hukusyuu-mobile.com/wp-content/track/ A duke or duchess is the member of nobility that ranks right bellow the monarch. Often princess and princesses will hold dukedoms, just like Kate and Will. Prince Charles is also the Duke of Cornwall, and while his wife Camilla technically has the title Princess of Wales, she goes by her other title, Duchess of Cornwall. In the UK, the husband of the reigning queen is called a prince.
The titles prince and princess also go to the children of the monarch, and in Queen Elizabeth increased her daughter Princess Anne's title to Princess Royal. The grandchildren born to sons of the monarch for example, Prince William or Princess Beatrice also get the title prince or princess, but grandchildren born to a daughter for example, Zara Phillips do not automatically. So just because you have a king or queen as a grandparent doesn't mean you're a prince or princess! Queen Elizabeth II also recently decreed that all children born to the eldest son of the Prince of Wales aka Prince William will have the title prince or princess, thus we have Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
As with Kate, the wife of a prince will get the title princess up on marriage, however, the husband of a princess will not be called a prince. In , King George V decided to officially change everyone's last name to Windsor, after the castle, to get rid of the German-sounding house name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, but Queen Elizabeth II and her husband wanted their direct decedents to have a different last name than the extended family. Basically, if you're a queen, king, prince, or princess, you don't have a last name, but if you need one, it's Mountbatten-Windsor.
