After Charles becomes King, the title of Duke of Cornwall will pass to William, and Catherine will be known as the Duchess of Cornwall. She will be Princess of Wales only if Charles confers the title of Prince of Wales upon William. Prince of Wales isn't an inherited title, and it's not necessarily "passed on" It must be conferred on the eldest son of the Reigning Monarch, by the Monarch.
The poster "Anonymous" knows that here is no such thing as a "Queen Father". Carole Middleton won't become a Queen Mother, and Mike Middleton won't become a Queen Father. When Charles becomes King, there will no longer BE a Queen. There is no such title as "Queen Mother", and there never has been. The press began referring to Queen Elizabeth's mother as "Queen Mother" in order to avoid confusion about which woman they were writing about. The Queen and her mother both had the same first name, and they were both Queens.

Kate will be granted both of those titles when Charles is King. And when Kate becomes Queen, Carole Middleton will become the Queen Mother. Mike Middleton will become the Queen Father.

When Charles becomes king, he will bestow William the Prince of Wales, Earl of Chester. William automatically becomes, as the monarch's eldest son, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.
Catherine assumes William's titles and styles, as wives do according to title protocol. So, she becomes Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Carrick, Baroness Renfrew, Lady of the Isles, and Princess and Great Steward of Scotland,as soon as Chalres becomes king and William assumes the automatic titles of the male heir to the throne. She becomes Princess of Wales when William is made Prince of Wales. William also will be bestowed Earl of Chester at this time so Kate assumes the Countess of Chester title.
Catherine's parents do not become Queen Mother or Queen Father when William assumes the throne. The Middletons are not royals, not titled. There is no such title as Queen Father. Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, was Queen Mother by choice--she did not want to be called Queen Dowager and chose Queen Mother as her styling--she was the widowed Queen Consort and mother of the Queen Regnant.
Catherine will never be Queen Regnant-- a royal mother could use the title if she is mother of the reigning queen . Catherine only will be Queen Consort. no powers to reign.

Clearly you haven't grasped the idea that Catherine is currently Duchess of Cambridge, so why complicate the situation by wondering what she will be titled after Charles becomes King (assuming he does)?

Does it really matter since people like you will continue to call her "Kate Middleton" regardless of what her official title is?

Automatically becomes the Duchess of Cornwall (as her husband is then the eldest son of the monarch and accedes to the dukedom) but would have to wait for William to be made the Prince of Wales before taking the title Princess of Wales, when she also becomes the Countess of Chester.
