Well it seems as if her last name isn’t the only namesake of Miss Middleton’s that’ll be changing. Now that she is on her way to becoming a princess, and potentially even Queen (a poll conducted by YouGov in the Sunday Times granted Prince William the favourable vote), Kate Middleton is reportedly considering that she now be called by her birth name, Catherine.
The likely reason behind Kate’s change of address is due to the royal duties that will soon be on her plate. Ever since the engagement was officially announced, Kate has been referred to by the palace as ‘Catherine.’
“This was not a request by any officials or the Palace. It’s a concerted effort from Kate to be taken more seriously,” US Magazines royal expert Katie Nicholls says.
