The name of the new royal baby has been announced today as Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge, and the internet has responded perfectly.

After Kensington Palace made the anticipated announcement on Twitter, people were quick to share their opinions and jokes on the latest addition to the royal family.

‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge,’ it said.

It’s believed that the name is a nod to Lord Louis Mountbatten – Prince Charles’ Great uncle.

Aside from Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford running through every famous person who was also called Louis, while playing Louis Armstrong’s What A Wonderful World, on today’s This Morning, they name dropped all the big ones: such as the aforementioned Armstrong, van Gaal, Walsh, Vuitton, Spence, and of course Tomlinson.

But Twitter had a much better time speculating over, joking, and quipping with the chosen name…
