    What will we now be calling her?

    Officially she is the Duchess of Cambridge but who really thinks she'll be called that?

    BBC keep calling her Catherine now.....

    Yea I know what you mean. It will probably take a lot of getting used to as well.

    It will probably depend on which newspapers you read! :p I saw somewhere that she will officially be 'Princess Catherine' from now on.

    Catherine? That's just daft when she's been getting called Kate in the media for years :confused: Fair enough, proper name for the ceremony and anything official but that's just silly

    Princess Kate would certainly sound better :p Catherine is a lovely name but I don't see the point in making her name so formal now

    I believe she choose to be known as Catherine now. I think...My grandson prefers David right now but I bet by the time he's 25 he goes by Dave. She'll always be Kate to many as that is how we first met her via newscasts only time will tell

    Kate can't just be princess Kate, as she is not a princess in her own right. She would have to be Princess William of Wales. She is now Duchess of Cambridge/Countess of Strathearn :)

    Just like Williams mother was officially the Princess of Wales but was always called by her unofficial title of Princess Di or Princess Diana. Even after the divorce when her HRH title was removed she was still, and always will be, Princess Diana.

    Kate will be called whatever her royal subjects want her to be, no amount of flannel from Buck Palace will change that.

    Not quite sure why you've put that last bit in bold as it was just a general comment not directed at anyone.

    Prior to that, I merely responded to your comment about being called a Princess when she wasn't one by birth.

    I am :confused:

    Technically, yes. Her title will be Princess William of Wales, but he will likely be given a new title, as well, and she'll probably be most commonly styled as the Duchess of ..... or the Countess of.
