When to expect new photos of baby Prince Louis

Share

Following brother George Alexander Louis and sister Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, Louis' name is a little unique as his first name appears within George's full name.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles was announced as the new royal baby's name this morning by Kensington Palace.

The public was shocked to find out the royal couple had made a decision to brand the baby "Louis" - an unexpected name for the bookies who had expected "Arthur" or "Alexander".

"Louis is a little surprising on one level because it's not a strong Anglo-Saxon, British name, and that has been what the royal family has tended to go for".

"He stood in for his father because Prince Philip was so alone when he lived in this country and also he gave a lot of support both to Prince Philip and also to Prince Charles and was lost too early due to the IRA bomb".

Linda Robson also joked on Friday's Loose Women that the royals had asked her permission to copy her baby name.

Prince Louis' name (which means "renowned warrior" in French) may have been chosen to honor Prince Phillip.

If that wasn't enough confirmation, well it turns out that the new prince isn't just named after his dad, but it is also a nod to the Royal family's past.

Prince Louis' full name is Louis Arthur Charles.

So it was unsurprising that conventional names were the favorites of the bookies before the latest announcement.

The new prince weighed in at 8 lbs., 7 oz., Kensington Palace tweeted. A baby Bactrian camel was spotted by keepers at Blackpool Zoo in northwest England just as news the Duchess of Cambridge had gone into labor broke on Monday. All three children were born at the same hospital where William and younger brother Prince Harry came into the world. London-based betting company Ladbrokes dubbed Arthur and Albert the top contenders, likely because they are the middle names of princes William and Harry.
