Royal baby’s name ‘not meant to be symbolic’

Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge didn’t intend to be “symbolic” with the names they chose for their son.

Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge weren’t sending a message with their son’s name.

Prince William and his wife Catherine Middleton welcomed their first child together on Monday. On Wednesday they announced that the little boy is called George Alexander Louis.

There have been many theories circulating regarding why this moniker has been chosen for the tot.

A source close to the couple claims that much of this speculation is highly irrelevant.

“Don’t read into [the names] too much,” a source told Us Weekly. “They are not meant to be symbolic; they are just names the couple like.”

The child is third in line to the throne, following his grandfather, Prince Charles, and father, Prince William.

George Alexander made his debut to the world on Tuesday evening, when his parents, the Duke and Duchess, emerged on the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital with the newborn cradled in their arms.

William and Catherine wore matching light blue attire as they waved to a waiting crowd and addressed well-wishers.

“He’s good a got pair of lungs that’s for sure, he’s a big boy,” William said, laughing, “Her looks, thankfully. He has way more [hair] than me, thank God.”

Catherine and the baby were discharged later Tuesday evening and travelled with William home to Kensington Palace.

“Their Royal Highnesses would like to reiterate their thanks to the hospital for the care and treatment they have all received,” read a statement from the couple.
