King Charles III’s titles handed to Prince William in full
The death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 saw her son Prince Charles ascend the throne as King Charles III. His eldest child Prince William became heir apparent to the throne, and he has assumed many of the titles Charles formerly held.
What titles have now passed from Charles to William?
When the late Queen ascended the throne in 1952, her son and heir Prince Charles automatically became the Duke of Cornwall.
He also automatically took on the Scottish titles of Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.
The Dukedom of Cornwall and these Scottish titles automatically passed to Prince William when his father ascended the throne as King Charles III.

Prince Edward was created the Earl of Wessex by the Queen when he married Sophie Rhys-Jones in 1999.
The Queen also bestowed him the Scottish title of Earl of Forfar to mark his 55th birthday in 2019.
The Queen and Prince Philip wished for the Duke of Edinburgh title to be given to their youngest son in the future.
The Palace said at the time: “The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince of Wales have also agreed that Prince Edward should be given the Dukedom of Edinburgh in due course when the present title now held by Prince Philip eventually reverts to the Crown.”
