Since he was born in 1982, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, has been second in line to the British throne.
After his father Charles III became King of Great Britain, William is now the heir to the throne, reports the BBC.
He also became Duke of Corneul, and his wife Catherine a duchess. They will become the Prince and Princess of Wales. The title was last held by Princess Diana, as Charles III’s wife Camilla relinquished it as a mark of respect.
William and Kate’s first-born son, 9-year-old George, is now second in the line of succession.
