It comes just before their daughter’s third birthday. Charlotte turns three on Wednesday, her first birthday as an older sister and a middle child.

The Cambridges waited four days to announce the name of their newborn, with William teasing the difficulty in choosing one at a number of events soon after the birth.

There will be no additional childcare for Prince Louis, as William takes time off to help Catherine and their current nanny.

As the third child of Prince William, Prince Louis of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne.
