Prince William and Kate Middleton could get new titles once Prince Charles assumes the throne, it’s been revealed.
According to Hello!, William and Kate, known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, could be named the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge.
Royals expert Marlene Koenig added that William may also take on his father’s title of Prince of Wales, meaning Kate would be the Princess of Wales.
The Queen handed Charles the title, which isn’t hereditary, when he was nine years old.
Koenig thinks William would eventually end up with the title, but not within the first few weeks of Charles’ reign.
The news comes after Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall’s future title had disappeared from the Clarence House official website.
When asked what Camilla would be called once Charles became King, royals correspondent Emily Nash explained: “At the time of her 2005 wedding to Prince Charles, Clarence House said the Duchess of Cornwall would be known as Princess Consort when her husband became King.
“Memories of his divorce and the tragic death of Princess Diana meant the public were not receptive to the idea of her becoming Queen at that time.
“There is nothing to suggest that the plan has changed, although many royals watchers are convinced that the Prince of Wales wants his wife to be Queen alongside him when he is crowned.”
