Royals in line for title changes from Archie and Lilibet to Kate Middleton

The royals are often granted grand titles – but some are not kept forever.

These special tags can change as the individual navigates their way through royal life.

A recent example is Lady Louise Windsor, who turned 18 this week. She does not use an HRH or princess title, even though she is entitled to, Mirror reports.

But now she's an adult, she could decide to take on a royal title if she wanted to. And she isn't the only royal who could see their title's change in the future.

Here we take a look at the royals who could be seeing a change, or multiple changes, to their titles in the future.

Prince William

On his wedding day in 2011, Prince William was granted the title of Duke of Cambridge.

But when his father Prince Charles ascends to the throne, he will also be known as something else.

This is because he will inherit Charles's title Prince of Wales, which is reserved for the male heir to the throne.

Not only this, he will also become the Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay when in Scotland and the Earl of Chester.

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge was also granted her grand title on her wedding time, the same time as her husband Prince William.

When his titles change once Charles becomes king – so will hers.

As William becomes Prince of Wales, Kate will be entitled to be the Princess of Wales, a title that used to be held by her late mother-in-law Princess Diana.

She will also be able to take the female version of other future titles, meaning she will also be Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesday and Countess of Chester.

When William eventually gets to the throne, she will become Queen consort, meaning she will most likely become Queen Catherine, her real name.

Prince George

Prince George is third in line to the throne and could see numerous title changes over his lifetime.

His current title is Prince George of Cambridge but once his parents become Prince and Princess of Wales, he will become known as Prince George of Wales.

Then once his parents become King and Queen, as the male heir he would become the Prince of Wales.

That is not to mention the fact that he will also probably be given a dukedom on his wedding day, should he choose to marry.

Princess Charlotte

Just like her big brother George, Princess Charlotte is also due for some dramatic title changes.

She too will be known as Princess Charlotte of Cambridge but will change to become Princess Charlotte of Wales once her dad becomes the Prince of Wales.

Meanwhile, when William becomes King, he could choose to give her the title of Princess Royal, which is usually awarded to the oldest daughter of the monarch.

But as it is a title that remains for life, Charlotte could only be awarded it once the current Princess Royal, Princess Anne, passes away.

Duchess of Cornwall

  • Prince Harry ‘locked in royal mode’ but Meghan Markle an ‘A-list celeb’ at NYC event

There have been many reports that Prince Charles plans to slim down the monarchy once he becomes king.

And the only way he can do this is if he gives his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, an unprecedented title when he gets to the throne.

When the wife of a King uses the title of Queen Consort and ever since they went public with their relationship there has been much discussion about the role his second wife will take when the Queen passes.

But as the time of their marriage in 2005, an official statement said it was "intended that The Duchess will be known as HRH The Princess Consort”.

This would make Camilla the first British royal to ever use the title of Princess Consort.

Archie and Lilibet

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children Archie and Lilibet currently do not hold titles or the HRH style.

However, when their grandfather Prince Charles becomes King, they could be entitled to them.

A spokesperson for Debrett's told the Mirror: "In 1917, King George V ordered that only the grandchildren of the monarch would be entitled to use the style of prince or princess and HRH, the only exception to this order was that the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales would also be entitled to be use the style HRH and Prince.

“In 2012, the Queen issued new Letters Patent that the style of HRH and Prince/Princess would be extended to all of Prince William’s children, not just his eldest son.

“Archie's entitlement to use the style of Prince and HRH will come into force when his grandfather Prince Charles becomes King.”
