While some gals out there moan over the fact that they are “always a bridesmaid, but never a bride,” Kate Middleton is crying her sorrows away with a tub of rocky road ice cream (or Cadbury chocolates), considering that fact that she will always be a princess, but never a Queen. Yeah, and you thought your job title sucked!
While Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s future daughter might have a chance of being the future Queen of England, Mama Kate is totally being skipped over for the job. Here’s what we’re reading:
The Duchess of Cambridge is facing the prospect of never becoming Prince William’s Queen. MP John Hemming is attempting to ensure all spouses of reigning monarchs are officially known as Prince or Princess Consorts, with an amendment to the repeal of ancient royal primogeniture laws.
The wives of ruling Kings currently become Queen Consorts but the husbands of female monarchs have no right to any title – which is why the current Duke of Edinburgh is not known as King Philip.
The Liberal Democrat’s Early Day Motion says the Duchess of Cambridge would lose out on being called Queen Catherine when her husband William is crowned King, reported the Sunday Express.
‘It’s not right that a Queen Regnant is treated as less important than a King Regnant,’ he told the Sunday Express. ‘It seems sensible we resolve this issue when dealing with the primogeniture issue.’
The proposal also means Camilla would become Princess Consort when Prince Charles becomes King – which Clarence House has always insisted upon, following the couple’s previous divorces.
No matter what title Kate holds, we still love her. And we’re going to love here even more when we get to see what kind of fantastic mother she is! What do you think, Babble readers?
