Princess Charlotte is the only daughter of the future king and queen, Prince William and Kate Middleton, which means that Charlotte, based on her place in the succession, could look at a prestigious royal title in recent years.
When her father, the Duke of Cambridge, 39, becomes king, Charlotte, who is the daughter of the king, may stand in line to inherit a particular title to reflect this.
The six-year-old could in the future be given the title The Princess Royal to reflect that she is the eldest daughter of the British sovereign.
The title itself originated in the 17th century and originated from the French royal title Madame Royale.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told TownandCountrymag.com: “The title of Princess Royal is traditionally bestowed on the monarch’s eldest daughter.
“It’s a title that stays for life, so Princess Charlotte will have to wait at least until the death of the current Princess Royale.”
The Queen and Prince Philips’ only daughter Princess Anne is the current Royal Princess and was awarded the title by her mother in 1987.
The title is conferred by the monarch and does not have to be given, but is often given to the eldest daughter of the current monarch.
Since the title is given for life, Charlotte would not be eligible to receive it until after Princess Anne’s death.
In addition to this unique title that the young princess could receive, Charlotte would also stand in line for a new royal title when she marries – but she would still be eligible for the royal princess title, whether she marries or not.
The assessment of royal titles is entirely with the reigning monarch, and in recent years female members of the royal family have not been given a Duchess title – with the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, as one.
Margaret and her husband Antony Armstrong-Jones were made Earl and Countess of Snowdon instead of Duke and Duchess.
Therefore, any title Charlotte receives when William is king will be at his discretion and he could decide to give her a title in his own right.
The young princess was recently reported to be inheriting one of Princess Diana’s “favorite” heirlooms.
Charlotte is queuing up to inherit the late royal’s “favorite” tiara, which she wore on her wedding day to Prince Charles.
The Spencer tiara has been in the family since the 1930s, and it is believed that the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be the next owner.
