Queen Elizabeth may have already appointed Prince Charles as her successor, but one question still remains: What will Kate Middleton’s title be when he becomes king?
Per royal tradition, Prince William will inherit his father’s title, Prince of Wales, when Charles takes over the throne. This means Middleton will likely get rid of her Duchess of Cambridge title for something more sentimental: The Princess of Wales.
If that moniker sounds rather familiar, you should know that it previously belonged to the late Princess Diana. She inherited the title when she married Prince Charles in 1981. It has remained in retirement since her tragic death in 1997. Although Kate could opt against the title (similar to how Camilla Parker Bowles goes by the Duchess of Cornwall, not the Princess of Wales), but we can’t think of a more suitable successor.
