Meet HRH Prince George of Cambridge

On Wednesday 24th July at around 6.20pm Clarence House announced the name of the new baby prince, born days earlier to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Say hello to Prince George Alexander Louis!

Hello HRH Prince George of Cambridge!

Hello HRH Prince George of Cambridge!

The Duke and Duchess and Cambridge have somewhat broken tradition, choosing three names for the baby.  Harry, William and Charles all have four christian names in total.  Of course, Her Majesty The Queen has three names: Elizabeth Alexandra Mary.

A short statement from the Clarence House Twitter account:

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis.

The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

Of course, the Queen will be delighted at the name George – her father was King George VI.

According to experts speaking on Sky News, George is 12th most popular name in the UK for baby boys currently – I’d now expect this to shoot up now – at least into the top 5!

  1. Thanks for your work in providing this coverage, Carly.

  2. I love the name would have preferred Alexander as the first name and a little name tribute to Diana in there but beggars cannot be choosers and it is a lovely name. This name not only tributes William’s wonderful great grandfather but but also his great uncle Prince George Duke of Kent.

    I am in love with King George VI so I find this name to be fantastic. The Queen must be so resplendent that her father is tributed in this manner.

  3. I am so-so with George as a name, but thrilled with the pics of Kate and William. They already seem like so relaxed with that sweet baby boy.. My guess is that Kate and William will be less traditional for any subsequent children and can, hopefully, incorporate Spencer or Diana into a future name choice. Also, while the Queen’s father was King Gorge IV, his real first name was Albert, after Queen Victoria’s husband. Known to the family as Bertie, he was advised to not rule as King Albert due to the crisis in Germany at the time of his ascension to the throne. Albert was thought to be too German sounding.

  4. I love the name, they are going to make the most wonderful parents!

  5. Since Catherine has two names and William has four, I think they compromised on three for the new little prince!
