Prince George Alexander Louis: How Kate Middleton & Prince William Decided On The Name
A lot of consideration goes into the naming of the heir to the royal throne. Family history, tradition, and the parents’ own preferences all come into play — and it seems that Prince William and Kate really put the emphasis on picking names they really love!
In fact, they chose their baby’s names simply “because they liked them – no more no less,” according to officials at Kensington Palace.
“William and Kate had already decided [on the name] by the time they introduced the Queen to her heir” reports The Daily Mail. “It is believed the couple discussed their choice [of names] with her during their 30-minute meeting” after the baby was born.
While the proud new parents did not have to fish for Queen Elizabeth II’s approval of the baby’s name, we’re sure that she loved their final pick. Her own father was King George VI — what an honor!
The Royal Baby’s Name Announced
Prince George’s name was finally announced by the palace on July 24, two days after his birth on July 22. The official Kensington Palace press release reads:
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.
