Prince William and Kate Middleton Will Receive King Charles’s Old Titles
That’s how the monarchy works.
Prince William is one step closer to the throne. Yet, after his grandmother’s death, his current duties doubled.
After his father, Prince Charles, became the King, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, assumed the titles of Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge. ELLE reports that the monarch became the first in the succession line, meaning he and his spouse are likely to take on all the old titles of King Charles and his late wife, Princess Diana.
Queen Elizabeth died on 8 September afternoon in Balmoral. Throne successor, King Charles, declared 17 days of national mourning.
