Kate Middleton's Daughter Will Be a "Princess" Says Queen

Will Kate Have a little Prince or Princess?
If Kate Middleton is pregnant with a baby girl, she will officially be a Princess. And if William and Kate have a little boy, he will carry the royal title of Prince.

While it would be customary for the Royal couple's son to be a Prince, it is a new decree just issued by Queen Elizabeth that a baby girl can now receive the title of Princess.

The reason for this change?  The U.K. government has started the process of updating the laws so that a first-born girl could succeed to the throne regardless of whether or not she is followed by a boy.

The Queen wants to ensure that this baby and any future babies the couple may have will "enjoy the style, title and attribute of royal highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names or with such other titles of honour."
