The Prince and Princess of Wales


William, Prince of Wales

Catherine, Princess of Wales

Prince William and his wife Catherine have been named the new Prince and Princess of Wales by King Charles III.

The couple will also take the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall titles—previously held by the King and Camilla, the new Queen Consort. William also inherited the title of Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland. Catherine will also receive the title of Duchess of Rothesay.

William and Catherine recently left their London home at Kensington Palace to live at Adelaide Cottage at Windsor.

Adelaide Cottage

Moving away from central London to the quiet area of Windsor was aimed to give their young children as close to a normal life as possible. Due to the small size of the cottage, their Nanny Maria Borrallo is not living with them. She resides with other household staff at a nearby property.

Adelaide Cottage

The 4-bedroom Adelaide Cottage was built in 1831 as a summer retreat for Queen Adelaide, the wife of King William IV. One of the early occupants of the cottage was Peter Townsend, the onetime great love of Princess Margaret.

Since they are now the Prince and Princess of Wales, they are set to move to Windsor Castle, but are expected to delay this move to prevent more upheaval for their children. The couple will keep the 20-room home at Kensington Palace as their office working base and also their Anmer Hall manor in Norfolk.

I look forward to following the lifestyle of the Prince and a Princess and, of course, Catherine’s fabulous fashion!
