William and Kate reveal their son’s name


Prince William and his wife, Catherine, have named their baby boy Prince George Alexander Louis.

The royal couple revealed their son's name for the first time shortly before 7 pm yesterday, just hours after relocating to the home of Kate's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, in Bucklebury, Berkshire, South East England.

Kensington Palace released a short statement to confirm the news, "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."

A source close to the couple also told the MailOnline website the traditional names aren’t symbolic but that William and Kate just really liked them.
