Royal baby to get prince/princess of Cambridge title

Baby on Board

Prince William and his wife Catherine’s royal baby is expected within days and, will officially be called a prince or princess of Cambridge following Will and Kate who are officially referred to as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge respectively. Kensington Palace which made the announcement on Tuesday, July 9 says the baby should not be called the prince or princess of Cambridge — without the first name — just as, pre-marriage, William was called Prince William of Wales, rather than prince of Wales, which is his father Prince Charles’s title. The royal couple have not yet revealed the gender or name of the baby. Any children William has will be princes or princesses and enjoy the style of royal highness from birth, following new letters patent issued by Queen Elizabeth at the New Year. Previously, only the eldest son of the eldest son of the prince of Wales — a title bestowed on male heirs apparent — could be styled HRH and bear the title of prince.
