It's Official: Meet The Duke & Duchess Of Cambridge

The Queen has bestowed up William and Kate the title of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  According to the Huffington Post, there are also more titles for the couple.  The Queen also bestowed upon William a Scottish title of Earl of Strethearn and a Northern Ireland title of Baron Carrickfergus, so Kate also becomes the Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus (whew!).  So, if I understand this correctly, when he's in England he is called Duke, in Scotland called Earl and when in Northern Ireland, Baron?  Okay, I think I got it!

P.S. According to The Telegraph, dukedom is the highest rank in the British peerage.
