(USA TODAY) -- We've all got to work for a living. Even those of us who are royal.

On Prince George's birth registry, unveiled today at the Westminster Register Office in London, Dad William dutifully filled in all the sections, including the part about the baby's father's occupation, in which he wrote in neat, loopy cursive "Prince of the United Kingdom." Mom Kate's job? "Princess of the United Kingdom."

Nice work, if you can get it.

William's name and surname are listed as "His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis Duke of Cambridge" - whew - while his wife is a relatively pithy "Catherine Elizabeth Middleton," her maiden name spelled out in block capital letters.

Still, there are few working stiffs who can legally sign off a formal document with a single sobriquet, as the Duke of Cambridge did, scrawling simply "William" at the bottom.
