That is, if they have a daughter.
The royal palace is still keeping the sex of the baby on lockdown, but if Prince William and Kate Middleton do have a girly bundle of joy, the babe will get the title of princess unlike it has been done in the past.
Typically, a baby girl born to a royal couple ended up being called ‘Lady,’ but Queen Elizabeth II is getting with the times and updating those stuffy, old standards.
We already knew there were plans to change succession laws that could accommodate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge having either a boy or girl first, and now this news is getting us psyched!
A notice of this change was printed in the London Gazette:
“The Queen has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 31 December 2012 to declare that all the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales should have and enjoy the style, title and attribute of royal highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names or with such other titles of honour.”
Can you just imagine Wills and Kate with a fashion-forward little princess?!
We want a Kate Jr.!
