Prince Louis: British royals William and Kate name their baby

Middleton gave birth to an almost 4-kilogram boy at the St. Mary's Hospital, and of course, she and Prince William debuted the newborn at the steps of Lindo Wing before the family heads back to the Kensington Palace.

She took her new baby home just seven hours after giving birth, showing off the new prince to the world with the duke by her side.

As Kensington Palace revealed that William and Kate's third baby would be named Prince Louis of Cambridge, Legoland bosses at Windsor came up with a royal gesture of their own.

Prince Louis is the third child of Kate Middleton - whose official styling is now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge - and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Louis is one of Prince William's middle names and is a middle name of his oldest son, Prince George.

The prince, who is fifth in line to the throne, was born on Monday evening (AEST).

She added: '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. It is also a part of newborn's father and elder brother's full names - William Arthur Philip Louis and George Alexander Louis.

Trump finally scheduled that United Kingdom visit
One Facebook group called Protest Trump's Visit , hosted by columnist Owen Jones, already has 28,000 intended attendees. Here is what we know so far as the United Kingdom prepares for US President Donald Trump's visit this summer.

Louis was the name of Earl Mountbatten of Burma, the uncle of Queen Elizabeth's husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The French embassy to London tweeted: "We're delighted that you've been given such a lovely French name!"

They wrote: 'Louis Arthur Charles, you were named after three iconic Weasleys...

His birth was also a significant moment for Charlotte, the first princess who will not be overtaken in the line of succession by her younger brother.

Bookmakers had been doing a brisk trade in bets on the new prince's name, but Louis wasn't among the favorites.
