THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced their baby son will be called George Alexander Louis.

William and Kate’s baby will be known as Prince George.

Kensington Palace said in a short statement last night: “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.”

Six King Georges have worn the crown throughout history since the German-born George I, the first Hanoverian king of Great Britain, acceded to the throne in 1714.

The last was the Queen’s father George VI, who died in 1952, but was known to his family as Bertie.

George was the most popular name with the bookies with betting firms William Hill, Coral and Paddy Power all offering short odds on the Royal couple choosing it.

The Duke and Duchess had been expected to pick a traditional name for their son, who was born at St Mary’s Hospital, in London, on Monday weighing 8lbs 6oz.
