Will Prince George’s Future Wife Be The Queen of England?

We adore watching Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton’s precious children grow up in the spotlight. Though we haven’t seen much of their youngest son, Prince Louis, their older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte already have their own hilarious and distinct personalities. While Prince George seems shyer and reserved like his grandfather, Prince Charles, Princess Charlotte is boisterous and rambunctious showing the spunk and outgoing attitude of her uncle, Prince Harry in his younger years.

It’s incredible to see the next generation of the British Royal Family as they grow up. It’s also nice to know that as they get older and step into their own, they won’t have some of the same restrictions that were placed upon their grandparents, or even their parents. For Prince George, in particular, who is third in line for the throne after his grandfather and father, he will have the opportunity to love whomever he wants whether they are from common or royal blood. When Prince George becomes the King of England in the distant future, will his wife be the queen?

A royal title

Since Prince George will be the King of England and he’s a male, his future spouse will automatically receive a royal title. In fact, no matter if she is from common or royal blood his future wife will get the queen title. For example, his grandmother, the late Princess Diana was of royal blood and was given the title princess upon her marriage to Prince Charles. Therefore, if the pair had remained married and Princess Diana had lived to see Charles become king, she would have been his consort with the title Queen.

If Prince George marries a commoner, like his mother, Duchess Kate Middleton, she will be given the title, Queen Consort. It should be noted that while the wives of kings can be queens, the husbands of queens cannot be kings. Eventually, Duchess Kate might also be known as the Queen Mother as well.

A hidden future

Though we all know the fate that awaits Prince George, at just five-years-old, he has no idea that he is in line to sit on the throne. Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton have decided they want their son to have as  “normal as possible upbringing.” Prince William previously said, “There’ll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in, in the world.”

Royal insider Catherine Mayer who authored the book, Charles: The Heart of a King told E! News, “With George, they are trying to delay that moment of realization and give him normality before they thrust this on him. But it will be, nevertheless, part of his upbringing both in terms of what he sees his parents and grandparents doing and probably quite soon a beginning of an understanding that he is in public life and what that means.”

Since Prince George is a male, unlike his sister, Princess Charlotte, his future children will also get Royal Highness (HRH) titles as well.
