Prince Louis's birth certificate has officially been registered and signed by his father, the Duke of Cambridge. Born on April 23, 2018 at 11:01 A.M., the prince is called by his official title "His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge" on the birth certificate.

Just like the birth certificates of both Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the occupation of the Duchess of Cambridge is listed as "Princess of the United Kingdom," even though she does not officially carry the title of "Princess Catherine." Kate Middleton's official title is Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge, as listed under the name and surname part of the birth certificate.

Despite his mother's occupation being the same, there is one major difference between Prince Louis's birth certificate and those of his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Take a look at Prince George's official birth certificate from 2013.


Now, here is what Princess Charlotte's looks like.


While both of his older siblings had their birth certificates written out by hand, Prince Louis's is typed out. As you can see, the deputy registrar who filled out both Prince George and Charlotte's birth certificates has the same name and handwriting. However, Prince Louis's is signed by a different deputy registrar, so it appears that it's just a simple matter of preference by the person who holds the job at the time whether to type it out or write it up by hand, or perhaps protocols have changed within the registrar's office over the past few years.
