King Charles Announces Williams, Kate As Prince, Princess Of Wales

Williams and his wife, Kate, have been given the titles Prince and Princess of Wales by Britain’s new King, Charles III. They were formally the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

For the first time since Queen Elizabeth II’s passing at age 96, the King announced this as he spoke to the British people.

“As my Heir, William now assumes the Scottish titles which have meant so much to me. He succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the responsibilities for the Duchy of Cornwall which I have undertaken for more than five decades,” he said.

“Today, I am proud to create him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I have been so greatly privileged to bear during so much of my life and duty.

“With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the center ground where vital help can be given”.

The king also praised his second son, Harry, and his wife, Meghan.

He claims that he wishes the Duke and Duchess success as they pursue other endeavors outside of the country.

Less than a day had passed since the death of Queen Elizabeth II when Charles gave his first speech. The late Queen ruled for 70 years before passing away at 96.

Charles, Anna, Andrew, and Edward were her four children; she also left behind a sizable number of grandkids and great-grandchildren.
