It seems that Kate Middleton will not hold the title Duchess of Cambridge for much longer, as a great change is coming to the British royal family.
Catherine first became the Duchess of Cambridge when she married Prince William back in 2011. Since then, the couple welcomed three children and remained among the most active and beloved duo in the royal family.
The pair took on more workload after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit their royal duties and moved to California.
According to numerous royal experts, it was very likely for the 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth II to consider stepping down from most of her royal duties in due time and to leave the throne to Prince Charles.
Prince Charles’s ascension to the throne would mean that he no longer would be the Prince of Wales — a title that he has held since 1969 and would be passed down to Prince William.
So, as a result, when Prince William becomes the Prince of Wales, Catherine will be granted the title “Princess of Wales,” which was last held by Princess Diana.
The title “Princess of Wales” remained vacant after the sad passing of Princess Diana back in 1997.
When Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, married Prince Charles in 2005, she chose not to bear the title in tribute to the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry.
However, since Prince William is second in line to the throne, one day, he is expected to become king after Prince Charles.
Once that the current Duke of Cambridge heads the monarchy, it is expected for Kate Middleton to change title too, and she would most likely become Queen Catherine.
Kate Middleton’s presence and devotion to representing the royal family during a long list of scandals caused by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and heartbreaks have some royal experts saying that she has effectively taken Prince Philip‘s mantle.
Some royal backers are even asking for Kate Middleton to become Queen instead of Camilla Parker Bowles.
Since the passing of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Kate Middleton has taken it upon herself to be the glue that keeps the dismantled royal family together.
At the age of 95, Queen Elizabeth is not only mourning the death of her husband, but she is also fighting against all the truth bombs being thrown by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Royal expert Vanity Fair royal editor Katie Nicholl revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge has become the royal family’s “greatest asset” and that she is “the perfect vehicle for good PR for the family” in a difficult time.
Nicholl said: “I think Kate is the glue. In the same way that the Duke of Edinburgh was always the one who would help resolve family issues. He was the patriarch of the family. I see Kate stepping into that role. Trying to keep things together.”
Could Kate Middleton become Queen sooner than thought? Nicholl explained: “A lot of people think it would make more sense to skip a generation and let the crown move straight to William and Kate. Possibly they might prove a more popular King and Queen than Charles and Camilla. But the idea of breaking constitution and that is essentially everything the Royal Family is built upon is really something that’s not going to happen.”
Some observers believe that Queen Elizabeth is an institutionalist and might not do something as bold as to skip Prince Charles’s turn as King.
