Middleton is currently staying with her family about 50 miles away in Bucklebury with baby George, so William traveled alone to Kensington Palace to sign the birth register, witnessed by a Registrar from Westminster Register Office. While most new parents have to travel to a register office to formally register the birth of their child, a Westminster City Council Registrar traveled to Kensington Palace for William to sign.

A photo of the registry was released, and William listed their occupations as "Prince and of the United Kingdom" and "Princess of the United Kingdom." Middleton was referred to as a Princess, rather than a Duchess.
