Royal baby: Views on the name George Alexander Louis

Visitors to Kensington Palace have been giving their reaction to the announcement of the name of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first son.

They revealed on Wednesday that their son will be named George Alexander Louis - His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

There have been six King Georges up to now, most recently the Queen's father, although his first name was Albert and he was known to his family as Bertie.

The name Louis is Prince William's fourth name and is likely to be a tribute to Lord Louis Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh's uncle and the last British Viceroy of India before independence in 1947.

Alexander is said to be a favourite of Catherine's.
