Royal bride: Kate Middleton and Prince William (III)

Kate Middleton has left behind her commoner roots and her name to become Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince William was given a dukedom – the highest rank in British peerage – on his wedding day by his grandmother the Queen, and will be known from now on as the Duke of Cambridge.

He also became the Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus and Kate will become the Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus – though the titles are expected to be used only rarely, mainly in Scotland and Northern Ireland respectively.
