Princess Diana death anniversary: Why was Diana a Princess but Kate is not?
Princess Diana died 21 years ago today in a tragedy that shocked the world and devastated her royal fans around the globe. Why did Diana get the title of Princess while Kate is a Duchess?
Princess Diana was killed 21 years ago in a traffic collision in Paris, leaving behind her young children Prince William and Prince Harry.
With both of the Princes now mature and married, they have taken up their positions as Duke of Sussex and Duke of Cambridge, with their wives Meghan and Kate becoming Duchesses.
When Diana married the heir of the throne Prince Charles, she was bestowed the title of Her Royal Highness (HRH) The Princess of Wales.
Kate became HRH The Duchess of Cambridge after marrying Prince William, who is second in line to the throne, so why was she not bestowed the title of princess too?
Why is Duchess Kate not a princess?
Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011, to a countrywide service which captured the hearts of millions.
Prince William was bestowed the title of the Duke of Cambridge and following their marriage, Kate became the Duchess of Cambridge.
Princess Diana was given a similar title on her marriage to Prince Charles in 1981, but it was not the same as Kate’s.
