Any decision to give the Duchess the title would be taken by the Queen and the regiment – but appears to have been delayed. A military source told The Sunday Times: ‘The name of the new colonel was due to have been announced on Monday, and it wasn’t the Duchess of Cambridge. ‘That it wasn’t announced… means they’ve been thinking about it again.’ The paper also reported that Andrew is set to lose his role as joint vice-president of the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
