Royal baby gets a name: Prince Louis

Royal baby gets a name: Prince Louis

On April 23 the family of Kate Middleton and Prince William was a joyful event - they became parents for the third time.

But have you wondered why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge settled on Louis for the name of their third born? He weighed 8 lbs 7oz at birth.

For their second anniversary, Kate, who was six months pregnant with Prince George, stepped out for a public engagement, visiting the Naomi House children's hospice in Hampshire. The world waited patiently for the moniker release leaving Royalists and bookmakers speculating what the Royal couple would name their newest son.

Kensington Palace's Instagram account shared a photo of the couple driving off after their wedding, in a getaway auto with a license plate reading "JU5T Wednesday", with a 5 clearly replacing the "S". Kensington Palace shared the news with a montage of images of the pair.

This is in stark contrast to William's younger brother, Prince Harry, who has let the world know just how much he adores his future bride Meghan Markle with many loving gestures.

Arthur, the baby's other middle name, is also Prince William's middle name.

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

I'v Proof Syria Attacked Citizens With Chemical Weapons - Macron
Mr Macron said he has been talking regularly this week with US President Donald Trump about the most effective response. The Western states put the blame of the attack on Damascus, while the Syrian forces firmly denied the claims.

In fact, the rush of new bets on the name Alexander cut the odds from 10-1 to 5-1, according to Ladbrokes, which still has Arthur as the favorite with 11-4 betting odds. It's also the name of Prince Philip's grandfather, Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg.

For a new royal addition to gain a Prince or Princess title, they must be the children or grandchildren of the sovereign.

'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs, ' read a statement from the royal family.

He arrived two days after his great-grandmother the queen's 92nd birthday on April 21.

The newest member of the royal family, whose name is pronounced "Lou-ee", rather than "Lou-iss", is fifth in line to the throne, bumping uncle Prince Harry down the order once again.

But interestingly, little Louis nearly wasn't a prince at all.

The little LAD was born at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London, shortly after it was announced she had gone into labour.
