William and Kate update name of Royal Foundation to include new titles

The new Prince and Princess of Wales have updated the name of their Royal Foundation and social media pages to reflect the new titles.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s new titles were announced on Friday (9 September) by King Charles III in his first television broadcast as the new monarch.

It comes after Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday (8 September) at Balmoral Castle, at the age of 96.

The Prince of Wales title was held by the King for the past 64 years and has now been passed to William.

Meanwhile, Kate has become the first person since Diana, Princess of Wales, to use the title. Diana was given the title when she married Charles III in 1981.

The couple’s philanthropic and charitable organisation was previously known as The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

An update on the website now shows it is known as The Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princess of Wales.

When it was first established, the foundation was named The Royal Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.

It later changed in 2012 to The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, following William and Kate’s wedding in April 2011.

After Harry married Meghan in May 2018, the foundation’s name changed again to The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
