Prince William’s eldest daughter Princess Charlotte is just six years old yet but she already has a prestigious royal title bestowed upon her. Her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have given her the formal title of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.
However, Prince William has set to ascend to the throne, making him King and his wife Queen. There is a good chance for Princess Charlotte to get a royal title even more impressive than her existing.
Princess Royal is a title typically give to the monarch’s oldest daughter. The term has originally used in the 1600s to replicate the French royal title of “Madame Royale”. Princess Anne, the Queen’s lone child and the present Princess Royal has bestowed the title in 1987.
Until the death of the present Princess Royal, Princess Charlotte will not be able to assume the title of Princess Royal. Charlotte Cambridge is the name she goes by while she attends Thomas’ School in Battersea despite her royal rank.
Because of his father’s rank as Prince of Wales, her father continued the family tradition by adopting the surname Wales in school and the military. Anyone who needs to use the surname Mountbatten-Windsor is required to do so by law.
