  • HOW THE QUEEN CHANGED LOUIS' NAME

    A few years before Prince Louis was born, the Queen made changes to royal rules to allow Louis and his siblings to hold a royal title.

    Prince Louis' full name is His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge and his middle names are Arthur Charles.

    But had the Queen not made changes, Louis wouldn't have been a Prince and would have instead been known as Master Louis Cambridge or Master Louis Windsor after the House of Windsor.

    She declared that all the children of the eldest child of Prince Charles, would carry the Princess and Prince titles.

    Which is why all of Prince William's children have the royal titles.

    The move also meant that regardless of gender, the first child of William and Kate would hold precedence in the line of succession over any younger siblings.
