Prince Louis Birth

On 4 September 2017, Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were expecting their third child. A son was born at 11:01 BST (10:01 UTC) on 23 April 2018. Seven hours later, the kid was shown to the public, outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital. On 27 April 2018, it was announced that the baby had been named Louis Arthur Charles, the first and last names honouring his paternal great-great-great-uncle Lord Mountbatten and his paternal grandfather the Prince of Wales, respectively.

Prince Louis Title and succession

Louis is, from birth, a prince of the United Kingdom, entitled to the style of Royal Highness under letters patent issued by his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, on 31 December 2012, which gave the title and style to all children of the Prince of Wales’s eldest son.

Prince Louis is fifth in the line of succession to the British throne, behind his grandfather, father and older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Following the implementation of the Perth Agreement, which replaced male-preference primogeniture with absolute primogeniture, he is the first British prince to be ranked behind an elder sister in the line of succession.
