Prince William New Title: Kate Middleton, William Given New Title
Buckingham Palace Has Announced That Prince William and Kate Middleton Will Be Given a New Title After They Are Married
Prince William will be known as the Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus. Kate Middleton will be known as Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge after they are joined together as man and wife.
The Queen bestowed the new title on the couple the morning of the wedding. There hasn't been a Duke of Cambridge since 1904, so it may puzzle people as to why the Queen chose to give the new titles to the young couple.
Kate Middleton, being a commoner, did not have a title before marrying Prince William.
The new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the ceremony is complete.
