Duchess or Princess?

Actually, the royal mom would not be called Princess Kate or Princess Catherine. Only the children and grandchildren of the monarch or her kids can be princes and princesses, like Prince Harry, Princess Charlotte, or even Princess Eugenie.

But this doesn’t mean the Duchess 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.

Well, everything is pretty simple, right? Even if she is officially called a Duchess, official documents would still refer to as a Princess. Cool!
