Prince Louis: British royals William and Kate name their baby

Prince Louis: British royals William and Kate name their baby

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Prince William and Duchess Kate) welcomed their third child, a boy, earlier this week, and everyone has been patiently waiting for the pair to announce the name of the new royal baby.

Britain's Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge smile as they hold Prince Louis while leaving the Lindo wing of London's St Mary's Hospital on Monday, April 23.

And as is tradition, the new prince's name has strong family connections. And while Charles is clearly a tribute to the baby's grandfather, Prince William's dad, and heir to the throne Prince Charles, the rest of his name also has deep family history connected to it. Mountbatten was assassinated by members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRI) during a trip to Ireland in 1979.

The name Louis is part of both the baby's father's name, William Arthur Philip Louis, and of his older brother's name, George Alexander Louis. When his name was announced days later, there were some confusion on how his name is pronounced.

Speculation is mounting that his first offi cial engagement could be at his uncle Harry's wedding to Suits actress Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle on May 19. Bookies had put the best odds on the names "Arthur," "James" and "Phillip".

Dani Ceballos would have known full well that forcing his way into Real Madrid's starting line up wouldn't exactly be easy. Darko Brasanac turned home as Leganes rallied and only a fine Kiko Casilla save denied Unai Bustinza an equaliser.

He is very certain that the Prince is destined to be a singer, commenting: "He looks like a pop star, he sounds like a pop star and, with a name like Louis, he's definitely going to be a royal pop star!"

However, it has been said by various royal reporters that a trip to meet Prince Louis is being planned - but it is not known when it will be. William's full moniker is William Arthur Philip Louis and George's full name is George Alexander Louis. The name means "renowned warrior" in French, according to Metro.

It has taken four days for the new prince's name to be released.

On its search engine he appears second in the list of royals - just behind his great-grandmother The Queen.

Louis joins siblings Charlotte (2) and George (4) in the growing family. All three children were born at the same hospital where William and younger brother Prince Harry came into the world.
