The British royal family welcomed a new member of the monarchy and of course, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen a totally befitting name for the chubby royal baby. The Kensington Palace announced that “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.”
The name Louis Arthur Charles is very significant to the royal family and a tribute to the father Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis, the brother Prince George Alexander Louis and the grandfather Prince Charles Phillip Arthur George. Ever since the couple showed off their new son to the world from the exclusive maternity unit, The Lindo Wing on Monday evening, there has been much anticipation and speculation on what the name would be, and now the world is satisfied.
His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles is the third child of the Duke of Cambridge Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis and the Duchess, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. Born fifth in line, Prince Louis is the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. The Kensington Palace announced that the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry, the Middletons and of course the Queen were all too thrilled to welcome the new addition to the family.
The Duke of Cambridge joined his brother Prince Harry and soon-to-be sister-in-law Meghan Markle at Westminster Abbey for an Anzac Day service on Wednesday afternoon and the conversation was all about the new baby. When asked how the Duchess and baby were doing, Prince William said they were very well and “in good form, luckily”. “Sleeping’s going reasonably well so far, so he’s behaving himself which is good news”, the now father of three quipped.
Speaking for himself and the Duchess of Cornwall, the obviously delighted Prince of Wales said, “We are both so pleased at the news. It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don’t know how I am going to keep up with them.”
