Kate Middleton and Prince William’s titles changed after Queen
After the death of Queen Elizabeth yesterday, title changes were made in the royal family. With Prince Charles becoming king, the titles of Kate Middleton and Prince William have also changed. Middleton will now be “princess”.
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s titles changed after Queen Elizabeth died yesterday at the age of 96. After Prince Charles, the Duke of Cornwall, became the new king, the title of Cornwall passed to his son Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton.
The official Twitter and Instagram accounts of the couple, who were “Duke and Duchess of Cambridge” when the Queen was alive, were given the titles “Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge”.
WILL BE THE PRINCESS
The three-child couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 40 years old, will also hold the titles Prince and Princess of Wales, a title held by Charles and Princess Diana.
The royal family’s title change comes after it was announced yesterday that the longest-reigning British monarch died peacefully at Balmoral Castle at the age of 96 after being placed under “medical custody”.
The Queen’s death marked the beginning of a new era for the House of Windsor as Charles ascended the throne to become king of England and the Commonwealth of Nations. According to the Queen’s will, Charles’ wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, will become queen.
Charles said: “We mourn the passing of a beloved monarch and a much-loved mother. “I know that his loss will be deeply felt by countless people throughout the country, across kingdoms, the Commonwealth and the world.”
The Queen has four children, Prince Charles, Andrew, Edward and Princess Anne, she has eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
