I have never seen anything like it; why do you think it is she is always called Kate Middleton; her maiden name still; while expecting their second child? It is always Kate Middleton. Why not Duchess Kate if they don't know her name. (Which I readily admit I do not but surely the British media would know it?)

Yes, that's probably it. I am sure they know her name, but more know her by Middleton.
It just seems so disrespectful to me. I have heard her simply called Middleton a couple of times. I am sure I wouldn't like it and it just surprises me that every year passes and still she cannot be called by her husband's name.
The Popular Press works to different rules to the rest. For the 'proper' titles consult Debretts (as the official reference for the peerage and royals).
Maybe so; technically but the world would have see Diana as princess no matter who she married or what she did.
That's the tabloids for you. They saw her as a sort of 'crusader' or 'innovaror', just as Princess Michael was called 'Princess Pushy' by them because of her attitude problem. But then they both had 'attitude problems'..
As wife of a Prince of Wales Diana was Princess of Wales. Kate is Duchess of Cambridge, Fergie' was Duchess of York, Edward's wife Sophie is Duchess of Wessex, Camilla is Duchess of Cornwall, Anne is Princess Royal as first female child of a monarch
I know really. I just find it very rude myself and it puzzles me how the media chooses who they will be nice to and who not. I would like to see just one reporter do the right thing. It seems they refuse to make the same courtesies as they did to Di
I find it kind of tragic that Princess Anne chose not to give her children titles. I wonder how history will treat them. I think I would have resented it if I were in any of their places.
Having married the Duke of Cambridge she is no more his 'chattels' than the Queen is Philip's. That's not how they see it these days. Henry VIII ain't king no more.
