British Royal Family

Prince Louis' birth certificate reveals Prince William and Duchess Catherine's occupations

And they’re anything but ordinary!

By Candice Mehta-Culjak

Prince William and Duchess Catherine have officially registered the birth of their darling third child -- Prince Louis. And there's two little things that set his otherwise typical birth certificate apart from all the rest out there.

First, printed under the mother and father's 'occupations' section, William and Kate have listed "Prince of the United Kingdom" and "Princess of the United Kingdom" as their official roles. (As a side note, the very same roles were listed on Prince George and Princess Charlotte's birth certificates).

And secondly, when it comes to 'name and surname,' the newborn is listed under his full royal title -- His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge.

Apart from that, you'll spot all the usual trappings you'd expect to find on any mere mortals birth certificate. It states that the royal tot was born on April 23, 2018, at St. Mary's Hospital in Westminster, that his sex is male, and that he lives at Kensington Palace in London.

Well, that last bit is pretty unusual too...

William, 35, signed the registry at Kensington Palace overseen by a registrar from Westminster Register Office.

On Monday, April 23rd, the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge took to the stairs of the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London to officially introduce the world to their third child.

Impressively, the short-lived appearance came just seven hours after the birth of their precious new bundle of joy.

If the Cambridges follow the same pattern for the new royal baby as they did for their two other children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, we should expect to catch another glimpse of the little prince via a first official portrait.

Just a few weeks after George's arrival, the royal parents released a photo taken of the family of three (plus Lupo the dog) by new granddad Michael Middleton.

Princess Charlotte's first portrait, shot by her mum, came just over a month after she was born and featured her big brother George.

As for the new royal baby, we're guessing the portrait will arrive a little later than his sibling's did, on or around May 22. Counting four weeks from his birth takes us to the week of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding and we expect the royal family's focus will be the nuptials, so we predict a set of gorgeous snaps the following week.
