Kate Middleton and Prince William will eventually assume bigger roles within the role family with the latter being named as King.

On the online forum site Quora, royal fans couldn’t help but wonder what will happen to the Duchess of Cambridge or the future Queen Consort when her husband dies. Royal fans are convinced that if Middleton wanted to, she would be able to remarry after her husband’s death.

Rob Cover said that Middleton would be allowed to remarry in the event that Prince William dies because there are no legal, statutory, or customary impediments for a widow of any standing to remarry.

Cover also said that Middleton marrying another man wouldn’t be considered insensitive because the premise is that Prince William has already died.

Paul Rodgers said that dowager Queens are allowed to remarry. However, Rodgers also said that Middleton should know and understand that there would be public opinion on when it would be the right time for her to get married again. This means that if marrying another man shouldn’t happen within the next few months after Prince William dies.

Birgit Sybil M. Haukes also said that Middleton would be allowed to get married again after Prince William’s death.

“There is no law that prohibits the widow of a monarch to remarry after he or she has passed away. A law doing so would be a breach of multiple human right laws and a ridiculous breach of women’s rights… Catherine, no matter whom she is/was married to, has the right to marry/divorce whomever she pleases,” she wrote.

Gill Bullen also said that Middleton could remarry after Prince William’s death. However, she found the question to be insensitive.

“Could you not at least ask ‘if he dies’ rather than ‘when he dies?’ Poor young man, you seem indecently keen to hustle him offstage!” she wrote.

Middleton and Prince William have been married since 2011, and they will celebrate their 8th wedding anniversary on April 29.
