George Alexander Louis is the name that Kate Middleton and Prince William have given their first-born son and the third in line for the British throne.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced the name of their newborn child on Wednesday in a statement from Kensington Palace. He will formally be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

The new parents took a trip to the home of Kate’s parents – Michael and Carole Middleton – on Wednesday in rural Bucklebury. Earlier on Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth II met her royal great-grandson on a 30-minute visit to Kensington Palace.

Pippa Middleton and her boyfriend Niko Jackson met the baby at the couple’s apartments at Nottingham Cottage. Prince Harry has also been introduced to his nephew. Prince Charles, Camila and the Middletons first met the child at St. Mary’s Hospital on Tuesday. Prince William and Kate left the hospital later that day after posing for photographs with their son and briefly speaking to the press.

The duchess gave birth to Prince George on Monday, July 22 at 4:24 p.m. local time. He weighed 8.6 pounds.
