U.S. & World

LONDON (AP) — The newest member of the royal family finally has a name. 

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge,” Kensington Palace announced on Twitter, Friday. 

Louis is William and Kate’s third child along with his brother 4-year-old Prince George and sister Princess Charlotte, who is almost 3.

The duchess, who gave birth Monday morning, emerged from St. Mary’s Hospital about seven hours later alongside her husband, holding the baby wrapped in a white blanket. The trio posed for photographers before going back inside.

The palace said Louis  was born at 11:01 a.m. (1001 GMT; 6:01 a.m. EDT) and weighed in at eight pounds, seven ounces (3.8 kilograms). 

Louis is fifth in line to the throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father and older siblings.
