Earlier this week the Price William and his wife Kate Middleton welcomed their third baby into the world. On the day of the baby’s announcement we were told that the gender of the child was a boy.
But that was it. No name was released that day… or the next day... or the next day... or the day after that. So we were all left to wait and wait and wait on pins and needles for it to officially be announced.
Well today that announcement has finally come.
The child’s full name is, Louis Arthur Charles.
His official royal title for the little guys is: His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge, according to the official Kensington Palace twitter account.

His birth automatically puts Louis fifth in line for the throne of England, after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father, and his two older siblings Prince George, who is 4, and Princess Charlotte, who will turn 3 years old just next month.
He does bump his uncle Prince Harry all the way down to sixth in line for the throne though.
Louis is the sixth great-grandchild of the Queen.
We’re all very happy that the name has officially been announced and we can’t wait to watch Louis grow up over the coming years.
