William And Kate Are Now The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge [Photos]

Catherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Westminster Abbey

You are now free to direct your pop culture attention back to Mariah Carey’s never ending pregnancy.

After weeks of media-induced anticipation, the world witnessed the wedding of Prince Williams of Wales and Catherine Middleton this morning. And after all of that, she doesn’t even get to be a princess, technically.

Kate emerged from Westminster Abbey as Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge.

The newly-wed royal was handed the title as her husband Prince William was given the title — the highest rank in British peerage — by his grandmother, the Queen.

William, 28, will also become the Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, which means Kate will become the Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus.

All titles are a gift from the Queen and it was up to the monarch to choose which one to bestow on her grandson and his new wife.

Tradition dictates that Royal men receive a title on their wedding — and often more than one.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince William of Wales.

“His titles will be Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus.

“Prince William thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge and Miss Catherine Middleton on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.”

As well as a duchess, Kate, 29, is also technically Princess William of Wales.

Yes: to be a princess, she has to even give up her first name.

Catherine wore a long-sleeved, sweetheart-neckline gown with lace overlay, designed by Sarah Burton, creative director of luxury at Alexander McQueen. It had an almost 9-foot train. Her “something borrowed” was a tiara from the Queen of England.

This will never be your life.

  • belovedb

    She will get the title of princess when Prince Charles becomes King. Camilla currently holds the title of Princess. There is an order of things in Royal families.

    • chery

      belovedb camilla is not a princess as she is a second marriage and was divorced she can never become princess she is duchess of cornwall.

    • Vision

      @chery, how are you going to post correct someone with incorrect info. Camilla is Princess, she however refused to use the title in honour of Diana and fear of backlash from the people. She instead goes by the title Duchess of Cornwall…but she is indeed Princess Charles…However she can never be queen..even if Charles ascends to the throne, she will most likely be Queen Consort or something.

  • Maya

    Congratulations to the Royal Couple.

    Who gives a $hit about these pale skinned frauds!

  • Shanice

    People kill me with the “who cares?” You obviously cared enough to read and comment on it.

    • Sasha Flop

      WHO CARES…about them or what u think…

  • peter illyich

    thank you shanice!

  • Felecia

    Actually, Camilla is the Duches of Cornwall. On order to technically become prince or princess when you are married and use ur first name you had to have been born into royalty. Princess Diana was called a princess because her father was an earl. Just did a research project on the subject why is why I know that. But anywho, why should any of us truly care about any of this? We declared our independence in 1776 so it doesn’t really affect (effect?) us.

    I can imagine that William wishes his mother was still alive to see him get married. And Kate is such an elegant and beautiful girl. Good for them though.

  • Mrs.Mimi

    Have a heart! These 2 just got married. I’m pretty sure if it were you up there, they’d wish you a happy marriage as well. I have never witnessed so much ignorance in my life until I stumbled across this sad, color struck, rascist and black woman bashing website.

  • ProudLatina

    Aww Love. Good Luck to them, now where’s my Prince ?😦

  • Soul Touch

    Congrats to them.

    Many of us have seen Diana’s children grow up before our eyes. I always thought William was quite handsome, but his brother Harry has certainly grown into his looks.

    In these pics, William looks so much like Diana…I still remember the day she died.

    Good luck to them…they’ve been together for almost a decade as a couple.

  • Dolly

  • Ariel

    Her dress was not too over the top, it was quite simple but beautiful, she is gorgeous. Lets hope she won’t be pressured too much and looses her mind, I wish them a happy life.

  • IS

    Congrats to them. Never was that into Prince William. But, his brother, the red head, is really handsome. And, unlike his brother, he seems like he would be hella fun. I wonder who will be Prince Harry wife.

    • IHATEBROKEPEOPLE

      Prince William has to set the example. Thanks to Fergie and Company the Royals were starting to look like a bunch of clowns.

      His grandmother probably pulled him to the side and told him:”look, your mother was a wonderful woman, but she took us back 20 years with her shenanigans, if you do anything of the sort, you will end up just like she did.”

      When you’re a part of a royal family, you have to be careful how you portray yourself because it is INDEED a reflection on EVERYONE!

      I couldn’t believe the huge bald spot that I saw on William’s head. Poor Kate is about to be scrutinized for using the wrong toilet paper. That’s a serious title to have, she must have strong jaws because I just KNEW they were finished when they broke up the last time.

      Good Luck to them, they both look like cheaters to me though..

  • Johnny'sgirl

    Very beautiful and elegant! Congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple.

  • courtney

    Good Luck to William And Kate who looked like a cross between a brunette Diana & Princess Grace who about 13 months before she married prince Rainier won the best actress oscar. they need as much luck as possible as the last royal marriage in england to stand the test of time is Will’s grandmother the queen & his grandfather The duke of Edenborough

  • The Commenter Formerly Known as White Devil

    Dang, the British have such a complicated system of titles and peerages and orders of chivalry. How do they keep it straight? It all seems archaic, but I guess it sells.

  • The Commenter Formerly Known as White Devil

    I predict there will be about 90 comments and about half will say “who cares?”
