It's a name fit for a king: George Alexander Louis.

Prince William and Kate Middleton officially announced the name of their newborn son, now third in line to the throne, Wednesday.

An official statement said the baby, born Monday, would be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

Earlier Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth II visited with her new great-grandson at Kensington Palace for the first time, before William and Kate took the royal baby to visit his maternal grandparents in Bucklebury, a village west of London.
