The title Kate Middleton could take when Prince William becomes King REVEALED
PRINCE William is second in line to the throne after his father and heir apparent, Prince Charles.
While Wills title is clear, what is not, is the title his spouse Kate Middleton will take.
Prince Charles created quite a stir earlier this year when Clarence House removed a statement made before the couple’s marriage in 2005.
The Prince of Wales’s website deleted all references to Camilla being named the Princess Consort.
The website had earlier stated “it was intended The Duchess will be known as HRH The Princess Consort when the Prince of Wales accedes to the throne”.
After the statement was removed, questions were raised about whether Charles, 69, was paving the way for his wife, 70, to be crowned Queen.
Clarence House said it was removed because the public was no longer interested in the issues.
But reports claimed that Prince Charles intended to make his wife a queen and disliked the “made-up” styling Princess Consort.
If he gets his alleged preference, Camilla would technically become “queen consort” instead of process consort, as the wife of the sovereign.
Only ruling royals like Queen Elizabeth are “queen regnant” while husbands of ruling queens like Prince Philip traditionally do not change their titles.
In the same way, Kate Middleton could graduate from Duchess of Cambridge to Queen Catherine when Prince William becomes king.
Though officially she would also be a queen consort, reports Women’s Health.
The couple could also another title upgrade sooner when Prince Charles becomes the monarch.
It’s technically up to him to decide, but he’ll likely make his son the new Prince of Wales – a title that has been given to the heir apparent since the 14th century.
This step could grant Kate the title of Catherine, Princess of Wales.
It is a title that was held by Diana, Princess of Wales.
Though Camilla is officially entitled to the styling, she skips using it out of respect for the late royal.
And there is evert chance Kate may also choose to do the same, added the publication.
