King Charles III announced new titles for his son, Prince William, and his son’s wife, Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
They are now the new prince and princess of Wales, the new king announced in a speech from Buckingham Palace Friday.
“Our new prince and princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations,” King Charles said in the prerecorded message.
William’s mother, Diana, was the last Princess of Wales. Charles’ wife, Camilla, never took the title. With Charles’ accession, her title is now queen consort.
King Charles also mentioned his younger son, Prince Harry, and his wife, Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“I want also to express my love for Harry and Meghan, as they continue to build their lives overseas,” the king said.
