The highly-anticipated announcement of the new royal baby name was made via Kensington Palaceâ€™s official Twitter account on Thursday, prompting an outpouring of emotion from royals fans around the world. As the odds on Louis had previously been 33/1, many expressed surprised at the choice.
Some were quick to comment on the historical significance behind the name, while others opted to share strong opinions.
After arriving at St. Maryâ€™s Hospital in London on Monday, Kate Middleton gave birth to her third child with Prince William at 6 a.m. EST. The couple then introduced Prince Louis to the world outside the hospitalâ€™s private Lindo Wing just as they did with their first two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
