And it’s Duke of Cambridge

With a week to go until my civil partnership next Friday, I know that there is often much to be done in preparation, but fortunately Andrew and I don’t have to wonder what we will be called after the ceremony. For Kate Middleton there has probably been a bit of a wait but now it is over. The answer: HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.

His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales is created Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn, and Baron Carrickfergus, which means that following her marriage Miss Kate Middleton will be HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, Countess Strathearn, and Baroness Carrickfergus.

This will stop her being known as HRH Princess William of Wales, which would have been the alternative if Prince William had not been created Duke of Cambridge.

I am sure that the whole of the United Kingdom will be wishing HRH The Duke of Cambridge and Miss Kate Middleton all the best for their marriage today.

  1. Why do they have to take her name from her. Why can’t she just be called Princess Catherine? This sort of nitpicking adherence to protocol really annoys me.

    But I totally share your good wishes to both of them.

    1. This happens as wives are entitled to the rank and style of their husband. A married woman is technically Mrs Joseph Bloggs not Mrs Mary Bloggs, as to use this would suggest that she were divorced.

  2. Micheal, What make you think the whole of the Uk will be wishing them well?

    Irish Republicans won’t, lefties won’t, Anyone with half a brain won’t.

    1. I find that comment rather offensive – as it suggests that those of us who are monarchists are stupid. We just are loyal to our Sovereign Lady.
