Palace: Royal baby named George Alexander Louis

  • Follow Latest News

LONDON — His Royal Highness has a name.

Britain’s new prince has been named George Alexander Louis, royal officials said Wednesday, ending speculation over what moniker Prince William and his wife, Kate, would pick for their first child.

Kensington Palace said the royals are “delighted to announce” their son’s name, adding that the 2-day-old baby and third-in-line to the throne will be known as “His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.”

Six previous British kings have been named George, and the name was a favorite of British bookmakers in the run-up to Wednesday’s announcement.

For now, the baby is expected to stay out of the spotlight after making his first “public appearance” in the arms of his parents outside of London’s St. Mary’s Hospital on Tuesday.

After leaving the hospital, the couple introduced their son Wednesday to great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, who was keen to see the baby before she starts her annual summer vacation in Scotland later this week.

Then the young family headed to see Kate’s parents in their village near London.

Now that Kate and William have chosen a name, they are expected to soon choose a photographer for the baby’s first official portrait.

Racists!

How could they name a child after the most hated person in America according to CNN?!? They should have named him Trayvon.

He is named George because the connection has now been made between the Elite and the programming of the minds of the masses....creating division...its easier to control people who are divided.

“The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”

I wonder if our own

I wonder if our own aristocracy, King Barrack and Michelle Antionette, have sent a royal message of congrats from their summer castle. All hail the struggling masses who prop up their fairytail lifestyles.

George

GEORGE m English, Romanian
From the Greek name Γεωργιος (Georgios) which was derived from the Greek word γεωργος (georgos) meaning "farmer, earthworker", itself derived from the elements γη (ge) "earth" and εργον (ergon) "work"...

I doubt very much that he will ever have a Pitch Fork in his hands

I expected a old fashioned

I expected an old fashioned name tied to Royal history...

As for the last name - they are the House of Windsor - I believe their recognized surname is Mountbatten-Windsor. If I'm not mistaken, I think Harry and William use "Wales" as their surname with regards to their military service - I know Harry does.
