Here's Kate Middleton's possible new title if Prince William becomes king
Royal observers have long wondered what Kate Middleton's title will be once Prince William becomes king.
Kate would graduate from Duchess of Cambridge to Queen Catherine when her husband takes over the throne, as reported by Good Housekeeping.
When Prince Charles becomes the monarch, Kate and William will also likely get a title upgrade
William will likely get the title Prince of Wales, the title given to the heir apparent since the 14th century.
In turn, Kate will become Catherine, Princess of Wales - just like her deceased mother-in-law
But Kate may decline to use it out of respect for the late Princess Diana. This was the reason Camilla chose not to use the styling, although she is entitled to it.
