Kate Middleton news: Duchess will miss queen title if Prince George is King


Kate Middleton has been married to the Queen’s grandson, Prince William, since 2011. At the wedding, she became part of the Royal Family and was given the title of the Duchess of Cambridge. What will her if Prince George becomes King?

Her husband, Prince William, is second in line to the throne and is in line to become King one day.

If this happened, Kate would become Queen Consort, the title given to the wife of the ruling King.

With this, the royal would have her own coronation and would share the same social status as the King.

The Royal Family website said: “Unless decided otherwise, a Queen Consort is crowned with the King, in a similar but simpler ceremony.

DON’T MISS

“If the new Sovereign is a Queen, her consort is not crowned or anointed at the coronation ceremony.”

Kate would not have the same political powers as the king but she would have more responsibility than she does now.

The royal would support William in his duties as King as well as attending official engagements and continuing to work with charities.

The Duke and Duchess have three children together, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one.

Even though Kate’s title would change, her role and responsibilities would not be much different.

The Queen Mother has the same duties as the Queen Consort and she would stay as one of the most senior members of the Royal Family.

The mother of Queen Elizabeth II was the last Queen Mother in the UK, and she held the title for an impressive 50 years.

How did Kate Middleton become a royal?

Early life

Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.

She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.

Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.

Education

Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.

After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.

For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.

Relationship with Prince William

Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.

In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.

The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.

Wedding

Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.

On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.

Kate assumed the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge” and also become the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.
