The 35-year-old Prince and his 36-year-old wife were given the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by the Queen when they married back in 2011.

But not many people know that the much-loved couple are also known by two other royal monikers.

According to The Mirror, you won’t hear Prince William and Kate Middleton referred to as a Duke or Duchess when they travel to either Scotland or Ireland.

In fact, when they set foot in Scotland, they’re supposed to be called by their official titles of the Earl and Countess of Strathearn.

When they visit Ireland, they’re called the Baron and Lady Carrickfergus – a title which actually became extinct in 1883 but was revived for the prince and his new wife in 2011.

And Prince William and Kate Middleton aren’t the only ones with numerous royal titles.

Prince Charles and Camilla are known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay when they’re in Scotland and Prince Harry is officially supposed to be called Prince Henry of Wales.

However, when he marries Meghan Markle in May, it’s thought he will be given the title of the Duke of Sussex.
