Kate Middleton will one day lose her Duchess of Cambridge title, following changes in the ranks of the royal family along with the line of succession.

The mum-of-three, who today broke her silence on the birth of her new niece, Lilibet, has held her Duchess of Cambridge title for just over a decade after she married Prince William in April 2011.

Since the pair’s lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey, Kate has been referred to as the Duchess of Cambridge and she has performed all her royal duties in line with the high-flying title.

However, that will change when her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, becomes second in line to the throne.

And that could be sooner than expected, amid rumours the Queen is preparing her son Prince Charles to become Prince Regent.

Following the passing of the late Prince Philip, royal fans have been thinking about the future of the monarchy.

When Prince Charles eventually takes over from Queen Elizabeth, Prince William will become the Prince of Wales.

That means in turn that Kate will change her title from the Duchess of Cambridge to the Princess of Wales.

Royal fans will remember that this is the title formerly held by Prince William and Prince Harry's mother Diana. It is also the same title that was turned down by Camilla Duchess of Cornwall out of respect.

As it stands, there have been 26 princes of Wales so far. But it's Prince Charles who has been the longest-serving heir and Prince of Wales.

However, Kate's royal title will one day change once again.

Looking forward, as the role of the monarch passes down from the Queen to Prince Charles it will then pass down to Prince William.

William will then be known as King William. But seeing as Kate doesn't have any royal blood in her family, she will be a Queen consort.



Earlier today, Katewho has been "privately called" by Meghan Markle in an attempt to fix the royal feud , told a reporter she was looking forward to meeting her new niece Liilibet in the near future.

She said: “I wish her the very best. I can’t wait to meet her. We haven’t met her yet, I hope that will be soon.”

Her words came as Kate,who previously congratulated the happy couple earlier in the week, visited a school in Cornwall with US First Lady Dr Jill Biden for the G7 summit.
