Did you or your spouse fill out your baby’s birth certificate? When I was a new mom, I was so busy with my new baby that my husband took care of most of the paperwork. Looks like it was the same for new royal parents, William and Kate.
While Kate is still holed up with Baby George at her parents’ house in Bucklebury (Bucklebury! So quaint!), Prince William signed the birth register for his new son at Kensington Palace. If you’re the Prince of the United Kingdom, registrars make house calls.
A photo of the registry has been released, so you can take a look at William’s handwriting and see how he filled out the form.
He’s written out his baby son’s full title, “His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.”
Below that, William filled out his own full name, longer than his son’s: “His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis Duke of Cambridge.”
Fellow moms, do you ever struggle with what to put in the box under “occupation?” I do. Since I don’t work full-time I sometimes put “homemaker” or “blogger.” Its hard to describe what I do in a word, know what I mean?
Here’s what Prince William wrote in the box for his wife’s occupation, “Princess of the United Kingdom.”
Yes. She’s a Princess. Like a boss.
There’s some debate as to whether “Duchess” would be more appropriate. I don’t know the protocol, but I’m sure William thinks that if he’s a “Prince” and his son is a “Prince,” then his wife had darn well better be a Princess, too. I agree.
