“At some moment, William is going to become Prince of Wales. At that moment there’s the question, is Kate going to choose to be called Princess of Wales?” said People Now’s royal correspondent Imogen Lloyd-Webber.
While she has every right to take on the title, it is optional.
“Camilla is actually Princess of Wales but, because of Diana, she opted to be the Duchess of Cornwall.”
It will be a long time before we know whether or not Kate will take on the Princess of Wales title, but in the meantime, she’s preparing herself for the future responsibilities that will come from her and William moving up the royal food chain.
“Kate’s been taking on new responsibilities little by little over the last few years, so it won’t be a shock when the time comes,” royal expert Rebecca Long told Us Weekly.
“William and Kate are the favourite royals to take the crown in many generations, so the people of the UK are very excited about it.”
