The tot — who turned eight on July 22 — goes by George Cambridge when he attends Thomas' Battersea Prep School, which is also where his sister, Princess Charlotte, goes, The Mirror reported.

The nickname comes from Prince William and Kate Middleton's titles — the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — as kings and princes usually take their last names from their father's titles.

For her part, Princess Charlotte, 6, is known as Charlotte Cambridge at the school.

When William, 39, attended St Andrews, he reportedly went by the name Steve so that he could remain under the radar. William also enrolled at school under the name William Wales.

In the meantime, George has been spotted out and about lately, as he has attended two soccer matches alongside his parents.

During the exciting sporting event, George dressed up in a suit and tie — and looked like his father's mini-me.

“Prince William is George’s absolute hero,” expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! magazine. “He thinks his dad’s the most perfect person on the planet. William would never have normally taken him to the football because it was an official outing in his role as president of the FA, but George absolutely begged to be allowed to come along."

The expert continued, “Kate and William are at pains to never expose the children unnecessarily to the cameras but he twisted their arm eventually. That’s why Kate came, so that when William had to meet all the dignitaries, George could stay with her."

Larcombe noted that George "idolizes" his father. "That’s why we saw him looking so smart in his suit — he really wanted to dress like William," he said. “He’s becoming a pretty big character and has both of his parents eating out of the palm of his hand.”

The day before George's big day, the royal family released a new snap of William and Kate's eldest child. "Turning eight(!) tomorrow 🥳🎂," the message read alongside a snap of George wearing a striped shirt and blue shorts.
