But neither of her sons’ names were Kate’s first choice, says royal commentator Katie Nicholl.
She previously revealed in Vanity Fair: "Courtiers insisted the pair had not found out the sex of their unborn baby, and friends close to the couple claim William wanted a surprise.
"Although Kate apparently suspected it was a boy and had set her heart on the name Alexander, they had not yet decided what to call their firstborn."
While she may not have a son with the first name of Alexander, George’s full name is George Alexander Louis.
Katie added that Kate referred to her baby bump as “our little grape”, when she was pregnant with Prince George.
His name is a nod to the Queen’s father, King George VI, who took over the throne when his brother Edward VIII abdicated.
It is said that Prince George is often referred to by the adorable nickname of “Tips”.
The pet name began as “PG Tips” like the tea brand, due to his initials P and G for Prince and George.
However, later it was allegedly shortened to just Tips.
