Royal baby: The Queen stepped in to ensure Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child Prince Louis got a royal title
Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton recently welcomed their third child, Prince Louis.
But it’s been revealed that the little tot may have had a completely different moniker if The Queen didn’t step in.
A royal rule from 1917 meant that only the monarch, their children, grandchildren and the first grandson of the Prince of Wales get royal titles.
It would also mean that if Charlotte was born first, she still wouldn’t be able to be a princess.
However, before Prince George’s birth in 2013, the Queen sought a legal notice so all her great-grandchildren get a royal title.
It was the longest the public has had to wait to find out the name of one of William and Kate’s children.
Both Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s monikers were announced two days after they left the Lindo Wing.
Charles was in France for an Anzac Day memorial when the little one was born, so Kate and Wills waited for his return before announcing Louis’ name.
The announcement was made by Kensington Palace saying: “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.”
