Having kept the world waiting for four tantalising days, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have finally revealed their newborn son is called Louis Arthur Charles.

Royalists and bookmakers alike have waited patiently since Monday to find out the name of the new arrival and fifth in line to the throne.

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

Earlier this week Prince William teased his newborn could be given the name Alexander or the rather less traditional moniker, Jerry.

More than 100,000 bets were placed across the UK betting industry on the baby name, with both Albert and Arthur leading the way as the bookmakers' favourite.
