It seems George and Louis will have to wait for quite some time before they are bestowed the Duke titles.
Duke of Cambridge. Duke of Sussex. Duke of York. It seems that every senior royal has a fancy title to go with their royal status. But how does one get it? In the case of Prince William and Prince Harry, the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex respectively, they got their titles when they finally got married. And that seems to be the usual protocol. So that means that it will be some time before Prince George, 5, and Prince Louis, 7 months, get their titles.
But when they eventually do, what might they be? According to some royal insiders, ‘Clarence’ is apparently available and the Duke of Clarence title “hasn’t been used for a long time and it’s been sort of tainted by bad luck,” Charles Kidd, the editor of Debrett’s Peerage & Baronetage, said in a statement that The Telegraph once cited. “Connaught,” “Cumberland,” “Teviotdale,” and “Albany” are also reportedly up for grabs. To be honest none of these sound particularly cool.
Now that we have covered Prince William and Kate’s two boys, what about Princess Charlotte, their daughter? Charlotte, 3, will most likely get Princess Anne’s coveted Princess Royal title, however, she will have to wait until her father William becomes king and will most likely earn the title after getting married herself.
Either way, these three are getting their titles for sure, with everyone else also getting new titles when the Queen abdicates or passes away, god forbid. When that happens Prince Charles could become King Charles III (or choose from lots of other names), Prince William will get his father’s Prince of Wales title, and Kate will take over the late Princess Diana‘s Princess of Wales title. At least that’s what is currently expected.
