What is Prince George’s full name?
The five-year-old’s full name is George Alexander Louis.
It took his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, two days to announce his name.
His name was announced in a statement by Kensington Palace, which said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis.
“The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.”
What’s his full title?
His full title is His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
But he is also referred to as Prince George of Cambridge.
For schooling purposes, as the royal family doesn’t have a traditional last name, he uses George Cambridge.
Where does George Alexander Louis come from?
It is likely the name George was given in homage to Prince William’s great-grandfather King George VI.
The Queen’s father, born Albert Frederick Arthur George, was known as Albert publicly and Bertie among friends.
He selected the name George as his regal name, in part to emphasise continuity with his father, King George V.
The name Alexander is thought to pay tribute to the Queen, whose middle name is Alexandra.
Louis is one of his father’s, Prince William’s, middle name, with his full name being William Arthur Philip Louis.
It is also thought to be a nod to Louis Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh’s uncle.
Also a second cousin once removed of Queen Elizabeth II, he is said to have been close to his nephew, Prince Phillip.
His full title was Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma.
How much older is he than his little brother?
That means there is 1,741 days between the brothers, if you count the day the new prince was born.
That translates into four years, nine months and six days.
And he is 650 days older than his little sister, who was born on May 2 2015.
