Britain's new prince is named Louis Arthur Charles

Prince George and Princess Charlotte visit

In March this year, Kensington Palace announced Mr Head would be leaving his role, after joining the Royal Family in 2008 as press secretary to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Prince William and Kate Middleton revealed the name of their newborn son after several days of anticipation.

The month of April has brought the royal couple quite a lot of celebration as last week, they welcomed their third child into the world, Louis Arthur Charles, who was born at roughly 11am on Tuesday, April 24.

Arthur, a name steeped in British lore, was the middle name of Queen Elizabeth II's father, King George VI and both William and grandfather Prince Charles have it as a middle name. Stingray Louis is an endangered blue-spotted variety. Here are a few other British royal babies who've also had to smile for the camera. He hopes it will highlight the plight of the endangered species.

The name will be pronounced "Lew-ee" and not the more Americanized "Lewis".

Famous people named Louis include pop star Louis Tomlinson from One Direction and jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong.

He was assassinated by Irish republicans when his boat was blown up on a fishing trip off the coast of County Sligo in the Republic of Ireland.

Prince Harry, who is now fifth in line to the throne, will be bumped back to sixth.

Bookmakers had been doing a brisk trade in bets on the new prince's name, but Louis wasn't among the favorites.

Louis is also a middle name of Prince George. "The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz". According to Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, using the same name across the immediate family is not unusual for the royals.

Charlotte's name - Charlotte Elizabeth Diana - was announced two days after her May 2, 2015, birth.

However, the child will probably not go by this entire title, as royal historian Marlene Koenig explained, "Royal children are "styled" differently if they are the children of a royal duke".
