Prince George embarked on his educational journey at Thomas’s Battersea School in 2017 and is now set to start Year 3.

And while his parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William are keen for the royal tot to have a normal-as-possible upbringing, students, teachers and fellow parents alike are bound to know his name.

Well, they might not know his entire name, as it certainly isn't just Prince George – in fact, the five year old has a number of monikers.

Which begs the question, what name will George go by in the classroom?

With his great-grandmother being none other than Queen Elizabeth II, he's earned himself the title of His Royal Highness, which means he technically doesn't need a surname.

But how does that work when it comes to the teacher's register?

It may surprise you to find out it isn't simply Windsor.

The royal's official website proclaims: "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."

But concludes: "If at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor."

Thomas's Battersea is reopening its doors this week, and it's believed that the royal kids will return to London for the start of term.

Previously on Twitter, Kensington Palace revealed which private school the royal will attend.

The palace announced: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced that Prince George will attend Thomas’s Battersea School in London from September 2017."

And the £6,000 per term mixed-sex day school – which has a focus on sports, the arts and outdoor activities – has a positive ethos to ensure the best for children.

While the most important rule is to "be kind", another is that children are not allowed to pick a best friend in case of hurt feelings.
