Prince George is a member of the royal British family, a four-year-old boy has several titles but which surname will Kate and William’s son use at Thomas’s Battersea school is still unclear.
The adorable son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is going to become a pupil at Thomas’s Battersea school this autumn. So, for the parents and teachers, it is time to identify, what the surname will have Prince George in school register.
Prince George was born in 2013, the announcement from Clarence House read that ‘the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis.’ Moreover, Prince George has several titles, being the great-grandchild of the Queen and the grandchild of the Prince of Wales, this four-year-old boy has the title of His Royal Highness, which automatically means that that person does not need to use a surname, but if at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.
Prince George, his surname Mountbatten-Windsor and its history
In 1960, the surname Mountbatten-Windsor was introduced firstly, the official its announcement explained that ‘the Queen’s descendants, other than those with the style of Royal Highness and the title of Prince / Princess, or female descendants who marry, would carry the name of Mountbatten-Windsor.’ This double-barrelled name reflects not only then-Princess Elizabeth’s but Prince Philip’s surnames.
However, it is quite possible that Prince George will not wear Mountbatten-Windsor surname at school papers, instead of that he is able to be George Cambridge. When his father and uncle enrolled in the RAF and the Army respectively, they went by William Wales and Harry Wales.
