Prince William and Kate's children attend Lambrook school in Berkshire

What the Prince and Princess of Wales’s children, George, Charlotte and Louis are called at school

The children of The Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, enrolled in Lambrook, their new school, last September.

In the coming days, as the school break comes to an end, the kids will return to their classrooms after spending some time with their grandfather, King Charles, at Balmoral in Scotland.

At the prep school in Berkshire, George, Charlotte, and Louis will now be in Years 6, 4, and 1, respectively.

Despite being three of the most well-known kids in the world, Prince William and Catherine’s children aren’t addressed by their royal titles at school.

In a nod to their parents’ new titles, the Prince and Princess of Wales, which they were given after Queen Elizabeth II’s passing in September 2022, the siblings are simply referred to as George Wales, Charlotte Wales, and Louis Wales by their school friends.

This also applied to Prince William and Prince Harry, who adopted the surname Wales, formerly held by their father Prince Charles, as their last name in school. Royal family members typically don’t use a surname; instead, they are only addressed in public as His or Her Royal Highness and their first name.

In addition, they may be referred to by the name of their residence, such as Windsor, which may not be the same as their given name, such as Mountbatten-Windsor.

According to a 1960 Privy Council declaration made by the late Queen, male line descendants of the monarch who do not possess royal styles or titles may use the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.

The children of the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh are not addressed as His or Her Royal Highness, and Lady Louise’s birth in 2003 was the year the Mountbatten-Windsor surname first appeared.

Following their royal wedding in 2011, William and Catherine were given the titles of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prior to the King’s announcement that William had been named Prince of Wales, they were known as the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge for a day following the passing of the late Queen.
