Prince George Could Be Granted New Title To Mark Milestone
Prince George Alexander Louis is the eldest child of Prince William and Kate and will one day become the King of UK. The young Prince was born on July 22, 2013, and is third-in-line to the throne.
But before George takes the throne, he will most likely be given a different title as a part of a special tradition.
Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne for 68 years and during her reign, she has honoured royal customs and traditionally bestowed a special wedding gift on male members of the family.
Her Majesty has granted her sons and grandsons the received dukedom titles upon their marriage. A dukedom is the highest title in the royal family, landing above marquess, earl, viscount and baron.
When Prince William married Catherine Middleton in 2011, he was given the title Duke of Cambridge. He also has a Scottish title- the Earl of Strathearn and a Northern Irish title- Baron Carrickfergus.
Although Prince George is still very young, if one day he marries, he will gain a Dukedom title.
The Other Question Is Will Prince George Become Duke of Cambridge?
Once Prince William inherits the British Throne, his Duke of Cambridge title won’t be passed onto George, because it will merge with the crown.
If Prince William dies before becoming king, then Prince George and Prince Louis too are eligible to inherit that title.
When it comes to Princess Charlotte she won’t be typically granted duchess title. But, she might receive another very special title. When Prince William is crowned King, Princess Charlotte will eventually become Princess Royal.
Princess Royal is a substantive title awarded by a British monarch to his or her eldest daughter.
However, the Princess won’t immediately take on the title as the title is currently being held by Princess Anne.
