It’s official! The name of the newest little Prince has officially been announced by Kensington Palace! Ever since Duchess Kate and Prince William announced that they were expecting a child, we’ve been battling to learn anything we possibly could about the little boy, although the Royal Palace has kept most of it under wraps!
On Monday, April 23, Kate and William welcomed the newest prince to their family. He is their third child, and joins his siblings, 4-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte as the next generation of royals!
We have been waiting anxiously for the family to announce the name of their newest child, and it was beginning to seem like they were going to truly draw it out! After the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the parents announced the name two days later.
The world waited anxiously on April 25 to find out if they would follow their own tradition and announce it two days after the baby was born, but it seems like that wasn’t to be! Multiple theories have been thrown around as to why they would have waited to announce this Prince’s official name.
One of the theories about why they didn’t announce then was that the family didn’t want to overshadow Anzac Day. Anzac Day is a day that commemorates the lives of people from Australia and New Zealand whose lives were lost during combat.
Another reason was that Prince Charles was in France to celebrate Anzac Day, and so he had yet to have a chance to meet the newest Prince. They also still had to inform all of their families before they could make the official announcement!
Rumors about what they’d name the child have been flying around since they first announced the pregnancy, and people have even been betting on it! Some of the top names people believed would be chosen are Albert, Henry, James and Alexander!
It seems that Duchess Kate and Prince William have decided to name their little bundle of joy, His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles. Isn’t that just the most perfect name for the newest royal? I personally don’t think they could have picked a better name!
What do you think of the newest Prince’s name?
Fans were so excited to hear news about Prince Louis that they were unable to contain their joy!
