Britain: Royal baby named George Alexander Louis

London, July 25: Britain's Prince William and his wife Duchess of Cambridge Kate have named their newborn son as George Alexander Louis, sources in Kensington Palace announced on Wednesday.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge," the palace said in a statement, an AFP report said.


George was born at St Mary's Hospital here on July 22 and his birth saw wishes pouring in for the royal family from across the world.

Great Britain has seen six kings earlier with the name George though none was named Alexander or Louis.

Queen Elizabeth II's full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary while Prince William's complete name is William Arthur Philip Louis Windsor. The name of the infant raises speculation that he could choose the title George VII.

George's great-great-grandfather George VI, father of the current queen, was christened Albert Frederick Arthur George and used his fourth name after ascending to the throne.
