Kate Middleton will use little-known royal title as Charles crowned in Scotland

2 min read

Kate Middleton and Prince William will be using little-known royal titles at King Charles' Scottish Coronation today (Wednesday, July 5).

The Prince and Princess of Wales will appear alongside Charles and Queen Camilla at a service of thanksgiving and dedication at St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh.

The special ceremony will be full of pomp and pageantry and see Charles presented with the Honours of Scotland – the country's crown jewels – following a procession from the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

It reflects that Charles is not just King of England but also King of Great Britain, following the Union of the Crowns in 1603.

The order of service for the event might confuse some royal watchers as it doesn't appear to feature Kate or William at first glance.

But they actually appear under a different title, one of many the pair inherited after Charles acceded the throne last year.

While they are in Scotland they use their new Scottish titles – the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay.

The title Duke of Rothesay is always reserved for the heir to the throne along with the other Scottish styles – Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.

This means the heir's wife Kate is also known as Countess of Carrick, Baroness of Renfrew and Lady of the Isles.

However, William and Kate will mainly use Duke and Duchess of Rothesay – as this title is higher in rank.

Today's ceremony in Edinburgh is part of the annual Royal Week in Scotland and will kick off with a people's procession where around 100 community groups will collect the honours from Edinburgh Castle.

The procession will be escorted to the cathedral by the Royal Regiment of Scotland and its Shetland pony mascot Corporal Cruachan IV.

Meanwhile, a royal procession will travel from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to the cathedral, with the public lining the Royal Mile to view both processions.

A 21-gun salute will fire from Edinburgh Castle at the end of the St Giles’ service before the royal procession travels back to the palace.
