Prince William Just Reveal Kate Middleton’s Due Date
Prince William and Kate Middleton Just Revealed Their New Baby's Name
Prince William and Kate Middleton have finally revealed their new baby's name!
In a statement on Friday, Kensington Palace shared that the new prince was named Louis Arthur Charles. "The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge."
Louis was born on Monday morning at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London. He is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child. Prince William and Kate have a four-year-old boy, Prince George, and a two-year-old girl, Princess Charlotte.
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs.
The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz.
The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.
Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.
According toPeople, all three of the new prince's names have family significance. "Louis," which means "renowned warrior" in French, is possibly in tribute to Prince Philip (the baby's great-grandfather), since his grandfather was named Prince Louis Alexander.
Louis is also part of both father Prince William and brother Prince George's full names. Charles is of course the name the name of the baby's grandfather (Prince Charles), and Arthur is a traditional family name going back to Queen Victoria, who gave that name to her third son, perPeople.
On Monday, the royal couple stood outside on the steps of the hospital just seven hours after Kate gave birth with the new baby (and damn, did she look incredible).
People have been freaking out about how similar Kate's red dress was to the one Princess Diana wore after giving birth to Prince Harry in 1984.
And of course, the meet-and-greet gave us the chance to get a glimpse of the new prince:
Earlier in the day, William brought Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the hospital to visit their mom and new younger sibling.
The royal kids seem excited to meet their new baby brother. And look at Charlotte's masterful royal wave!
Kensington Palace confirmed the news that Kate was pregnant back in September via press release.
Kensington Palace later shared via Twitter that the couple was expecting in April (although they didn't share the exact due date).
Of course, there was a collective Internet freak out about the news, and people haven’t stopped speculating about the baby since.Rumors flew that the baby was due on St. George’s Day on April 23. That’s pretty close to the couple's seven-year wedding anniversary (Will and Kate were married on April 29, 2011). We’re pretty sure that they’ll have their hands full this year rather than celebrating.
They also had never confirmed the sex, but that didn’t stop people from guessing. Case in point: There are whole betting sites devoted to predicting the baby's name, according toCountry Living.
Hilariously, news of the growing family may not have fully registered with hubby William. Kate reportedly told a family at an event for the Snow Leopard Ward at Evelina London Children’s Hospital in February that he was in denial over her pregnancy, according toPeople.We’re sure he’s fully embracing his role of dad-of-three now.
We’ve long admired how real Kate is, despite being a royal. She's been open in particular about her struggles with motherhood: “…Nothing can really prepare you for the sheer, overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother. It’s full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love, and worry, all mixed together,” she said at an event last March.
Wishing this new family of five all the best!
