What surname will Prince George be addressed by?

Prince George will be addressed by the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.

The magazine quotes the royal website, which says: “For the most part, members of the Royal Family who are entitled to the style and dignity of HRH Prince or Princess do not need a surname.

“If at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.”

The Prince first attended the south London school in 2017.

It’s said that the £6,000 per term school focuses on sports, the arts and outdoor activities.

It also forbids its pupils to choose a best friend in case they hurt another pupil’s feelings.
