Royal Baby Name Announced and it’s a Big Surprise!

April 27, 2018 joesatran

Prince William and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have revealed the name of their third child: LOUIS ARTHUR CHARLES.

That’s right. After months of speculation, the new royal baby name is here. And it’s a huge surprise to everyone

Prince Louis Arthur Charles, born on April 23, is now fifth in line to the British throne, behind his grandfather, father and elder siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte. He is the first prince to be preceded in the order of succession by a sister.

Not totally in accordance with the conventions for royal baby names, each of Prince Louis‘s three names nevertheless honors someone of significance to the royal family. Louis is one of the middle names of Princes William and George and honors Louis Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh’s mentor who was killed by an IRA bomb in 1979, Arthur (one of the public’s favorites) was a middle name of William, Charles and King George VI, the Queen‘s father and Charles, of course, refers to Prince Charles, the baby’s paternal grandfather.
