When you list all the young royals, you will certainly know Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Archie and Lilibet.

But there are in fact several other young royals who are equally adorable but not so well known about.

Whether it is one of The Queen’s 12 great-grandchildren or the grandchildren of her cousins, there are many royals who fly under the radar despite their historic connections to such a famous family.

One young royal who very few people know about is Prince Michael of Kent’s granddaughter who attends the same school as Prince George and Princess Charlotte in London.

Maud Elizabeth Daphne Marina Windsor is the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and British actress, Sophie Winkleman.

She was born on August 15, 2013, in Los Angeles, California – just a few weeks after her distant cousin Prince George. She was born in the US as that is where her mother was working at the time.

You may recognise Sophie best from her role in the sitcom Two and a Half Men, her role as ‘Big Suze’ in Peep Show or as the adult version of one of the child actors in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Maud is the granddaughter of The Queen’s cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, which makes her the great-granddaughter of Prince George, Duke of Kent and the great-great-granddaughter of King George V.

As the 54th in line to the throne, Maud is named after several of her royal ancestors. Her first name is after Queen Maud of Norway who was a daughter of King Edward VII and Elizabeth is in honour of the Queen.

Her other middle name, Daphne, is after Sophie’s beloved grandmother and Marina was the name of Lord Frederick’s grandmother, Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.

Little Maud has a younger sister named Isabella Alexandra May Windsor and she shares a very close relationship with her royal cousins, Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they go to the same school, Thomas’s London Day School in Battersea.

In an interview with Hello , Sophie gave details on how close the royal cousins are: “We were invited to tea at Kensington Palace just before Princess Charlotte was born.

“Maud and George got on very well… He is a very clever, articulate little boy and was speaking long before other toddlers his age.”

Maud was also pictured next to Princess Charlotte when they both served as bridesmaids at Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank on October 12, 2018.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte won’t be classmates with Maud for much longer as they look set to attend a new school in Windsor this September.

Following reports of Prince George’s trial day at Lambrook School near the Berkshire Estate, it became clear that both Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis would be joining their big brother at the same school.

Lambrook charges an increasing annual fee as the children go through the school, meaning that the three Cambridge children’s education will cost an incredible £71,344 a year.

When he joins in Year 1, Prince Louis’s annual fees will amount to £17,556, while Princess Charlotte’s will total £25,792 and Prince George’s will be the highest at £27,996 per year.

The school boasts incredible facilities which include a 9-hole golf course, a polo field, a bee farm, scuba diving clubs and a mini Masterchef club.
