William & Kate aren’t down with their new royal titles. No ‘duke and duchess’ for these two!
Prince William and Kate Middleton are kicking tradition to the curb — again! Even though the newlyweds have been recently addressed as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William stated at the wedding that he wants to retain his princely title. And you know what that means: Kate will be a princess, after all!
William and Kate’s story is told in the new issue of Vanity Fair, which points out that the couple’s big decision will probably ruffle more than a few royal feathers. The mag points out that Countess Sophie of Wessex originally wanted to be a princess, but was forbidden to do so by Queen Elizabeth.
