Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, Gives Birth to Royal Baby

What will royal baby be named?

Now that the latest royal baby’s been born, what will his name be?

The royal parents, William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, may already know, but the rest of us don’t, yet.

At it will probably be a few days until they make the official royal proclamation, CNN reported.

Albert could be a shoo-in because it would not only a tribute to Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, but also a way of honoring the royal newborn’s great grandfather and Queen Elizabeth II’s father. He was called Albert until he became king and took the reign name of King George VI, CNN and BBC reported

Many believe, no matter what name is chosen, it will be traditional.
