I’m getting a little irritated at seeing “Princess Kate” pop up in television and print news stories, not to mention online. She is not a princess. She is the Duchess of Cambridge. She may also be referred to as Her Royal Highness.
If and when Wills succeeds his father as Prince of Wales, then Kate would become Princess of Wales, and I will accept, even though it’s not correct, Princess Kate. She’d have the title to support its use.
I am also sick to death of reading “Prince William and Kate Middleton” are doing such-and-such. No. She is married now, and her married name is properly Kate Mountbatten-Windsor.
Disney tradition notwithstanding, this is the way it is.
