Prince William is a man of many titles. At the moment, they include His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, His Royal Highness The Earl of Strathearn, and Baron Carrickfergus. And of course, one day, he’ll take the name of King. For now though, instead of any complicated titles his young children call him a sweet nickname.
In 2011 William married Kate Middleton, after having a relationship with her since 2003. The wedding was an extremely high-profile event, as befitting for a future king. In the U.K. alone, 26.3 million people tuned into the event live on television.
That same year, the governments of the Commonwealth decided to change the law with regards to any future royal heirs. From October 28, 2011, royal children were ranked in line to the throne based on the order they were born, not on their gender. Previously, a female child would have been knocked down the line if a brother was born after her.
