    Kate Middleton, Prince William And Other Royal Family Members To Receive New Titles

    There are a multitude of new titles awaiting the royal members. It was on August 4 that Buckingham Palace and King Charles III announced new military appointments for nine members of the royal family. The members already have an array of titles but a new range of military affiliations will also be added to their names.

    The King, Queen Camilla, Prince William, Princess of Wales, Prince Edward; Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, Princess Anne, Prince Richard, and Birgette, the Duchess of Gloucester will all be awarded their new titles. The new appointments are going to be reflective of the connection between the Royal Family and the Armed Forces. Here’s more.

    The 41-year-old Kate Middleton will become the Commodore-in-Chief of the Fleet Air Arm, Colonel-in-Chief of the 1st Queen’s Dragoon Guards, and Royal Honorary Air Commodore of Royal Air Force Coningsby. The last title is much sentimental to the Princess as one of her grandfathers served in the Royal Air Force.

    According to Hello!, Captain Peter Middleton had accompanied Prince Philip in 1962 during an aerial tour of South America. In addition, the Prince of Wales also flew as an RAF Search and Rescue pilot from 2010 to 2013 at the RAF Valley in Wales.

    Prince William has also been given three appointments. The Duke of Cambridge will take up the titles of Colonel-in-Chief, The Mercian Regiment; Colonel-in-Chief, The Army Air Corps; and Royal Honorary Air Commodore, RAF Valley, where he had previously been a pilot.
