Shemot 2:11 says how Moshe went out to see the suffering of his people:

וַיְהִ֣י ׀ בַּיָּמִ֣ים הָהֵ֗ם וַיִּגְדַּ֤ל מֹשֶׁה֙ וַיֵּצֵ֣א אֶל־אֶחָ֔יו וַיַּ֖רְא בְּסִבְלֹתָ֑ם וַיַּרְא֙ אִ֣ישׁ מִצְרִ֔י מַכֶּ֥ה אִישׁ־עִבְרִ֖י מֵאֶחָֽיו׃

And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown up, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens; and he saw an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren.

But growing up in the king's palace as an Egyptian, how would he know that he was of Bnei Yisrael?

The Ramban explains that they (the Egyptians) told him, but why would they do that? "Hey, i know you think you're the prince, but actually, you'reyour people are those slaves..."

Totally lame source, but The Prince of Egypt's explanation is that he saw it in a dream, and then Pharaoh admitted it. Could this be what Ramban meant?
