formally registered their firstborn son on Aug. 2.
Though it’s tradition for the royal baby’s parents to sign the papers at a local registrar’s office, in this case a Westminster Council registrar came to them and served as a witness. The birth certificate can be seen in its entirety above. Here are some fun facts we learned from the official document, which was revealed via the Clarence House Twitter:
– Prince George’s official name and surname is “His Royal Highness George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.”
– Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, simply had to write for their occupations “Prince of the United Kingdom” and “Princess of the United Kingdom.” It must be nice.
– Prince William filled out the birth certificate. He simply signed it, “William.”
