They also want to abolish their titles and use their first names as part of their royal revolution, the Sunday Mirror reported.

A source said: “They want to try to avoid bows and curtsies in public, be more approachable, less formal, less stuffy and break with a lot of tradition and focus on a modern monarchy.”

It is claimed that after the backlash to their Caribbean tour in March they want institutional changes and want to run things “the Cambridge way”.

The Duke and Duchess want to “tear the rulebook apart” and ditch old-fashioned methods to show they are royalty who can change with the times.

The source added, “The general consensus was that the tour felt dated, out of touch, overly formal and stuffy.

“So now it’s more like ‘Wills and Kate’ instead of ‘Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’… ‘Just call me Wills’.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be “recognized as the royal stars” who will “consolidate the monarchy’s position worldwide and secure the Commonwealth”.

Speaking of the tour, the source said: “It was a shock to everyone. A real eye opener.

“That triggered institutional change within the monarchy.”

To prove he has his own methods, William has already planned to have around 70 fewer aides-de-camp when he succeeds Charles as Prince of Wales.

Instead, he will almost halve the estimated 137 employees his father relies on to build a lower-cost and less formal team.

Wills and Kate will also employ a small staff working on “comfortable and credible” causes — five or six in all.

There will also be shorter individual trips, such as Kate’s recent visit to Copenhagen, Denmark, with her Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood.

A source previously told The Sun: “William and Kate will be modernizing the way they work. It’s a breath of fresh air.

“They were injured by attacks that traced their Caribbean trip back to colonial times. Going forward, they’re going to rip up the rule book and do things The Cambridge Way.

“They’re trying to figure out what that’s going to be like. It’s not a criticism of how it’s been done in the past. But times are changing.

The latest tour – the first of the Platinum Jubilee – was organized between Kensington Palace and the governments of Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas.

But it was mired in social media scorn and anti-royal protests, which meant some engagements were called off. Kate Middleton and Prince William “want to stop people from bowing to them” to break away from “stuffy traditions”.
