Royal baby birth certificate: Prince Louis’ full details REVEALED (and William’s job)

Prince Louis’ birth certificate has been revealed, with Prince William confirming the royal baby’s name and birth date – as well as signing off on his own “occupation” as “Prince of the United Kingdom”.

The royal baby was born on April 23 and, other than his first official photoshoot outside Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, Prince Louis has been getting used to royal life in the privacy of Kensington Palace.

Today the new prince’s birth certificate was made public, confirming the name Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge.

The birth certificate also included the details of Prince William, who signed his name, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. Both listed their “occupations” as Prince and Princess of the United Kingdom.

The birth certificate confirms the royal baby’ title as His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge – but no surname is given, as is tradition.

The Royal Family website says: “For the most part, members of the Royal Family who are entitled to the style and dignity of HRH Prince or Princess do not need a surname, but if at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.”

The royal baby’s name is believed to be a touching tribute to Lord Louis Mountbatten, Prince Charles’ beloved great uncle and Prince Louis’ grandfather, who was killed during the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Lord Mountbatten was killed in 1979 when the IRA planted a bomb in his boat during a leisure trip to Sligo, with then-Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams stating the death was “unfortunate” but the result of a “war situation”.

Three others, including two children, died when the IRA detonated a bomb as Lord Mountbatten went lobster-potting in Mullaghmore, 12 miles from the border with the north of Ireland.

Mr Adams said six weeks following the bomb: “I think it is unfortunate that anyone has to be killed, but the furory created by Mountbatten’s death showed up the hypocritical attitude of the media establishment.

“What the IRA did to him is what Mountbatten had been doing all his life to other people and with his war record I don’t think he could have objected to dying in what was clearly a war situation.

“He knew the danger involved in coming to this country. In my opinion, the IRA achieved its objective: people started paying attention to what was happening in Ireland.”

This isn’t the first time Kate and William have honoured Lord Mountbatten with their baby name choices.

Prince George’s middle name is Louis, also a tribute to Lord Mountbatten.
