Royal expert explains why Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton don't have princess titles
Two royal experts have explained why Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton don't have princess titles.
If you've ever wondered why the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, or the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, aren't referred to as 'Princess', it could have something to do with Camilla Parker-Bowles, also known as the Duchess of Cornwall.
Two royal experts recently discussed this topic during an episode of The Royal Box, a new video series from Yahoo UK.
Victoria Arbiter, a well-known royal commentator and Kate Williams, a historian, recently explained the subject in lengthy detail.
It seems that Camilla took the title Duchess of Cornwall instead of Princess as a mark of respect to the late Princess Diana.
As Camilla made the decision to opt for Duchess, Kate and Meghan's titles have followed suit according to The Express.
As Kate explains:
"That’s why it’s Duchess’ throughout the Royal Family because Camilla is a Duchess".
Kate, with her knowledge as a historian, also explained how Camilla's title may change when Prince Charles becomes King.
In the video, which you can check out in full here, Kate explains:
"There has not been an official notification, and Charles has said in a few interviews, he used the word queen, it’s obviously more Charles’ expectation and wish that she would be queen, but at the moment the official line is that she’ll be princess consort".
