Two days have passed since William and Kate welcomed their third child and we are still waiting to find out the name of the boy.
On Wednesday, Prince William joined Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey after the couple attended a dawn service commemorating Australian and New Zealand soldiers serving in armed conflicts. And he also gave us some updates about his second son. William revealed that the baby is doing “very well, thanks,” and said all parties involved are “in good form, luckily.”
“Sleeping’s going reasonably well so far, so he’s behaving himself, which is good,” he added.
However, in a conversation, he may have dropped a hint about his newborn son’s name.

During the event, someone in the crowd suggested the name Alexander for the baby. Prince William replied: “Funny you should say that.”
Prince George’s middle name is Alexander. His full name is George Alexander Luis. Also the name it is believed to have been picked by the couple to honor the Queen. Queen Elizabeth II middle name is Alexandra. (Full name: Elizabeth Alexandra Mary). Moreover, Prince Philip‘s grandfather was named Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg.
Later, during a conversation with Sir Jerry Mateparae, New Zealand High Commissioner to the U.K., the Dean of Westminster joked that Mateparae would like to throw his own name into the ring. “Jerry would like it to be Jerry,” he said.
“Jerry’s a strong name,” William answered.
We expect the name of the baby to be announced these days. George and Charlotte’s names were announced two days after their births.
William also told the press outside the hospital that they would find out “very soon” when he was asked about a name for the new baby boy.
Kate and William’s third child was born on Monday at 11:01 a.m. The couple introduced their son to the public 7 hours after the birth.
