LONDON (AP) — Royal officials say Britain’s new prince has been named George Alexander Louis.

Palace officials said Wednesday that the 2-day-old baby and third-in-line to the throne will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

Earlier in the day, the baby met his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

His parents — Prince William and Kate — then brought him to Kate’s parents in their village near London — pretty much like any regular family.
