Kate Middleton and Prince William finally announced the name of their third baby Friday morning.
Kensington Palace took to Twitter to unveil the news after Middleton, 36, gave birth to a baby son on Monday.
The Duke and Duchess have named the little one Prince Louis Arthur Charles.
The Palace posted:
Bookies had James and Arthur listed as the frontrunners all week, with the latter leading the pack because it was Queen Elizabeth’s late father’s middle name. Charles is, of course, the name of William’s father.
The name Louis is actually one of both William and his eldest son George’s middle names (Prince George Alexander Louis). It also has family ties as Louis Mountbatten was the uncle of Prince Philip.
Louis Tomlinson was among those taking to Twitter to share his thoughts on the young Prince’s name, with him joking:
The announcement comes after Middleton and William introduced the newborn to the world just seven hours after the Duchess gave birth Monday.
Middleton looked as radiant as ever as she posed for photographers in a stunning red dress with a white collar by Jenny Packham.
Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, were also both born at St Mary’s Hospital, as was Prince Harry, the Duke of Cambridge’s brother.
The royal baby’s arrival now means that Harry drops to sixth place in succession to the throne.
