But it is nicer that Catherine will not have to be known as Princess William, which she would have been otherwise.

Wow! Well if he had to be granted another title to go along with Prince William, at least it's one of the most favored ones from this board. I like that he also got two additional titles. I like the sound of all three!

She still is a Princess. Just not a Princess in her own right.

She is Princess Wiliam but will be known as the Duchess of Cambridge.

Out of curiosity, when Charles becomes King, will "The Prince(ss) be added then?

Very excited, and I was so hoping for Cambridge! SO glad it happened!

Correct, although in practice it probably won't get used (just as she won't be called "Princess William" in three hours, even though she will be).

She's marrying a prince, so she'll be a princess. However is also marrying a peer, and she'll be known by that title, which is Duchess of Cambridge.

Yes. Once Charles becomes King, William will become "The Prince William, The Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge" and Harry will become "The Prince Harry".

I was rather hoping it wouldn't be Cambridge, but I'm not surprised it is, considering Diana's connection to the Cambridge Lovers' Knot tiara, and Cambridge Emeralds. I'm sure we'll see them on Kate now.

ABC (and probably other networks) and "royal expert" bought into that story that the Queen might allow her to be called "Princess Catherine." I think we have finally put that story to rest.

I'm so happy with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! I think many of us guessed that. Also like the Earl of Strathearn.

Sorry if this is being repeated, but the last Marquess of Cambridge died and thus the title become extinct April 16, 1981, exactly 30 years ago (plus a few days).

Cambridge is the perfect choice for them. Love that Catherine will be Duchess of Cambridge rather than simply Princess William.
Congrats to them both!
