Royal family welcomes new addition


Palm Beach Post

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hold their new-born child while waving to the members of the commonwealth.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles Windsor was born to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on April 23. He is the third child of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

The baby was delivered at eight pounds seven ounces at St. Mary’s Hospital at 11:01 a.m.

Windsor was likely named after his great-great-grandfather, Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg. Arthur is a common middle name of the royal family, belonging to both his father and grandfather. Additionally, the child’s third name is likely a tribute to his grandfather, Prince Charles.

Windsor is fifth in line to the throne, behind his elder siblings, his father and his grandfather.

His mother has stated that Windsor’s name is to be pronounced as “Loo-ey.”

Windsor’s elder sister, Charlotte, is the first princess not to lose her line to the throne after the birth of a younger brother.

Additionally, Windsor’s birth pushes his great-uncle, Prince Andrew Duke of York, down to seventh in line for the throne, meaning he will not have to ask the queen’s permission to marry.
