He is technically "HRH Prince William of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, etc".

I just love that Catherine is going to be the Duchess of Cambridge. That just sounds so elegant, and so befitting a future Queen.

Will she wear the Lovers Knot now?

Duke of Leaside 04-29-2011 03:26 AM

So Miss Catherine Elizabeth Middleton will, in less than 4 hours, become

Her Royal Highness Princess William Arthur Philip Louis, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus.

She'll by styled "HRH The Duchess of Cambridge"

From Bucklebury to Buckingham Palace!!!

Pretty cool.

I don't know, I hope not. I want to go 2-for-2, as I voted for the Strathmore Rose. :lol:

The title is yet to grow on me.

Small correction, she will be "HRH Princess William, etc".

"The Prince(ss)" is only used for the children of the monarch, and the wives of the sons of the monarch.

No problem! :flowers:

Hope that we all have a great day today!

I'm not sure they'll be "of Wales" anymore. The territorial designations are an informal addition to titles that originally came about to differentiate similarly-named children within the large royal family of the 19th century; I'm not sure they get used once someone has a unique title.

Moonmaiden23 04-29-2011 03:36 AM

HA....I knew it!! I love it!:rofl::flowers:

And just like Sister Morphine, I am partial to the Strathmore Rose..it's exquisite as you can see from my avatar.

HM Queen Catherine 04-29-2011 03:38 AM

I'm very happy with the titles chosen for William and Catherine :flowers:

I believe they will not. I had already edited my original post to take "of Wales" out and also to remove the "The" before Princess.

I'm not sure if it will be "...Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus" or "...Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus".

We may have to wait to see the wording in the Letters Patent.

Jacknch 04-29-2011 03:40 AM

Hurrah!!! Cambridge is in East Anglia! So the main ducal titles are staying with the main heirs.

Either one would be correct, as I've seen similar titles worded just like that.

lady of hay 04-29-2011 03:41 AM

SisterMorphine, I'm going for the Strathmore Rose too. I hope like you I get 2 out of 2 as I also thought Cambridge. I hope Catherine dos'nt wear the Cambridge Tiara today, I think it's too" heavy" for her.

Royal wedding: Wills and Kate will become Duke and Duchess of Cambridge | Mail Online

agami.pearl 04-29-2011 03:45 AM

Duke of Cambridge... WOW, I didin't expected it to be honest but I'm glad that the Queen granted them in this way. Titles connected with Scotland and N.Ireland are great.

soapstar 04-29-2011 03:47 AM

I love the new title.
