PRINCESS CHARLOTTE goes by a more common name only known to her friends and teachers while at school, an unearthed report has revealed.
Yesterday, Express.co.uk reported on how Princess Charlotte, the daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton, will never be granted the title of “Duchess”. This is despite her brothers, Prince George and Prince Louis, likely poised to receive a dukedom in the future. Like most royals, her title will change as she grows up.
Her full title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge and she is fourth-in-line to the throne.
But she is not even referred to as a Princess while in school.
Ahead of Charlotte’s first day at the fee-paying Thomas’s Battersea school, it emerged that there would be no “Your Royal Highness” in the classroom.

Instead, the little royal is just another child to her classmates, and is known as Charlotte Cambridge.
This is presumably to ensure she has as normal an education as possible, something that is very important to her parents.
Peole Magazine even suggested she may be called “Lottie” as mother Kate admitted often calling her.

Her brother also holds the name George Cambridge during school hours.
It is in a similar vein to her father and uncle, Prince Harry.
During their school days, the brothers were known as William and Harry Wales.

The pair took their second names from their father’s title, Charles, the Prince of Wales.
So, when William married and became Duke of Cambridge, George was naturally expected to take his father’s Duke title, just as Charlotte was.
Charlotte’s cousin, Archie Harrison, will likely use his Mountbatten-Windsor surname at school.

Baby Archie has not yet bonded with his Cambridge cousins in the UK.
It comes as Harry and Meghan Markle decided to move to North America after renouncing their royal titles in January earlier this year.

Archie, now aged one, has spent only a sliver of precious time with his family, including Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip.
It is unclear when the Cambridge’s will next see Harry, Meghan and Archie.
