What would happen if Kate Middleton divorced Prince William?

Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were plagued with cheating rumors. Prince William allegedly cheated on his wife with their family friend, Rose Hansbury.

Many wonder what would happen if Middleton decided to leave her husband. According to Perry Carpenter, here are some of the changes that would take place should the couple go separate ways.

Middleton would get a new home

If Middleton were to divorce Prince William, they would be living in different houses. The couple would still share their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. However, Middleton would be living in a separate building. She would get a new home.

Middleton would receive financial support from Prince William

Aside from their arrangement with their kids, the future king would need to provide Middleton with financial stability for the rest of her life. The financial assistance Middleton would receive depends on how long they are married and it would not be a small sum.

When Prince Charles and Princess Diana divorced, the latter was heartbroken. During a phone conversation with a friend, the late Princess of Wales cried when their divorce was finalized and she comforted herself with a joke about the $26 million divorce settlement she would receive.

“I remember when she got her decree absolute from Charles, she called me up in tears. I said ‘You’ll be fine,’” Princess Diana’s friend Nish Joshi said.

“Then after a moment she collected herself and said, ‘Well, I suppose £21million is not bad for an ex-nanny,’ which I thought was cute,” Joshi continued.

Middleton would get a new title

At present, Middleton is the Duchess of Cambridge. When Prince Charles becomes the new king and Prince William becomes the new Prince of Wales, she will gain the Princess of Wales title, and then the Queen Consort. However, if they split, Middleton would lose her title and ranking within the royal family.

Princess Diana was stripped of her HRH title after her divorce from Prince Charles. Prince William promised his mom that he would return the honor when he takes over the throne.

They would be able to remarry

Once they are officially divorced, Prince William and Middleton would be free to remarry. However, they would not be able to tie the knot under the authority of the Church of England.
