Princess Charlotte goes by different name at school – and doesn’t use her titles

When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their second child, a beautiful baby girl, six years ago today they named her Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

It was announced that she would be formally known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge thanks to her position as fourth in line to the throne.

While she’ll use her HRH title throughout her life, it’s not exactly very practical for a six-year-old at school so Kate and William have styled it differently.

In the same way that Princes William and Harry took their dad’s title, Wales as their surname when they growing up, George, Charlotte and Louis use Cambridge.

This means the royal youngsters are known as George Cambridge, Charlotte Cambridge and Louis Cambridge.

Kate and William’s older two children are pupils at Thomas’s Battersea, a private school in London which costs £18,195 a year per student.

Both children are said to be thriving there, with staff and fellow pupils giving them no special treatment despite their royal titles.

The duke and duchess are regulars on the school run and William even joins the other mums for workouts at the nearby Chelsea Harbour Club gym for post drop-off workouts.

Last week their little brother Louis started at Willcocks Nursery, which is just up the road from the family’s Kensington Palace home.

It’s ethos is to aim for high standards, excellence and good manners, and the website states: “The most important aspect of the school is that the children are happy.

“We feel that it is extremely important for children to enjoy their first experience of school life and that they are prepared for what comes next.

“By nurturing inquisitive minds and fostering a love of learning the children are encouraged and supported as they develop key skills that prepare them for the next stage of their developmental journey.”

The staff also focus on kindness, team work and independence while following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. They have a well deserved “outstanding” rating from Ofsted.

But the top nursery doesn’t come cheap. The morning school costs £2,250 a term while the afternoon is £2,250 a term. This means it will set parents back £16,950 a year if they want their children to attend for the full day.

The Cambridges shared an adorable video showing one of their fun family days out last week to celebrate Kate and William’s 10th wedding anniversary.

It showed them playing on the beach, climbing a tree and roasting marshmallows near their Norfolk home, where they spent lockdown.
