The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their third baby into the world on Monday 23rd April.

Kate gave brith to a baby boy at 11.01am on Monday 23rd April, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kept the name of their son under wraps for several days. They've now revealed the new royal baby's name is Louis Arthur Charles.

Kensington Palace wrote, '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'. [sic]

The news of the new Royal baby was first confirmed by a statement released on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account. It read, 'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.' [sic]

The latest arrival is fifth in line to throne and the couple's third child together. After marrying on 29th April 2011, the Royal couple welcomed Prince George into the world on the 22nd July 2013 and Princess Charlotte on the 2nd May 2015.
