The latest information relates to Prince William and more specifically, the name he used when attending college.

Apparently, the prince used an alias while at university to ensure he wouldn't be treated differently by his peers.

According to Hello! magazine, Prince William enrolled at St Andrews, a college in Scotland under the name William Wales but went by 'Steve'.

The popular celebrity-focused publication reports that he was commonly known as Steve to his friends and it stuck as a nickname.

It seems Harry also used another name, on social media at least.

However, he was then advised to delete it for security reasons after pictures of him partying in Las Vegas circulated on the internet.
