There was talk that the name of Prince William and Duchess Kate’s third child was accidentally revealed by a glitch on the royal website. That talk came from The Daily Mail. The name that was accidentally revealed was “Albert,” as in PRINCE ALBERT. I pictured Prince Hot Ginge and THE QUEEN whispering to each other, “Do you think we should tell those bland squares what a Prince Albert is or just let them name their son after a dick piercing and a messy bareback slut prince?“, before cackling and doing another gin shot. But I guess what really happened is that Prince George took crash courses in coding on DeVry University online and decided to mess with the media by “accidentally” revealing his brother’s name on the royal website. Because Prince William and Duchess Kate announced the name of their 4-day-old baby and it’s not Prince Albert.
They’ve named their kid Louis Arthur Charles, but that’s His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge to us dirt-eating filthy peasants.

Bookies are loving this since not many bet on the name Louis.
Prince William has honored his parents in all of his children’s names. Prince George’s full name is George Alexander Louis, and Princess Charlotte’s full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Prince Charles’ full name is Charles Philip Arthur George. Or maybe all of Prince William’s kids share names with his parents because there’s only a handful of goddamn boring names those royals can choose from.
Kensington Palace sources (who are real and don’t only exist in my head) say that Prince William and Duchess Kate chose the name Louis to honor important British figure Louis Tomlinson of One Direction. Or maybe they chose the name to honor Shia LaBeouf’s best character Louis Stevens. Yeah, that must be it.
As for how Prince William and Duchess Kate pronounce Louis. They pronounce it as “Lew-ee” not “Lewis.” But really, the technical pronunciation of Prince Louis is “rich royal one who never has to worry about writing a check to himself so he can get $20 out of the ATM.”
