Prince Louis New Royal Baby Close-Up Revealed to the World!!!

5/5/2018 4:37 PM PDT

Kensington Palace just showed off Kate Middleton and Prince William's new bundle of joy to the whole world for the first time -- and he's royally cute.

The photo of Prince Louis -- full name Louis Arthur Charles -- was taken by Kate on April 26 ... just 3 days after his birth. The Royal babe looks like a natural in his first ever self-portrait ... and mighty cozy in his little white outfit.

Kensington also released an adorable pic from May 2 of Louis' older sister, Princess Charlotte, giving him a kiss on her third birthday.

As we reported ... Kate gave birth to her baby boy almost 2 weeks ago at St. Mary's Hospital in London.

Folks were placing bets on what his name would be -- the favorite was Arthur -- but it's clear now ... he's the perfect lil' Louis.

Kate Middleton & Prince William The Name of Our Royal Baby Is ... Louis Arthur Charles!

4/27/2018 5:24 AM PDT

Kate Middleton and Prince William's third child has a name fit for a king ... Louis Arthur Charles!

The name of the new little royal was announced Friday by Kensington Palace, and he will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge. Not too shabby for a 4-day-old.

As we reported ... Kate gave birth to her baby Monday at St. Mary's Hospital in London. As is tradition, the Town Crier announced the birth from the steps of the Lindo Wing of the hospital.

The smart money was on the name Arthur, because royals are traditionally named after relatives and Arthur is commonly used in the royal family. Louis was among the top contenders but was by no means the favorite. It's one of his older bro Prince George's middle names, and also one of William's.

Fittingly, his little Highness -- now fifth in line to the throne -- has taken the name made most famous by The Kingsmen ... no relation. 

Congrats! Big things to come for little Louis, we are sure.

Kate Middleton & Prince William Little Prince Louis is Already Dripping in Celeb Gifts

EXCLUSIVE

Kate Middleton and Prince William's freshly named little Prince Louis Arthur Charles may be fifth in line to the throne, but he's already ruling when it comes to raking in gifts from celebs and dignitaries.

We're told James Corden, Diane von Furstenberg and the First Family of Gabon -- the African nation whose prez is tight with the Duke and Duchess -- all threw down at least $1k on gift baskets for Prince Louis. The top spender was the First Fam, who we're told dropped $5k at Bev Hills baby boutique Petit Tresor. Here are just a few of the gifts:

-- James Corden: limited edition, 23-book Beatrix Potter collection and plush characters toy set ($750).

-- Diane von Furstenberg: 2 complete lines of organic cotton bodysuits, onesies, and other first year clothing items ($500), and wooden learning blocks in English, Hebrew, Chinese, Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, and Persian ($500).

-- First Family of Gabon: Petit Tresor Silver Treasures gift basket with silver sippy cup, rattle, keepsake box, comb/brush set, cutlery/bowl set, and cake candleholders ($3,500).

We're told they had to drop another $200 to ship the gifts from Cali to the UK.

We think Gabon's First Fam can swing the expense. Ditto for James and Diane.

Kate Middleton & Prince William It's a BOY!!! Makes First Public Appearance

9:57 AM PT -- Kate and the new bouncing royal have made their first public appearance together!

Will was also there by her side for the big reveal on the steps of the hospital. Both mom and baby have been reported to be in perfect health.

Kate Middleton has just given birth to her third child ... and it's a BOY!!!

The Duchess of Cambridge popped Monday at St. Mary's Hospital in London. The new royal was announced to weigh in at 8 lbs. 7 oz. by Kensington Palace. Prince William was at Kate's side for the birth.

As is tradition, the Town Crier announced the birth from the steps of the Lindo Wing of the hospital. The customary announcement -- complete with bell ringing and feathered cap -- was also made for Kate's other two births.

Kate and Prince William announced last September baby No. 3 was on the way but the announcement came only after the cat had been outta the bag. The royal family was seemingly forced to announce she was pregnant after canceling a public appearance due to extreme morning sickness.

She also suffered from morning sickness before giving birth to Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015. Btw ... baby No. 3 will be fifth in line to the throne -- after Prince Charles, Prince William and his 2 siblings.

Congrats!!

Kate Middleton & Prince William Bets Are On Arthur For Royal Baby Name

4/23/2018 8:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kate Middleton and Prince William haven't announced the name for their newborn son yet, but there's already a bunch of people betting it'll be Arthur.

