Born: July 22, 2013
Prince George is the eldest of King Charles’ grandchildren and the eldest of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children. He was born in St. Mary’s Hospital in London. He was given the official title “His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge” at birth. He is currently second in line in throne after his father. After his parents’ titles changed to the Prince and Princess of Wales, his title changed to “His Royal Highness Prince George of Wales.” He currently attends Lambrook, a preparatory school in Berkshire.
A royal insider told UsWeekly on July 15, 2022, that George leads his family in everything and is especially close to Charlotte, 7 and Louis, 4. “George is a hard worker. He sometimes needs a nudge like all kids his age but he’s very smart and right up there at the top of his class,” the source said. “He’s very protective of his younger siblings and goes out of his way to help his mother with the household chores, especially when it earns him extra time on electronics!” The source also noted that George is a “well-grounded down-to-earth little boy.“ The little monarch is also very much like his father in his interests. “He’s very sociable and can chat for hours about his favorite soccer players, plus he loves rugby, cricket, all forms of sports really. He’s definitely a daddy’s boy. It’s not just their physical resemblance, they’ve got a ton of the same interests and hobbies in common – even helicopters!”
Prince George is also looking forward to his future responsibilities of being King, according to the source. “He’s well aware that one day he’ll be King and what that entails because William and the other senior royals including his grandpa [Prince] Charles and great grandmother the Queen have told him from an early age about his destiny,” the insider reveals. “He sees it as a huge honor and frequently asks his dad to loan him books about history, he loves listening to stories about his ancestors and the history of the Commonwealth, not just England. It’s very clear he takes it all very seriously and is dedicated to serving the Crown when his time eventually comes.”

Princess Charlotte is King Charles’ second grandchild and Prince William and Kate Middleton’s second child. She is currently third in line for the throne.

Her full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana in honor of King Charles, Queen Elizabeth and Prince William’s mother Princess Diana. She also attends Lambrook, a preparatory school in Berkshire with her brothers.
A source told Us Weekly that Charlotte acts like her older brother and is super close with her parents. “Mummy definitely has a shadow,” the source said. “Wherever Kate goes, so does Charlotte. It’s adorable. As she’s home a lot more than George, Charlotte spends time in the kitchen ‘helping’ with things. Whenever the housekeeper or Kate is preparing food, Charlotte needs her own little toy set by her side to imitate.”

Prince Louis is King Charles’ third grandchild and Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child. He is currently fourth in line for the throne. His name was revealed to be Louis Arthur Charles after his great-great-granduncle Louis, Earl Mountbatten of Burma and King Charles. He also goes to Lambrook with his older siblings.
During Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, a photo of Louis covering his ears went viral. His parents seemed to nod at the reaction in an Instagram post. “What a fantastic weekend of celebrations. Seeing people across the nation coming together with family, friends and loved ones has been extremely special,” the duo tweeted on Monday, June 6. “Thank you to everyone who turned out to show their gratitude to The Queen and her inspiring 70 years of leadership. From the crowds on the Mall to communities hosting street parties up and down the country, we hope you had a weekend to remember. “We all had an incredible time, especially Louis… 👀.”
