Will Kate Middleton be Queen? This is what Duchess’ title will be when William is King

Kate Middleton and Prince William married in April 2011 after they began dating in 2003.  Since then, they have gone on to have three children, Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis, 11 months.  Prince William is currently second in line for the throne after his dad, Prince Charles, 70, who is first in line.  It seems likely Prince William will one day take to the throne, but what will happen to Kate?

Kate Middleton news: This is what happens to Duchess when William is King

What will her title be?

When she got married nearly eight-years-ago, Kate Middleton was given the title of the Duchess of Cambridge.

She will be granted a new title if Prince William does become King, but she could never become the Queen.

This is because the title of Queen is reserved only for those who are monarchs by birthright.

Instead, she will be given the title of Queen Consort, which is given to the wife of a ruling King, and she will have her own coronation.

What will she have to do?

Alongside a new title, Kate will be given more responsibilities as she will share the King’s social rank and status, although not the same political power.

Kate will have her own coronation to welcome her into this role, and it will be a less grand version of Prince William’s coronation, according to the official royal website.

Since she entered into the Royal Family, Kate has appeared with Prince William as he has carried out royal duties, as well as representing the royals at events on her own.

It is believed the Duchess will most likely continue to do this and appear with William on official Royal duties.

Kate and William will be getting ready to celebrate their wedding anniversary, as it will be their eight-year anniversary on 29 April.

The pair finally married after they had been dating since 2003, and their wedding was a lavish ceremony thought it cost £26 million.

Around £24 million of this was thought to be spent on security alone and Kate wore a £250,000 dress designed by Sarah Burton. 

As well as being a full-time royal, Kate has also became a mum-of-three since the wedding.

Her youngest child, Prince Louis, will turn one next week on 23 April and it is likely the family will celebrate at home.
