Kate Middleton will receive a new title and will have her own coronation when her husband, Prince William, becomes king.

The Duke of Cambridge is the second-in-line to the throne. He is expected to ascend to kingship after Prince Charles and when that time comes, Middleton will be given the title of the Queen.

According to the Royal website, the Duchess of Cambridge will also be crowned, but the ceremony will be slightly modest. "Unless decided otherwise, a Queen consort is crowned with the King, in a similar but simpler ceremony," the website stated (via Express).

The title Queen consort is given to women who marry sovereigns. However, when a man marries a royal, he will not be king consort because men don't share the rank of their wives. This is the reason Prince Philip is never called king even if his wife is the queen.

"The wife of the king is by tradition a queen," Marlene Koenig told Hello! "The husband of a queen, in most monarchies, has to be created a title. A husband does not share a wife's rank and the same goes for the husbands of Princesses."

Before Middleton becomes the queen consort, she will first inherit Princess Diana and Camilla Parker Bowles' respective titles. According to Francesca Specter, the title Prince of Wales is given to the second-in-line to the throne. At the time, Prince Charles holds the honor, but when he becomes king, Prince William will inherit the role, so as his wife, Middleton.

So, Middleton will be the next Princess of Wales. At the time, the title is strongly associated with Princess Diana. Camilla can technically use it but refused out of respect to Prince William and Prince Harry's mom, and instead chose to be addressed as Duchess of Cornwall.

Middleton will also inherit Camilla's current title. According to Koenig, Middleton will eventually be called HRH The Duchess of "Cornwall and Cambridge."

In related news, Koenig claimed earlier that the Queen has the custody of her great-grandchildren. So, Prince William and Middleton have no custody of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly not have custody of their future kids, too. However, Joe Little said otherwise.

"It is nothing more than a royal prerogative and is archaic and would have little bearing today," Little said. "The circumstances would have to be pretty extreme for the Queen to invoke it on behalf of her great-grandchildren. Given that there are parents, and grandparents alive – not to mention all the aunts and uncles – there is a huge support structure already in place for the great-grandchildren."
