HRH Prince Louis of Cambridge
Five Days after the prince was born he was given a name. Kensington Palace said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles."The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge."

Princess Charlotte Keeps Her Place in Line to the Throne, 1st Female in 1,000 years.
Something monumental happened with the birth of this new prince, thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act 2013. Something that hasn't happened in over 1,000 years in England. Princess Charlotte, a female, kept her place in line to the throne.
Previously, men outranked women when it came to succession to the throne, but that all changed with the introduction of the new Act in 2013.
And now, according to People, when Prince William and Middleton's third child arrives, it will be the "first time in history, a female royal's spot in line to the throne won't be bumped by the arrival of a male."
Basically, Princess Charlotte will be making history, as it's the first time there's been no threat to a woman's position in regards to the throne.
It will take a few days before the name of the prince will be revealed. But some have taken pleasure in the irony that they can't call the boy George after it was given to their first born, who was at school today.
Mike Peters said: 'Oh the irony! A royal Prince born on St George's Day and they can't call him George!'. Ellie Agius said: 'When you give birth on St. George’s day but you’ve already named one of your baby’s George'. Others enjoyed the fact the baby came on St George's Day, calling it a 'quintessentially English' royal birth and is 'as British as it gets'.
