The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — widely known as Prince William and Princess Kate — recently welcomed their third child into the world. After learning the newest Royal baby was a boy, the public has been anxious to know the child’s name.
Although the palace hasn’t made an official announcement as of Wednesday afternoon, Prince William dropped a major hint at what his youngest son’s name could be.
At a royal engagement on Wednesday, the Duke assured his son was doing “very well” and was simply pleased with his newborn’s sleep patterns. Although the public was thrilled the baby was in good health, it was another comment that caught everyone’s attention.
Australian high commissioner Alexander Downer made a remark about “Alexander” being a great name choice for the child, reported the Huffington Post.
“Funny you should say that ― it’s a good name,” William responded. “Prince Alexander does have a nice ring to it.”
Alexander happens to be William’s oldest son’s — Prince George — middle name.
Prince William also told New Zealand’s high commissioner Jerry Mateparae that “Jerry” was a “strong name.”
The Prince has a tendency to reveal classified information before it’s time to do so. Before Duchess Kate went into labor, Prince William accidentally revealed the baby’s gender before attempting to correct himself. Despite his attempt, the story went viral leading Royals fans to believe the baby was a boy (which, obviously, turned out to be true)!
The Royal baby’s actual name is expected to be released later on Wednesday. Stay tuned!
