Since her marriage to The Prince of Wales, Her Royal Highness uses the title The Duchess of Cornwall, as her husband is also known as The Duke of Cornwall.

When in Scotland, Their Royal Highnesses are known as The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay.
The Duchess of Cornwall was granted a Royal Coat of Arms by The Queen following her marriage to The Prince of Wales.  The Coat of Arms granted to Her Royal Highness is known as an impaled Coat of Arms, and it brings together The Prince of Wales's Coat of Arms with that of The Duchess's father, Major Shand.

In 2012 The Duchess of Cornwall was made a Grand Dame Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, which is an honour made by the Sovereign in recognition of personal service.
