Revealed: The names Prince George and Princess Charlotte use at school

One of the ways to provide the youngest royals a normal life.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte are currently in Year 5 and Year 3 respectively.  

You might have wondered if the royal kids get called by Prince, Princess or Their Royal Highness at school. It has been revealed that they are known as George Cambridge and Charlotte Cambridge at school, in a nod to their parents' titles—the Cambridges. 

Royal family members need to go incognito sometimes, and the youngest of the royals is no exception. 

Their royalless titles and rather normal names are used at school in a bid to help Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, live a relatively normal life.

This was exactly the same case for their father, Prince William, who was called 'William Wales' at school. Their last name was that of Prince Charles' title 'Wales'.

The youngest Cambridge will also be known as Louis Cambridge when he starts school this September.

A few months ago, the Duchess of Cambridge slipped her own secret name when shopping in Wales. In order to keep their whereabouts less public and for more privacy, like many public figures, they have these secret names that they use. 

The name that Kate Middleton used before was 'Daphne Clark', while Prince William used 'Danny Collins. Both their names have DC as their initials, which is for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

According to The Telegraph via Bang Showbiz, Prince William and his wife Catherine, both 40, will not have their longtime nanny, Maria Borrallo - who has been at the beck and call of their children since the birth of firstborn Prince George, nine, in 2013, living with them as they downsize from Kensignton Palace this summer to the four-bed property.

The newspaper reports that the family-completed by daughter Princess Charlotte, seven, and four-year-old Prince Louis-"are not having a live-in nanny for the first time in their children's lives."

The big change is intended to give them the "most normal" life possible, while they will also be close to their 96-year-old grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, who resides at Windsor Castle, Berkshire.

The Cambridges have been trying different things to provide their three children with the most normal life. Earlier it was also revealed that Prince William will be the one doing the morning school run for their kids every day; driving and dropping them off at school.
