Bonjour à tous, j'ai un texte ou il y a des cas possessifs. Je les ai relevés, merci de me corriger :
"on his dad's side is queen Elizabeth II"
"their parents' divorce"
"the memory of their mother"
"William's favourite school subjects"
"and he enters st Andrew's university"
" the queen's grandson"
"his friends' company"

To be able to say if 'his friends' company is correct, we need to know the context. Are you talking about one friend or more than one? 'his friend's company' is for one friend and 'his friends' company' is for more than one friend.
Also 'to the memory of their mother' is correct if we are talking about something that is built to remember her. 'their mother's memory' is correct if we mean for example 'their mother's memory is not very good now that she is old.'
