It's no secret that members of the Royal Family sometimes have to go incognito, and Prince George and Princess Charlotte are no exception.

In a bid to help George, nine, and Charlotte, seven, have a relatively normal education, they are given different names at school.

While Prince George and Princess Charlotte are at school, their classmates have no idea they are learning alongside two of the most famous children in the world.

This is especially true for George, who is set to one day become King of England.

As reported by Hello! Magazine, they are called George Cambridge and Charlotte Cambridge at school.

Prince Louis, who is starting school this September, will similarly be known as Louis Cambridge.

This was an experience shared by the children's father, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, who had their father's title Wales at school.

Members of the Royal Family typically don't have surnames, but the exception to this are those without Royal titles and status, like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children.

When their son Archie was born in 2019, they decided not to give them Royal titles, and Archie is therefore simply called Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

He is not known as Archie Sussex, his father's former title, because the Queen declared in 1960 that male-line descendants of the crown without titles shall be referred to as Mountbatten-Windsor.

This is also the case for Lilibet Diana.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's eldest children are currently set to move from Thomas's Battersea to Lambrook School in Bracknell.

This is because the family are moving from Kensington Palace to the quieter Windsor.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that they will be driven to their new school by one other than Prince William himself.

According to The Sun, the family decided to have William drive the children to school in a bid to give them the most normal upbringing as possible.

This is something that was not possible when the family lived in Kensington Palace, but their new move to Windsor will facilitate it.

An insider said: "This is very much a decision that two parents have made to give their children the ‘most normal’ start possible. KP can be a little bit of a fishbowl.

"They wanted to be able to give George, Charlotte and Louis a bit more freedom than they have living in central London. It's very much a decision that's been led by the kids."
