PRINCE William and Kate Middleton want to allegedly SCRAP their royal titles and use their first names as part of a “royal revolution,” fontes afirmam.
The Duke and Duchess want to go by ‘Wills and Kate’ as they’re set to drop royal formalities in a bid to keep the monarchy modern, it’s been reported.
The royal pair want to avoid bows and curtsies in public and rebrand using their first names, according to insiders.
The dramatic switch-up is allegedly to focus on a “modern monarchy” and break away from the “stuffy traditions” of the royal family.
Uma fonte disse ao Sunday Mirror: “They want to try to avoid the bows and curtsies in public, be more approachable, less formal, less stuffy, and break away with a lot of the tradition and focus on a modern monarchy.”
It’s claimed that the “institutional change” was triggered after Kate and William’s tour in the Caribbean – as they’re now vowing to run affairs “The Cambridge Way” after the backlash.

The Duke and Duchess aim to “rip up the rulebook” and ditch old-fashioned methods to show they are royals who can change with the times.
A fonte adicionada: “The general consensus was that the tour seemed out of date, out of touch, too formal and stuffy.
“So now it’s more ‘Wills and Kate’ instead of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge… ‘Just call me Wills’ type of thing.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be “perceived as the royal stars” who will “cement the monarchy’s position globally and secure the Commonwealth”.

Speaking about the tour, the source added: “It was a shock to them all. A real eye-opener.
“This is what prompted institutional change within the monarchy.”
Proving he has his own methods, William has already planned to have around 70 fewer aides when he succeeds Charles as Prince of Wales.
He will instead nearly halve the estimated 137 staff his dad relies on to create a more cost-effective and less formal team.
Wills and Kate will also employ a small staff working on “comfortable and credible” good causes — five or six in total.
There will also be shorter, solo trips such as Kate’s recent visit to Copenhagen, Dinamarca, with her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood.
ROYAL SHAKE UP
Uma fonte disse anteriormente ao The Sun: “William and Kate will modernise how they work. It’s a breath of fresh air.
“They were bruised by attacks that their Caribbean trip harked back to the colonial age. In future they will rip up the rule-book and do things ‘The Cambridge Way’. They’re trying to work out what that will look like.
“It is not a criticism of how it was done in the past. But times are changing.”
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
The recent tour — the first of the Platinum Jubilee — was organised between Kensington Palace and the governments of Belize, Jamaica and Bahamas.
