The royal couple has adopted King Charles’ moniker, which is part of a tradition that when the reigning monarch dies, those in succession to the throne move up in place and pass their existing titles down.
It is also likely that Prince William and the Duchess will also become the Prince and Princess of Wales, which is the title given to the next in line to the crown.

King Charles and his first wife, Princess Diana, were previously given this by the Queen.
As via Page Six, author of ‘Raising Royalty: 1000 Years of Royal Parenting’, Carolyn Harris, said: “The new King will have to invest [William] as Prince of Wales, so likely there’ll be an investiture at Caernarfon Castle, as there was for Prince Charles in 1969.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge have already updated their social media channels to include their new titles.
Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, were at Balmoral on the day of the Queen’s passing, as well as her four children.
The Duchess was not present as she was back in London with her children, who had their first day of school, as they recently moved to Lambrook Private School.
King Charles III released a statement regarding his mother’s death, which read: “The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.”
