Kensington Palace statement
Posted on 07-24 at 17:07:33 CST
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.
From Washington Post:
Royal baby is named George Alexander Louis
LONDON The bookies were right: He Who Had No Name is now Prince George.
His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, to be exact.
On Wednesday, that regal name was bestowed on Britains two-day old royal baby by his parents, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Although the thoroughly modern royal couple chose a thoroughly modern way to distribute the news, via Twitter, Prince George is as old-school as it gets.
No fewer than six British kings have borne the name George, with its personal symbolism for William making it an obvious pick for months in betting pools across this island nation. The last of the six was George VI, Williams great-grandfather, whose valiant battle with a speech impediment as he assumed the throne following his brothers abdication was dramatized in the Oscar-winning film The Kings Speech.

Howie Carr was hoping for “Prince Carlos Danger”.....*smirk
Well, some people were hoping he’d be named Trayvon...
However, I’m glad they named him after Washington.
He’s named after his great-grandad, the current Queen’s father. He of “The King’s Speech.” The one who didn’t want the throne.
makes buying new china less expensive when there are already 6 sets named George in the curio hutch.
Someone posted on FR yesterday that it would be funny if the royal couple named their baby - George.
This is hilarious!
I bet the Louis comes from his great uncle Louis Mountbatten, the last tiger of Indjah
Right now he resembles Winston Churchill.
ok, why did she look more pregnant now than before?
But every one will know him as Nancy.
Now they can say “That’s my GAL.”
I wondered that myself.
Initials are GAL - the boy is a GAL?
Sounds like gender confusion is inevitable... by the Queen signed off on gay marriage, so it’s all good. /sarc
Since Queen Elizabeth’s father was named George it was pretty obvious that was going to be the baby’s name..you can just hear leftists now “They named the baby after George Zimmerman” LOL you know it’s coming..poor Obama, he was hoping they would name the baby Trayvon after his hero, too bad. Congrats to the Royal Couple on the birth of their baby, It’s nice seeing life celebrated
The third set was pretty badly cracked.
Where’s his cigar?
typo: * “but” the Queen signed off...
He could grow up to be King or Queen.
That’s only the name on the pedigree.
At home they call him Skippy.
It’s obvious neither of you have given birth, much less had to go into public with the whole world watching the next day.
Wasn’t the last picture of her in public like 6 weeks ago? A lot happens in the last 6 weeks...
It takes a little time for the tummy to get back to normal especially with someone as slim as Kate == and George was a good sized baby.
Hint: Never, ever say that to a woman who has just given birth.
Let's pray he is like Churchill, that family could use some common sense.
Hmmm, no “Charles” in the name. I have always thought that the boys did not respect their dad.
This whole royal jazz is just crazy.
The royal family sucks millions and millions of tax dollars and live high on the hog while the average Brit slogs their way through life.
Jetting off here and there. Living in palaces, catered night and day. The best of everything....and what do the royals contribute?
Beats the heck out of Homer!
I think all the public school lads are a bit light in the loafers...
And that is so much different from our system...how?
‘________look more pregnant now than before?’
Possibly because the dress was a bit too snug.
I saw the tummy also.
Very few post-pregnancy figures have a sort of flat tummy - especially 2 days after birth.
I’m betting her figure will be back quite soon, altho she can take as long as she’d like to accomplish this, IMO.
They should have named him George Thatcher Churchill, just to watch the Left do backflips. :)
Haig, “I’m in charge now!”?
Too much fun here!
:: while the average Brit slogs their way through life ::
Not simply because of the monarchy. A socialist parliamentary government goes a long way in suppressing the peasants!
Tourists are money.
Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Thus the poor kid is burdened with George Alexander Louis Windsor and maybe by his 60s in the 2070s, George VII. One does wonder, with all of the efforts at dissolution and social changes, if there will still be an England or if he will face east and south 5 times a day. I won't be around then so what do I care.
You and others got to this before me:
Guessing the royal couple never heard the warning of names’ frst initials spelling something comical or worse.
One of our daughters is ‘JET’ - but so long ago before the ‘warning.’ Not bad anyway.
Another family member was ‘HEM’ before marriage.
Being ‘HET’ now is no big deal!
Ding ding ding........you get the prize!
Great-great Uncle: Lord Louis Mountbatten (murdered by the terrorist IRA in 1979)
Well, for one, they give employment to poor, uneducated, not too bright servant boys!
So, who in the family line is Alexander?
Not to bright servant boy’z serve man....man.
“Jetting off here and there. Living in palaces, catered night and day. The best of everything....and what do the royals contribute?”
Are you talking about the British royals, or the American pretenders?
