Do You Know About This Connection Between Harry Potter & Royal Baby's Name?

  • The royal baby has been named Louis and One Direction fans have their own take

Footage of Kate Middleton has emerged which shows her revealing how we should really be pronouncing Prince Louis' name.

Speaking after the announcement that the infant son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has been named Louis Arthur Charles, Professor Kate Williams said the decision was a tribute to Louis Mountbatten, as well as to Prince Charles and Prince Philip.

New royal baby Prince Louis Arthur Charles officially has a birth certificate.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte have recently welcomed a new baby brother, but how are they adapting to little Prince Louis?

Prince Louis of Battenberg was the Duke of Edinburgh's grandfather's name.

The baby is Britain's first Prince Louis in more than a century.

French and German in origin, it means "renowned warrior".

So that's Louis, Arthur and Charles as first names.

The new prince was born exactly a week ago, after Kate was admitted to hospital early Monday morning, and his name was finally announced on Friday, after a week of speculation as to what moniker the Cambridges would pick for their third child.

He is fifth in line to the throne to succeed great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

Meanwhile, Louis' big sister Charlotte is preparing to celebrate her third birthday. Louis is also part of William's full name William Arthur Phillip Louis.

It could also be a nod to Lord Louis Mountbatten, who Prince Charles described as "the grandfather I never had".

And then there's also a connection with the name to Princess Diana - as one of her nephews was named Louis Spencer.

However, Prince Charles; regular royal commitments and hectic schedule often prevent him from offering the same, hands-on care to his two - now three - grandchildren.

Prince Louis' arrival comes less than a month before the highly anticipated royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!

Bookies' favorites included Arthur, Albert, James, Alexander, Thomas, Frederick and Philip, the BBC and The Sun reported. Welcome to the royal life, Prince Louis!

William's brother, Prince Harry, has been an exception.
