How do you know how George signs his name? Or even that he knows how to write his name yet? Given, you know, as he's 3...

I'd even question how you know how Hugh Grosvenor, Duke of Westminster, signs his name...

All HRH sign with their given name, it is the prerogative of a prince/ss and peers sign with their last name.


The Duke Of Marlborough signs as 'Marlborough' - You can very easily check the Roll of the Peerage if you need more confirmation.

This is technically correct but not always how things happen.

I had a letter from the Duke of Devonshire once and he signed 'Stoker Devonshire'.

A prince can also sign 'Charles P' 'Edward P' etc for princeps.

The point is though that you don't actually know how George or the Duke of Westminster sign their name. It is very likely that the Duke of Westminster signs "Westminster" as that is how a peer typically signs, but unless you have any supporting evidence to say that's how he does it you're guessing. It is also likely that George will one day sign "George", but as he's only 3 it's just as likely that he doesn't sign his name at all, doesn't know how to write his name fully at all, and is only just learning his letters - or he could be writing his name fully, but the likelihood of him having a signature at this point...

I would add to that regardless of royal status, a 3 year old who can write their name likely isn't writing anything more than their first name.
