Why do the press continue to refer to the Duchess of Cambridge as ‘Kate Middleton’?
Two years ago yesterday, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton married Prince William. Euphoria reigned throughout the land and 26 million are said to have watched the ceremony in Britain alone.
Miss Middleton, as she then was, moved from being a ‘commoner’ into the realms of royalty and eventually she is expected to become queen consort.
Though the Middleton family are neither aristocratic or royal, their daughter has in fact been Her Royal Highness Princess William, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus since 29th April 2011. She is no longer “Kate Middleton” and the media truly should cease referring to her as such.
