, why fate may crown me."). He… Read More
Not at all. He and Donalbain fled the country after his father's murder, thus casting suspicion on themselves and enabling Macbeth to succeed. Before the murder, it was a problem for Macbeth's ambition that Malcolm had been named prince of Cumberland and thus heir apparent by Duncan. But that was Duncan's doing, not Malcolm's.
What he says is: The Prince of Cumberland! that is a step On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, For in my way it lies. and that expresses pretty exactly what he is thinking. He is not going to become king as the witches promised if Malcolm is the heir to the throne. Of course, in doing this he is twisting what the witches said. They promised that he would be "king hereafter"… Read More
When Malcolm is named heir to the throne.
No. King Duncan was clueless. He admits it himself: "There's no art to find the mind's construction in the face; he was a gentleman in whom I built an absolute trust." He had no idea what was going on with Macbeth. Macbeth really expected to be named as Duncan's heir (he was after all a successful warrior unlike the feckless Malcolm) and was shocked and hurt when Duncan named Malcolm Prince of Cumberland. And then… Read More
it does mention but i don't know were, the heir was Malcolm
Malcolm was the first homosexual man named to royalty in modern literature.
This is a somewhat disputed issue. According to the traditional Scottish method of selecting successors to a king, called tanistry, the new king was elected from the late king's close relatives. We see a reflection of this practise in this conversation in Act 2 Scene 4: "Then 'tis most like the sovereignty will fall on Macbeth" "He is already named, and gone to Scone to be invested." In such a system, Macbeth would have had… Read More

Macbeth was the Thane of Glamis before he was also named Thane of Cawdor.
Duncan's sons did not become kings after his death because they sensed danger and planed to slip away quietly, therefore Macbeth was named king as he was the thane of Glamis, and Cawdor which gave him a higher rank. After the death of Macbeth, Malcolm is than given the throne.

Cumberland Road :P
Because he wouldn't be a king. A male who inherits the throne in England, is the King. His wife may be called Queen, but she is a Queen consort - she does not share the king's military or political power. A female who inherits the throne is also a Queen, but she is a Queen regnant, and has all the powers of a king as described above. While her husband could be called a 'King… Read More

Why was Diana named princess Diana when she married a princes and Kate became a Duchess when she married a princes?
Because Charles was first in line to throne and therefore Prince of Wales when he married Diana. She then became The Princess of Wales upon marriage. William is second in line to the throne and not The Prince of Wales (yet). He was created the Duke of Cambridge upon his wedding day and so Kate became The Duchess of Cambridge. She is however also "Princess William" just as a married woman can be Mrs John… Read More
