Kate Middleton and Prince William Have Named the Royal Baby!

Kate Middleton and Prince William Have Named the Royal Baby!”

Kensington Palace announced via Twitter today (April 27) that the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge have named their third child Louis Arthur Charles.

"The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge", it said.

After nearly a week of anticipation, we finally know the name of Kate Middleton and Prince William's third child!

Those versed in French history will note that the most famous Louis was Louis IX, aka the Sun King.

The name does not have a strong British royal pedigree, being more commonly associated with kings of France. Even though they didn't name him after William's grandfather, Prince Philip, his grandfather was actually named Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg. According to gambling company Ladbrokes, Arthur was tipped to be the favourite.

The name pays tribute twice over to Prince Charles, who has Arthur as one of his middle names.

The couple stepped out of St Mary's Hospital in central London to cheers from a crowd of supporters and global media outlets gathered outside.

The choice has come as surprise to royal watchers who had ruled out Louis as an option because it is one of the middle names of Prince George.

William and Kate now have three children: Louis joins Charlotte, 2, and George, 4.

Louis is fifth in line to the throne and a sixth great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth, who turned 92 on Saturday, and her husband Prince Philip.

"I'm sure William will have run it by the Queen to check she think it's appropriate", Ms Howard said.

Known to Charles as "Uncle Dickie", Mountbatten was the last British Viceroy of India before independence in 1947.

Lord Mountbatten died aged 79 when the IRA detonated a bomb on board his boat in August 1979. Plans are reportedly underway for ceremonial celebrations that accompany Royal births, the paper reported. "Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well".
