Kate Middleton: Princess of the United Kingdom, but you can call me mummy

UK:Saturday, Aug 3, 2013(7STARNEWS)With four official titles to choose from, the question of how to describe her occupation on her son\'s birth certificate was rather more taxing for the Duchess of Cambridge than it is for the rest of us.

In the end, she opted for \"Princess of the United Kingdom\" as her job description when the Duke of Cambridge formally registered Prince George\'s birth on Friday.

Although she has never used the name, the Duchess is entitled to refer to herself as Princess William of Wales, as well as being Countess of Strathearn and Lady Carrickfergus.

The Duke, perhaps to show solidarity with his wife, described his own occupation as Prince of the United Kingdom, though he could have described himself as an RAF helicopter pilot, which is his day job.

The Duke, who signed the register as \"William\", was given a standard birth certificate, familiar to anyone born in the UK, but the manner in which he obtained it was anything but ordinary. Instead of going to his local register office, he was visited at Kensington Palace by Alison Cathcart, deputy registrar for Westminster, whose previous duties have included conducting the weddings of Joan Collins, Barbara Windsor and David Walliams.

She described the task as \"a great pleasure\", which cemented the borough\'s association with royal births, as Westminster also holds the birth records of the Queen, the Prince of Wales and Princes William and Harry, among others.

The royal baby was named as His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, with the \"usual address\" given as Kensington Palace. The Duchess was not present for the registration, instead staying at her parents\' home in Berkshire, where she has been since the day after she left hospital.

The Duke will return to work at RAF Valley on Anglesey next week after his paternity leave ends, but today he will be in action alongside Prince Harry when they play polo at Coworth Park in Ascot. Yesterday Prince Harry joked that the birth of Prince George means the \"pressure\'s off\" him to settle down and have children.

He said his father was \"over the moon\" to have become a grandfather and hinted that he might stay single for some time. Prince Harry, 28, made the comments as he spoke to Royal Marines and their families on a visit to the Devonport naval base in Plymouth.

After unveiling a plaque to open a pounds 30?million training centre, the Prince spoke to Tasha Reilly, 35, who was accompanying Lt Col Tristan Harris. She said: \"Harry was very down to earth. He said his father was over the moon to be a grandfather. I said, \'No pressure\'.

He said, \'No, now he\'s got one he\'ll be fine. Pressure\'s off\'.\" The new base, Royal Marines Tamar, is home to 1 Assault Group Royal Marines, which oversees amphibious warfare and Royal Navy board search and training. Wearing his Household Cavalry service dress uniform with his light blue Army Air Corps beret, the Prince reviewed a parade before taking the salute. He then joined Marie Francis, 68, to cut the ribbon on the training block, dedicated to her husband, Colour Sergeant Michael James Francis, who was awarded a Distinguished Service Medal for bravery in the Falklands conflict.

Colour Sgt Francis, who suffers from MS, could not attend the ceremony, but the Prince spoke of the \"amazing\" accomplishments of the veteran, who was a coxswain on a landing craft when enemy aircraft bombed RFA Sir Galahad. He ferried more than 100 survivors, some seriously wounded, to safety.
