The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton have finally revealed their newborn son’s name. This revelation came after days of waiting.
The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.
The name serves as a tribute to Prince Charles’ beloved great-uncle, mentor and ‘honorary grandfather’, Lord Mountbatten, who was killed in 1979 when the IRA placed a bomb in his fishing boat.
It is traditional that the Royals wait a few days before announcing the names.
The new Prince of Cambridge has become the fifth in line to the throne, pushing Prince Andrew out of the top six for the first time.
