Lesser-known cousin who attended school with George and Charlotte

Most will be familiar with the likes of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, but there are many other royal children who fly relatively under the radar.

Despite her connections to such a prestigious family, one such is Maud Elizabeth Daphne Marina Windsor, the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and British actress, Sophie Winkleman.

The young royal was born on August 15, 2013, in Los Angeles, California – a few weeks after her distant cousin George and even used to attend the same school, Thomas’s London Day School in Battersea, as George and Charlotte, reports Daily Mirror.

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 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 close relationship with her royal cousins, George and Charlotte at school in London.

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 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."
