PRINCE George and Princess Charlotte’s new surname has been confirmed for the first time on the order of service for their great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
It was reported that the children, who walked behind the late monarch’s coffin in the coffin procession at the funeral, were to be known as Wales instead of Cambridge.
Their parents, Prince William and Catherine, were formerly known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but became the Prince and Princess of Wales upon the death of Queen Elizabeth and the ascension of the former Prince of Wales – the new King Charles III – to the throne.
And the lengthy Order of Service for the state funeral and committal service has listed the children’s names for the first time.
While they have been written as Prince George of Wales and Princess Charlotte of Wales, they are likely to be known as George Wales and Charlotte Wales at school.
Their younger brother Louis, who won’t be attending the funeral, will also adopt the new surname.
