Prince George Alexander Louis
Prince George is the firstborn son of Prince William and Duchess Kate. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed George in July 2013, two years after the couple wed at Westminster Abbey in London in April 2011.
George is the future king of England, in line for the British crown after his grandfather, King Charles III, and his father. He is the third great-grandchild of the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, and the first grandchild of Charles and the late Princess Diana.
The prince’s moniker is a nod to the monarchy, honoring King George VI, who was Elizabeth’s father and the last reigning King George of England. The young royal’s middle name is a tribute to one of Elizabeth’s middle names, Alexandra. Louis comes from Philip’s late uncle Louis Mountbatten and William, who bears it as a middle name.
George became a big brother in May 2015 when his sister, Princess Charlotte, was born and again in April 2018 when brother Prince Louis arrived.
