A DAUGHTER for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be given the title of Princess, the Queen has decided.
Rules had meant a girl born to William and Kate would be known as Lady, not Her Royal Highness, and only a first-born boy could get the Royal title.
But the Queen — by issuing new Letters Patent — has changed the rules so her great-grandchild, due this summer, has a title suitable for a future monarch.
Royal expert Charles Kidd said the alteration was expected.
He said the amendment “seemed logical” to end discrimination against women succeeding to the throne.
