It is official! The royal officials had issue the official name for the newborn Prince of Cambridge as “His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge”!
Statement issued by The Clarence House.
According to the official statement issued by Prince Charles’ office from The Clarence House, it is said :
The rationale behind the name is yet unbeknownst. Likely, the name “George” is named after his great-great-grandfather King George VI, the Queen’s father whereas “Louis” is one of William’s middle names. It is also 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. It is said that the Mountbatten and William’s father the Prince of Wales were very close, with Charles confiding in his relative. He was known by the Royal Family as Uncle Dickie and was assassinated by the IRA in August 1979, three years before William was born. His boat was blown up on a fishing trip off the coast of County Sligo, Republic of Ireland.
It is Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
Anyway, for the record, there has never been an English king called Alexander but three medieval Scottish kings ruled as Alexander. But, oh well whatever it is, here is the 3rd in line to the throne ascension!
