Naturally, the occasion has led to many looking back over the life of the young prince and one thing has sparked interest yet again.


George’s birth certificate has raised a few eyebrows of late and it’s all down to his mum, Kate.

Yes, the Duchess of Cambridge has gone by that title since she married William in 2011, however, George’s birth certificate says something totally different.

When asked for her name on the official form, it reads ‘Catherine Elizabeth, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge’, which is all well and good.

However, when asked about her occupation, the answer given was ‘Princess of the United Kingdom’.

The Queen gave Kate the title of Duchess of Cambridge on her wedding day because as she was not born a royal, she could not carry ‘princess’ before her name.

However, that doesn’t change the fact that she fulfils the expectations of a princess, therefore uses that title as her job description.

It’s all very complicated, isn't it?
