Amid Prince Harry’s Royal Exit, Britain’s Prince William Was Given a New Royal Title by the Queen
Britain’s Prince William is now the Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. The Duke of Cambridge, who is second in line to the British throne, was appointed this title by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, on January 25, 2020.
This is another addition to a long list of titles and appointments that have been conferred to the 37-year-old prince. Aside from being the Duke of Cambridge alongside his wife, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, William is also the Earl of Strathearn, Baron Carrickfergus, and the Queen’s Personal Aide-de-Camp, among many other titles.
Prior to his appointment, the role was previously held by Richard Scott, who is also the 10th Duke of Buccleuch and 12th Duke of Queensberry. Scott took over the role from Queen Elizabeth’s only daughter and William’s aunt, Princess Anne
The Royal Exit
A few days into the New Year, Prince Harry and his wife, American retired actress Meghan Markle, announced that they decided to step down from their roles as senior members of the British royal family. They revealed that they are going to pursue a more independent life in both the United Kingdom and North America alongside their 9-month-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Following the announcement and the media frenzy, the Queen and her family finalized an agreement in January supporting the decision of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. After a transition period that would last until the spring of 2020, Harry and Meghan will not be able to use their “Royal Highness” titles. They also need to repay the cost of renovating Frogmore Cottage, which will be their home in the U.K.
Still Busy With Royal Duties
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton are still active senior members of the royal family. On behalf of Queen Elizabeth II, they recently hosted a reception for the U.K.-Africa Investment Summit in London, which Harry also attended.
During the event, William delivered a heartfelt speech talking about their connection with Africa. The royal father of three said that it was where their dad, Prince Charles, took them after their mother, Princess Diana died. He also proposed to his wife in the African country of Kenya.
William and Kate got married in a grandiose royal wedding in 2011. They now have three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. The royal couple recently attended the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, which was held on February 2.