We reached out to Ladbrokes, a major UK betting company, who's been taking bets on the new royal baby name and Arthur is the clear frontrunner.

If you're wondering why Arthur ... royals are traditionally named after relatives and Arthur is commonly used in the royal family. Both Prince Charles and Prince William have Arthur as a middle name, but it hasn't been used as a first name in a while.

Check out the top contenders:

-- Arthur 6/4
-- James 5/1
-- Albert 6/1
-- Philip 6/1
-- Thomas 10/1
-- Alexander 12/1
-- Henry 12/1

Funnily enough, it’s not looking good for daddy’s namesake. William bottoms the list at 25/1.

There are some familiar names on the potential godparent list as well ... the top contender is Tiggy Legge-Bourke, Prince William's old nanny ... and Prince Harry comes in at 10/1 -- tied with Pippa Middleton, Kate’s sister. Meghan Markle is further down at 14/1. Some celebs with not such good odds? Elton John at 50/1, David Beckham at 100/1 and Donald Trump at 1000/1.

Kate and Prince William's son was born Monday morning at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. It's their third kid, second son and fifth in line to the throne.

Prince William & Kate Expecting Baby #3 ... Intense Morning Sickness

9/4/2017 6:44 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prince William did it again ... the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with their third child, and she's really sick about it.

The royal family announced the pregnancy Monday morning, and it sounds like their hand was forced due to the fact Kate is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. Yeah, we had to Google it too -- it's basically severe morning sickness, but it's bad enough that the Duchess had to cancel a public appearance Monday.

The palace says Kate went through the same when she was pregnant with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Sounds like she'll be fine, but she's getting treatment at Kensington Palace.

Princess Charlotte is making her public debut -- and she already has to share the spotlight with her big brother, aka ... the Heir to the Throne.

Kensington Palace just released the first official photo of Prince William and Kate's baby girl -- who was born on May 2 -- and while it's an adorable shot ... it's not a solo portrait.

Prince George, who's a month shy of turning 2, is holding his little sister in the pic.

Oh, the life of the spare.

William and Kate Royal Subjects Fooled By Princess Doppelgänger

5/9/2015 2:30 PM PDT

Prince William and Kate Middleton caused a huge stir in London by taking their new baby out for a stroll amongst the commoners -- or at least they would have ... but instead a couple of look-alikes did it.  

The imposters are definitely dead ringers for Wills and Kate -- and, of course, the baby stroller made everyone think they were getting a first look at Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Several people shamelessly came up and asked for pictures.

Alas, the fake royals are really just Heidi Agan and Simon Watkinson -- they're kinda famous over there for posing as the royal couple -- but obviously not so famous they can't still fool the kingdom.

There's a new sucker born every minute.

Prince William, Kate Middleton Welcome New Daughter Whatever Your Name Is

5/2/2015 8:10 AM PDT

Kate Middleton bounced back hours after giving birth to a little girl who is now 4th in line to become England's head honcho, thanks to Prince William.

The third in line to the throne briefly left the hospital Saturday where his wife, Kate Middleton, gave birth to the 8 lb. 3 oz. baby.  William returned 10 minutes later with 1-year-old George.

Daughter and mom are doing great, and William -- who was present during the birth -- did not look the worse for wear.

The baby -- whose name has not been announced -- is now 4th in line for the throne, behind Charles, William and George ... and 5th if you count Tommen Baratheon.

 BTW ... the Queen dressed in pink Saturday for an event.  It's unclear if she had a blue dress just in case, or whether she was clued in ahead of time.

Get ready for Royal Baby Fever all over again ... Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their second child.

Buckingham Palace Kate is once again suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, as she was when she was pregnant with her Prince George, who was born last July. The condition is like morning sickness, only more severe.

Kate Middleton Post-Baby Bump, Set ... SMOKING HOT

10/18/2013 7:36 AM PDT
Kate Middleton allegedly had a baby 3 months ago -- but there is zero proof of that in these pics of the Duchess of Cambridge flashing her royal midriff all over a volleyball court.

Prince William's wife showed up for a public appearance in London yesterday, sporting wedge heels, and a banging bod that made everyone forget she was ever pregnant.

Kate gave birth on July 22 to Prince George ... and obviously hit the gym on July 23. 

Women ... begin hating. Guys ... continue wishing you were Prince William.
