He was the eldest son of King until he was orphaned age 9.
So was he ever a Prince of Wales? Sources disagree.

Duke of Cornwall only. He was not created Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester.

Do Jacobites discount him in the line of succession?

Probably depends on whether the Jacobites in question are more
concerned with promoting Catholicism or opposing rebellion.

If you see the cause as originating in the "Glorious Revolution"
you get one answer,if you trace it back to the Reformation you get
another.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

Catherine of Aragon passed away about 6 months before Henry VIII married Edward VI's mother. Just guessing, but I should think that the Jacobites would accept Edward VI's validity in the line of succession to his father, followed by his elder half-sister Mary.
