k1The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their child ‘Prince George Alexander Louis’ Kensington Palace has just announced.

This means that the baby’s title in full will be ‘His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.

He will be known as Prince George.

When he becomes King, Prince George could either be George VII or George VIII depending on whether Prince Charles also chooses the regnal name of George (George VII).

The official press release said, “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. ”

George was the name of Queen Elizabeth II’s father and grandfather when they were on the throne (George V and George VI) – George is also one of Prince Charles’s middle names and Louis is also one of Prince William’s middle names.

He is now the second Prince George of Cambridge after the first Prince George of Cambridge (1819-1904) who became the Duke of Cambridge in 1850.

Despite what some media sources continue to report, however, Prince George is not the Prince of Cambridge.

Prince George now falls third in line to the throne and will one day be our King.
