The royal baby will henceforth be known as George Alexander Louis.
Makes me feel a bit silly for taking "Jed" in the office pool.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made the announcement Wednesday. The boy has the same name as Queen Elizabeth's father, King George VI (you may remember Colin Firth playing him in "The King's Speech"). When the boy becomes king, he will become King George VII. Until then, he'll be Prince George of Cambridge.
This kid has absolutely no idea what he's in for.
George was born Monday, meaning it only took a couple days for the royal couple to decide on a name. According to the BBC, it took Queen Elizabeth a month to name George's grandfather, Prince Charles.
After showing off the royal bundle Tuesday while leaving the St. Mary's Hospital in London, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are getting "to know their son," according to Kensington Palace.
British media is feverishly reporting -- because they don't report things any other way -- that the couple took their new boy to the village of Bucklebury, where Catherine's parents live. Earlier Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth II went to Kensington Palace to see the newborn for the first time. His Uncle Harry paid a visit, too, the palace told reporters. The couple has been mum about their immediate schedules.
The 8-pound, 6-ounce boy is now third in line to the throne, behind Charles and William.
