  • The Duchess of Cambridge is in labour with her third child More

The name of the baby prince of Cambridge, who was born on Monday at 11.01am weighing 8lb 7oz, has yet to be unveiled.

Alexander said: "Have you thought of the name Alexander for him?" to which William replied: "Well it's amusing you should say that".

The baby is a younger brother to 4-year-old Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who turns 3 next week.

William acknowledged that Prince Alexander had a nice ring to it, only for New Zealand's Sir Jerry Mateparae to throw his own name in as a possibility.

Prince Charles has admitted he may struggle to keep up with his expanding brood of grandchildren following the birth of Prince William and Kate's third child.

The little boy's parents William and Kate are one of the most famous and influential couples in the world, but would have seemed like any other doting mother and father to the newborn, who arrived safely on Monday morning United Kingdom time.


He also told guests at an Anzac Day ceremony that the new prince has a "strong name".

He's fifth in line to the throne and, like his uncle Prince Harry (now sixth in line), he'll amiably-and perhaps gratefully-further descend the ladder when his big brother Prince George has kids.

For the royal family, that number is much higher - they'll pay at least $1 million for Prince George alone, according to one estimate.

Despite his exhausted appearance, Prince William confirmed that Kate and the baby are "very well thanks", according to the Daily Mail.

Whatever his name, the new baby's official title will be styled the same as his siblings: Prince (name) Cambridge.

Kate, wearing a red dress, smiled at hundreds of well-wishers and assembled journalists as she left the hospital clutching her baby just seven hours after the birth.
