ROYAL BABY PRINCE NAMED GEORGE
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their son - George Alexander Louis.
The first child of Prince William and Catherine, who is third in line to the throne, will be known as Prince George of Cambridge.
George was the bookmakers' favourite for the first name of the prince.
There have been six King Georges up to now, most recently the Queen's father, although his first name was Albert and he was known to his family as Bertie.
The name Louis is Prince William's fourth name and is likely to be a tribute to Lord Louis Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh's uncle and the last British Viceroy of India before independence in 1947.
Alexander is said to be a favourite of Catherine's.
As well as being an established regal name, George is also a saint's name. St George was an early Christian martyr and is the patron saint of England.
