The royal family has officially released the name of the newborn prince: Louis Arthur Charles. He will be referred to as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.

Baby Louis was born on April 23, 2018. He is the third child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Both Kate and the baby were doing exceptionally well after the delivery. In fact, they were so healthy that they left the hospital just seven hours after Louis’ birth!


Although the first photos of the newborn prince were revealed just hours after he was born, the royal family kept his name secret for a little while.

People all over the internet had guesses about what the baby’s name would be, ranging from Arthur to James. Here are some of the best Twitter guesses:


Did you have a guess about what the baby’s name would be?

Most of the guesses were pretty spot-on, since they all sound pretty royal.

The new baby is fifth in line for the throne, behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte. He takes the spot right above his uncle, Prince Harry.

Prince Louis’ name was finally announced on April 27.

People magazine explained that Louis name “is likely a tribute to Prince Philip, whose grandfather was Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg. Louis is also part of Prince William’s full name of William Arthur Philip Louis and Prince George’s full name of George Alexander Louis. The name holds great meaning to William’s own father, Prince Charles, whose beloved great-uncle and mentor, Earl Louis Mountbatten, was assassinated by the IRA in 1979.”

This new little one might be the center of attention for the time being, but in a few weeks, he’ll be out of the spotlight when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot.


The happy couple is set to wed on May 19, 2018 at Windsor Castle. For now, though, they’ll enjoy being uncle and future-aunt to this new baby.

Welcome to the family. Thank you everyone for your kind wishes.
