The new royal baby Prince Louis, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child, officially has a birth certificate. The document was released today, just over a week after the child was born on Monday, April 23.
The certificate shows the royal baby’s full name and title: His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge. Just like his older two siblings, the infant does not have a last name. Neither do his parents, who are listed as His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis Duke of Cambridge and Catherine Elizabeth Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge.
The Duke of Cambridge officially signed the birth certificate at Kensington Palace this morning with a registrar from the City of Westminster as a witness, according to royal correspondent Omid Scobie.
The birth certificate also arrives just days after the royal baby’s name was finally announced. Anticipation for the little one’s moniker was higher than usual this time around, as the Duke and Duchess waited four days after the child’s birth before announcing his name. In the past, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, they announced two days later.
Louis (pronounced “loo-wee”) means “famous in battle” or “famous warrior” and originates from Germany and France. As the birth certificate shows, the name also appears in Prince William’s full name. It’s also in Prince George’s full title: George Alexander Louis.
The youngest royal’s middle names also have significance in the royal family. The name Arthur goes even farther back in the royal family. The full name of King George VI (the Queen’s father) was Albert Frederick Arthur George and Queen Victoria even named her seventh child Prince Arthur, who eventually would became the Duke of Connaught and Strathearn.
Charles is an obvious hat tip to the baby’s grandfather, the Prince of Wales, and a subtle nod to Prince Harry, whose full name is Henry Charles Albert David.
