Kate Middleton became the Princess of Wales, after she was named by her father-in-law King Charles III in his first speech since acceding the throne on Friday, September 9. Kate’s new title is very significant, as she’s the first member of the royal family to be named the Princess of Wales in 25 years. The title was previously held by King Charles’ ex-wife and her husband Prince William’s late mother Princess Diana, who died in 1997.
During his first address, King Charles gave Prince William the new title of Prince of Wales, as the heir apparent to the new king. “Today, I am proud to create him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I’ve been so greatly privileged to bear during so much of my life and duty. With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will—I know—continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the center ground where vital help can be given,” Charles said.
