In a recent revelation through Prince Harry’s memoir ‘Spare,’ it has come to news that King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla wanted Catherine to change her name. The Princess of Wales, born with the name Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, is often also referred to as Kate Middleton.
So, why did the royal couple want Prince William’s wife to change her name? And did the Princess have to change her name officially? Let’s find out.
Why Did King Charles And Queen Consort Camilla Want Catherine To Change Her Name?
The reason why King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla wanted Catherine to change her name was that there were already too many names with “C” in the royal family. This would have led to confusion as they said, especially for the royal ciphers. Hence they wanted Catherine to spell her name as “Katherine.”
However, Charles and Camilla were not successful in this attempt of theirs, as mentioned in the book of Prince Harry. In addition, Harry also mentions that Charles often used to comment about Catherine’s hair, saying how beautiful it was. She also gets other mentions in Harry’s ‘Spare.’
