I thought it would be Duke of Strathearn and Earl of Cambridge. I almost won :)

Very convenient and a nice title for William and Catherine. Many more good titles.

I know this is for a different thread but since it's been mentioned here... I hope Catherine does not use the Cambridge Tiara in conjunction with the title. The media is already drawing way to many comparisons between Catherine and Diana, the use of that particular tiara would only exacerbate the comparisons. Love the title and had hoped the Queen would either make Catherine a princess in her own right (as she did with Prince Philip) or dust off Cambridge for the couple.

In the forum's poll I have voted for the Dukedom of Cambridge as many of us!
I'm so happy for Catherine's new status and as far as I can see Wiki has modified her profile page and is now protected!!

I have heard it already -- on the radio while I was driving to work, the DJ referred to "Princess Kate"...

She is a princess by marriage, not by birth. However because William was made a peer on his wedding day, she will be known by the feminine form of his ducal title -- HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.

TRH, Prince and Princess William of Wales?

I was told by a friend that they are still are still Prince and Princess William of Wales but they were also given a Royal Duke ship (can't think of the correct word). I hope this is true and they can still use this though I doubt they will

I wish Kate and Will had declined the Duke title. It's so blah!

To be given a Ducal title is an honour, William is now also an Earl and a Baron.

According to the website of the Prince of Wales, their new titles (in addition to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) are The Earl and Lady of Strathearn and The Baron and Countess of Carrickfergus.

Can anyone explain why so? You would think the counterpart for Earl would be Countess and for Baron it would be Baroness.

I think there's an error on the site. It should be Earl and Countess of Strathearn and Baron and Baroness/Lady Carrickfergus (no "of" in the latter).

What so great about this or these titles? What makes this so perfect? I thought William did not care for titles? I am suprised he/they accepted this. It would have been more interesting making Kate a Princess, Princess William of Wales and if he remained Prince William.

He's still Prince William and making Kate a princess in her own right would have been even more pompous. He needs a title, he is a future King.

Umm, she is Princess William. Her full title is HRH Princess William Arthur Philip Louis, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus.

How many times has it been said on this board in relation to the giving/receiving of a dukedom, that you don't lose any titles, you gain them. He's still Prince William, she's now Princess William, just that he's a peer and will now be referred to by that peerage, as will she.

William is the first son of a Prince of Wales to marry since Queen Victoria's reign. Victoria's two eldest male-line grandsons were created Royal Dukes and the British monarchy usually follows tradition in these matters.

Given The Queen's good health and his father's vigor, it could be 15 years before William becomes The Duke of Cornwall. It makes sense for him to have a Dukedom of his own in the meantime.

They are as follows: TRH Prince and Princess William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Earl and Countess of Strathearn, Baron and Baroness Carrickfergus. Because William was made a peer, he will now be known the senior most of those peerages, which is his ducal title. As his wife, she will be known by the feminine form of that title. So while they are still Prince and Princess William, they will be styled and referred to now as TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Which sounds damn regal.
