Kate Will Be The Next Princess of WalesMay 27, 2019
This is what royal experts have told Daily Star Online after it was revealed that Prince Charles is attending secret meetings to prepare for becoming the King.
As he prepares to take over the throne form the Queen, it was reported that William is also preparing to take his dad’s place as heir to the throne. William will inherit Charles’ £1billion estate and the title Duke of Cornwall when he takes his place.
But experts tell us it is likely Charles will, when he becomes King, bestow his current title “Prince of Wales” onto William. The title is not automatic and is more seen as an “honor” for heirs to the throne, but it will carry massive significance for Kate. If William becomes Prince of Wales, Kate then will become Princess of Wales.
The same title used by Princess Diana, and also could have been taken by Camilla as wife of Charles. But because of the potential uproar from Diana’s followers, Camilla decided not to take the title when she married Charles, meaning Diana was the last woman to be Princess of Wales.
Now experts say Kate’s official title will be Princess of Wales, regardless of the apparent “curse”.
One of Britain’s leading royal commentators, Robert Jobson, told Daily Star Online: “If William is given the title by his dad when Charles is king, Kate will be Princess of Wales… simple as that. The reason Camilla didn’t take the title is exceptional, she was Charles’s mistress. Camilla chose to use one of Charles’s other titles hence she is HRH The Duchess of Cornwall in England and Wales. Should Camilla want to be styled HRH The Princess of Wales she could be.”
He added: “Bottom line is the title has nothing to do with her (Kate). She will get it as William’s wife. Not for anything she does. He will only get it if his father awards him the title. There is nothing automatic about it. Just twenty-one men have held that coveted rank in history.”
“Charles is the latest having been made it at 10. The title ‘Prince of Wales’ is one of the great continuities of English and Welsh and, latterly, British, history. The incumbent has no formal public role or responsibility legislated by Parliament, but the bearer of the title is usually the next in line to the throne or heir apparent.”
“The title, which is within the gift of the reigning sovereign, is granted to the heir apparent as a personal dignity and the title Earl of Chester has always been bestowed upon the recipient in conjunction with it. It is not automatically given, and the title not heritable, either. It is seen as a great honor.”
Managing editor of Majesty Magazine, Joe Little, agreed that the Duchess of Cambridge will take the title, and reckons it’s almost a certain William will be Prince of Wales.
“Yes, she will (become Princess of Wales), is the short answer. The process of William becoming Prince of Wales is not automatic but will surely happen.”
