Well, the future Count Scarlet, in this context. It's just a slightly oblique way of calling him Remilia's fiancé without repeating that specific word, which Marisa had just used herself (albeit in the opposite gender) a short while before. Conversational streamlining.
(Besides, his Karlsland title isn't something that comes up very often in the day-to-day at home, so even if Sakuya knows about it, it wouldn't be uppermost in her mind; he pretty much only uses when he's dealing with somebody in the outside world who response to having titles thrown around, or who used it first, like Admiral Sugita.)
