Will Kate Middleton ever become the Queen Mother? Royal expert discusses title change

2 mins read

When the Queen dies one day and members move up the ranks, royal titles will change for many members of the family we have come to know over the years. But how will Kate Middleton’s title change?

Over 10 years ago, Kate was granted the titles of Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, and Lady Carrickfergus by Queen Elizabeth II.

However, when (or if) Charles becomes King, her titles will change to become akin to those once held by Princess Diana.

It is very likely that since her husband, Prince William, will become the new Prince of Wales, Kate will inherit the title of Princess of Wales.

Diana’s famous title was technically passed onto Camilla Bowles when she married Charles, but out of respect, she uses the title of Duchess of Cornwall instead.

Looking even further ahead, what will Kate be called when William becomes King of England?

Royal experts are torn over her regal name, while some have speculated that she will likely be known as Queen Catherine, but experts agree that she will be referred to as the “Queen consort”.

Kate has previously been hailed as the ideal “Queen-in-waiting”, and the perfect future consort to her husband, the second-in-line to the throne.

Looking morbidly even further forward though, one royal author has suggested she might gain the title of Queen mother if her husband tragically passes.

Historically, the Queen Mother did exactly this by moving to Clarence House when the Queen took the throne in 1953.
