Checkout the adorable name of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s new royal baby

We shared first photos of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s cute newly born baby shortly after the formal introduction. The royal couple has now revealed the name they chosen for their baby boy.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles,” Kensington Palace said in a statement Friday. “The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.”

Louis (pronounced “LU-EE”) means “renowned warrior” in French, and 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.

The royal baby’s middle names of Charles and Arthur also hold special meaning. Charles, of course, is in honor of the baby boy’s grandfather, Prince Charles. And the name Arthur is a family tradition. Both dad William and grandfather Charles have it as a middle name. Arthur was also the name of Queen Victoria’s third son (and seventh child) and was said to be her favorite child.

Kensington Palace had announced that Kate Middleton was in early labor with her third child in the early hours of Monday and shortly after she gave birth to a baby boy weighing 8 lbs., 7 oz.

Before the little prince was formally introduced, William left the hospital to pick up his elder children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The 36 year old Duchess of Cambridge looked as flawless as ever as stepped out in a spectacular red dress with a white Mary Jane collar which she paired with nude heels.

Kate’s outfit was reportedly also the spitting image of the frock Prince William‘s late mother Diana wore following the birth of Prince Harry, 33, in September 1984.
