• The Queen's death shocked us all
  • After her 70 years in office, many things suddenly changed
  • There are new titles for Prince William, Duchess Kate and Co 

Queen Elizabeth II († 96) died on Thursday, September 8th at the age of 96. On that same day, it was announced that their eldest son Charles (73) is to be the new British king. 

These are the new titles of Prince William, Duchess Kate and Co. 

Queen Elizabeth II is dead and thus Prince Charles now bears the title King Charles III. He decided against changing his name. His wife Duchess Camilla (75) now bears the title "Queen Consort", as Queen Elizabeth II expressed as a personal wish.

Several other family members are also to change their titles after the death of the Queen. The title of Prince William (40) and his wife Kate (40) was extended. They bear the title "Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge" after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

This change has already been made on Duchess Kate and Prince William's social media accounts. After Charles is officially crowned king, William will receive the title of "Prince of Wales". However, this must be officially awarded to him by his father in a proper ceremony.

Also interesting:

When this ceremony will take place is not yet known. Duchess Kate would then receive the title "Princess of Wales". Lady Diana († 36) bore this title before her.

And the children of Prince Harry (37) and Duchess Meghan (41) now receive titles aswell. They are officially prince and princess. But this can change again after Charles' coronation. He has already made it clear that he wants to reduce the number of so-called "key royals".
