Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge on Friday revealed the name of their third child.

The Royal baby is named Prince Louis Arthur Charles and he will join his other older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Duke of Cambridge said their newborn and the Duchess are in “good form” and added "sleeping is going reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself which is good news".

Albert, Arthur and James were termed as the favourites for the child’s name by various reports. While, Philip, Alexander, Frederick, Thomas and Edward were other frontrunners for the name.

Traditionally, Royals keep the public guessing before revealing the name. Prince William and Kate conveyed the name to the Queen and rest of the family before making a public announcement.

On Thursday, the Duke of Cambridge joked to the UK Sir Jerry Mateparae about the royal baby’s name.

Sir Mateparae said: "Jerry would like it to be Jerry", to which the Duke replied "Jerry's a strong name".
