Prince Charles releases statement on the birth of his new grandson

Any guesses on what Prince William, 35, and Kate Middleton, 36, will be naming their third child?

Royal baby names must also follow serious protocol.

Although the royal baby was born a few days ago, his name is still unknown.

Bookies have tipped Arthur, Albert and James as the most likely candidates for the newborn's moniker, with Alexander also appearing to be a popular choice.

It has previously been thought that Prince William and Kate had chose to delay the announcement because they didn't want to overshadow such an important day as Anzac Day. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. According to multiple royal reporters, Prince William replied, "I'm working on that", when asked about his son's name at an event Thursday night. "Can't complain about that", she wrote on Twitter (via Express). "Can't complain about that".

A source had said that Pippa and James are very much looking forward to settling down and "having children and leading a quiet life".


But, another name has crept in as a favourite - and that's Alexander.

And when another member of the crowd suggested the name Alexander, he joked: "Funny you should say that".

It turns out, the holiday itself, which honors fallen Australian and New Zealand veterans from WWI, might be part of the reason that the newborn prince's name has yet to be revealed.

Royal baby names have fascinated the public for generations.

The Prince of Wales's name remained a mystery to the wider world for a month and was only declared ahead of his christening in the Music Room of Buckingham Palace in December 1948. Well, you'd learn about Queen Victoria's husband, Albert, who lived from 1819 to 1861.

"I think when we look at George and Charlotte's birth it's been a couple of days".
