British titles

Why is it that prices and princesses don't seem to retain their titles after marriage? Case in point after marriage Prince William suddenly was downgraded to a duke. His wife became a duchesse which was a step up for her but not as big a step as you would expect for marrying a prince.

I know when you're royal you tend to get a bunch of titles attached for one reason or another but am I wrong in thinking a prince outranks a duke? Wouldn't you go by the most important title and let the rest of the titles follow after?
