No her name is not mentioned and the..The is included so her title would be....HRH The Princess of Wales

1.

I wish His Royal Highness and Ms Middleton could be granted a Commonwealth title...such as Duke/Duchess of Sydney/Melbourne/Perth etc.

2

If Catherine is with child and gives birth to a girl, then they have another girl and no more children, will that first female child succeed to the Throne as Queen Regnant?

I wish we could have another Victoria or even another Elizabeth named after there great grandmother...we could have an Elizabeth III.

3.

Say there is two girls...would the eldest be granted the title/style of HRH Princess of Wales in her own right...or even say her name was Victoria...HRH The Princess Victoria of say Windsor as the family name is Windsor...

Yes the first female born would succeed to the throne

I think that there would be a huge outcry in this case, because the Commonwealth countries, at least the ones that I know of, don't recognize aristocratic titles. Immigrants left that behind in the "old country."

No woman has ever been made Princess of Wales in her own right. It was considered in 1947 for the present Queen, but rejected. (I think it's more likely that it would happen now, although obviously I don't have a crystal ball.) She wouldn't be "of Windsor." She would simply be The Princess Victoria during William's reign.

If Princess Anne had already died she could eventually be created Princess Royal.

That would not be possible, since it is a title granted by the British monarch to his/her eldest daughter. The next Princess Royal could be William and Catherine's eldest daughter, but there can only be one Princess Royal at a time.

That is what Princess Agnes is suggesting.

The question is what title a Princess Victoria (daughter of William and Catherine) would hold while William is King....either Princess Royal or Princess of Wales in her own right.

Okay, this should really upset the applecart, but just a thought...

William and Catherine have, in the following order, daughter, daughter, son. By then, they have passed absolute primogeniture, so possibly (real outside chance, I know), we could have The Princess of Wales (in her own right), The Princess Royal (oldest daughter who is not the heiress), and The Duke of Somewhere...

This is just a thought, so please no coronaries or aneurysms over this...just a possibility.

Good situation to think about.

I don't think that if the first daughter is The Princess of Wales (can't see them wanting to over turn years and years of precedence) than the 2nd daughter will be the Princess Royal. That would be doing a lot of new things at one time.

But I guess if they are using absolute primogeniture anything is possible.

I'm hoping they make an eldest daughter Princess of Wales in their own right.

The problem with that is if she marries, what will her husband be...just HRH The Duke of what not or HRH Prince of Wales?

Well it's only fair for him to become Prince of Wales, like a commoner becomes a Princess of Wales if she marries the heir?

It would be only fair but I don't think that is a situation that will happen.

It certainly is up to them. Just as any new title is up to the Queen.

Is a Queen Regnant the same as Queen? Is that the formal title?

maybe she could be HRH The Princess of Wales (Will and Kate's daughter) and her husband could be Duke of Cornwall (like Camilla is now- did I get that title correct?)

Queen Regnant is a female monarch who reigns in her own right, opposed to a Queen Consort.
That's a good idea.

A Queen Regnant is the Sovereign, the Reigning Monarch.
A Queen Consort is the spouse of the King.
