Royal baby: Kate Middleton’s due date looms as it’s revealed child will have no last name
THE ROYAL BABY is expected to arrive soon. Kate Middleton’s due date has been revealed
on by a royal expert, who says the baby is expect to arrive on April 23 2018. It has no be revealed the baby will have no last name.
Could Kate Middleton’s baby be born this weekend? Photographers have reportedly been told to rush to the Lindo Wing in Paddington.
An early due date would give Kate and her baby time to recover before her brother-in-law Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle.
The royal baby will not have a last name, according to experts. Kate Middleton’s due date is said to be imminent.
However, this baby will be born without a last name. While it is a requirement for normal parents to give their child a surname, this is not the case with royal births.
Kate Middleton and Prince William’s third child will have a blank space on their birth certificate where a normal child’s last name would be.
Royal expert Marlene Eilers Koenig told Town & Country: “The royal baby will not have a last name.
“The name on the birth certificate will say HRH Prince or Princess, and all three names of Cambridge.”
What this means is that the baby’s first three names will be put on the document, but not its last name.
Similarly, Prince George’s birth certificate will read: “HRH Prince George Alexander Louis.”
And that is it. While it seems strange not to have a last name, this is a royal tradition for the British.
Ms Koenig added: “The House name is Windsor and the family name for those who do use a surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.”
Queen Elizabeth II added ‘Mountbatten’, Prince Philip’s last name, to the Windsor name as a nod to him when they married.

However, Prince George chose to not use this name when he joined school, perhaps his parent’s thought it would be too complicated for a young boy to write.
George goes by Cambridge at school, being referred to as George Cambridge.
It is not unusual for royal children to use their parent’s peerage as their last name.
In the past Prince William and Harry have used the last name “Wales” as Prince Charles is the Prince of Wales.
