So, Is Kate Middleton A Princess Or What???

Filed under: Royals Royce

We think there are just a few of you at home who are scratching their heads in confuzzlement over why everyone's referring to Kate Middleton as the Duchess of Cambridge rather than the Princess of Wales.

We're here to rearrange your mind tools and set the record straight!

First of all, yes, technically, Kate is also known as Princess William of Wales, but that isn't her official title as far as the Palace is concerned. A few months back, Prince William sat down with The Queen to decide what their official titles will be and they decided he and Kate would officially be known as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

But that's not all! Prince William also has two other titles to go by. Following royal tradition, the Queen bestowed William with these two additional titles: Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, linking him to Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Still confused? Make it easy on yourself - just call'em Will & Kate! Simple, easy to remember!

What Royal Titles Will Kate And William Take???

Filed under: Royals RoyceKate Middleton

kate and william to take on royal titles

We know these two are already fighting against tradition…maybe they'll take it further and just go by "Mr." and "Mrs." Ha!

As the royal wedding approaches, the question of royal titles has come up, and it looks like Kate and William have a few options.

As far as William is concerned, he COULD remain HRH Prince William of Wales, but if he decides to go for something more elaborate, he could become the Duke of Clarence, Cambridge, Connaught, Sussex, Kendal, Avondale, Strathearn, or Teviotdale.

Kate Middleton COULD become HRH Princess William of Wales, or possibly Princess Catherine of Wales (with the Queen's approval).

Given Princess Diana's associations with the title "Princess of Wales," she has chosen not to take that title though. If William becomes a duke, she could end up as the Duchess of Clarence, Cambridge, Connaught, and all the other options listed above for William.

Should be inneresting to see what titles they end up with!

What titles do U think William and Kate should choose? What title would U choose for yourself?
