The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced their newborn son’s name – and they’ve stuck to tradition.
The royal announcement came on Friday morning.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles” a statement from Kensington Palace read.
It went on to say the baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.
Louis is not only Prince George’s middle name, but also that of Prince William. It is believed that the name comes from Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh’s uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten.
The newest royal arrived at 11.01am on April 23 and joins big brother Prince George, four, and sister Princess Charlotte, two.

As always with a royal baby, was plenty of speculation as to what the little prince would be called. Albert, James, Arthur, Philip, Fred, Thomas and Edward all top picks for betters. Jack is even up there thanks to Prince William’s slip of the tongue that basically gave away the sex of the baby earlier this month.
