TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have picked a name for their son. 

On Friday morning, the Royal Family tweeted that the baby has been named Louis Arthur Charles.

The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.

The royal baby was born on April 23. The palace said the baby prince was born at 11:01 a.m. and weighed in at eight pounds, seven ounces.

The baby is a younger brother to 4-year-old Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who turns 3 next week. Both were born at the same hospital, as were William and his younger brother Prince Harry.

The baby’s name was the subject of a flurry of bets. Arthur and James were among bookmakers’ favorites for the new prince.
