Why Is Kate Middleton Referred To As "Princess" On Prince Louis' Birth Certificate?

Date May 4, 2018

Just like all other newborns across the globe, new royal baby has a birth certificate. And there’s one detail in it that may leave you confused – the occupation of Prince Louis’ parents.


We all know the royal baby’s mom is the Duchess of Cambridge. But in the birth certificate, her occupation is listed as “Princess of the United Kingdom.” So, what is the proper way to refer to her?

Actually, you should not call her Princess Kate or Princess Catherine. Only the children and grandkids of the monarch or monarch’s sons can be princes and princesses, like Prince Harry, Princess Charlotte, or even Princess Eugenie.


But this doesn’t mean the 36-year-old is not a princess of the country. When she tied the knot with Prince William, she assumed the female equivalent of his title. So, technically, she’s also Princess Kate of Wales.

And it’s not the only title bestowed on her, so she has a variety to choose from!


As for the newest addition to the family, the birth certificate gives his full name as well – His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge.


Most likely, the name is an ode to Prince Charles’ great-uncle and Prince Philip’s grandfather.
