'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs, ' read a statement from the royal family.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have previously shown their love for Harry Potter franchise as the royal couple had visited The Warner Bros Studio Tour London back in 2013 - The Making Of Harry Potter.

It's official, the new royal baby has a name.

Prince Louis is fifth in line to the British throne behind big brother Prince George, 4, big sister Princess Charlotte, 2, dad Prince William, 35, and grandfather Prince Charles, 69.

Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate have named their newborn son Louis Arthur Charles, a nod to both his grandfather and heir to the throne and one of his most beloved mentors.

The couple's third child, who was born on Monday April 23 at 11.01am, weighing 8lb 7oz, will be known as Prince Louis, Kensington Palace announced after a four-day wait.


Only a few hours after his wife gave birth (and before Kate stepped out looking glamorous AF), Prince William brought his two older children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, almost 3, to visit their new sibling. His title will be HRH Prince of Cambridge.

Arthur, Albert and James had been considered front-runners.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte arrive at St Mary's to meet their little brother. George's full name is Prince George Alexander Louis.

The French embassy to London tweeted: "We're delighted that you've been given such a lovely French name!"

While Arthur was a favorite with bookmakers, and Charles a no brainer after Prince William's father, Prince Charles, Louis was a rank outsider with odds of 20 to one.

For one thing, one of Prince William's middle names is Louis - Prince William Arthur Philip Louis.
