The document that was released by Clarence House however quashes any entitlement queries, adding in that Kate is in fact a Duchess by title as she married into the Royal family and is not of Royal blood, noting via Royal protocol, which dictates that Kate, just like Princess Diana, “is not entitled to a style preceding her first name.”
