If you guessed the difference is the text on Louis’ birth certificate was typed, while Prince George and Princess Charlotte‘s was handwritten - you're correct!

So, why was the royal tot's one typed?

Former Westminster deputy registrar Alison Cathcart told the Daily Mail at the time that she received death threats over her handwriting.

While she says it was the highlight of her career, Cathcart said having an audience with a sleep-deprived Prince William led to some very nervous form-filling.

"I got death threats," she says glumly.

"One person said their cat had better handwriting, someone called for me to be fired and someone even said I was illiterate."

Now that is crazy!
