What will Kate and William be called when Charles becomes the King?


Since the day of their wedding, we have known Kate and William as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The name suits them.

However, it won’t be their name forever. It’s all pretty confusing, isn’t it? Well, may whatever be the case, the things will have to move forward and so the titles.

When the Prince of Wales, Charles ascends to the throne of England after his mother, Queen Elizabeth, and becomes King, Kate and William will have a name change. Prince William will inherit his father’s titles. He then, will be known as the Duke of Cornwall. Not only this, he will also be the Duke of Rothesay when in Scotland.

It’s too much of royal names and titles.

Needless to say, the Duke of Cambridge, William will have a number of new titles. And, so will his lovely wife, Kate Middleton. William’s beloved wife, Kate will take on all of the same titles as her husband, but as a Duchess.

Marlene Koenig, a royal historian, recently explained to The Royal UK that Prince William will always be the Duke of Cambridge. However, he may be styled as ‘HRH The Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge’. Kate Middleton would be ‘HRH The Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge’. And the royal couple’s three children would also be ‘of Cornwall and Cambridge’.

Changes will soon take place in the British monarchy.

Then there is the Prince of Wales title. This royal title is not actually a given apparently. The title is not hereditary, and Prince Charles did not become the Prince of Wales until he was nine years old.

However, it is at the discretion of the reigning monarch. And so, we can assume that Prince William and Kate Middleton will become the Princess and Prince of Wales at some point.
