After months of speculation, the Royal Baby betting market is officially closed:

HRH The Prince of Cambridge now has a name: George Alexander Louis!

  • George Alexander Louis, Parents

The 31-year-old Kate Middleton gave birth to the prince on Monday, and the couple took him home from the hospital last night, just over 24 hours later.

Not before providing us with some precious Royal Baby photos, fortunately.

The couple confirmed the Royal Baby's name on Twitter moments ago:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis," Clarence House confirmed.

As per the pomp and pageantry of aristocratic tradition, the baby's arrival, and the eventual announcement of its gender, was heralded via a royal declaration.

Signed by Kate's doctor, the notice was taken to Buckingham Palace via police escort, and placed on an easel outside the palace. Standard royal protocol.

William, 31, was by his wife's side when they went to the hospital, was present during the child's birth, stayed the night and then drove the family home.

"We could not be happier," the new dad said following the child's arrival.

Fun Fact #1: As for the royal baby's last name ... it's unclear. According to the BBC News, mom and dad have to pick! It could be Wales, like dad; Cambridge, like the royal house bestowed on his parents by Queen Elizabeth II; or Mountbatten-Windsor, the two-for-one surname of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth's husband. We'll see!

Fun fact #2: Little George is the son of Prince William, who's the son of Prince Charles, who's the son of Queen Elizabeth II, who's the daughter of George VI, who's the brother of Edward VIII and the son of George V, who's the son of Edward VII, who's the son of Queen Victoria, who's the granddaughter of George III … who ruled during the American Revolution.

Congratulations again to the happy couple! Vote in our poll below:

She wore the cheapest looking dress. I thought at first she was still in a hospital gown, and those horrid and bizarre,high wedgie shoes that I'm amazed she didn't trip in. Then in the car on their way to her mother's {who seems to be running the marriage as well as pimping kate out to start with 10 years ago}, she was wearing no make up and didn't bother with her appearance in the least. Compare that to gorgeous Diana after William was born. William didn't even wear a jacket to introduce his son...these two are a disappointment as far as how they display themselves. Nothing much "royal" about them. They're making a mistake with that. Check out photos of Diana and Charles with baby William outside the same hospital. They did the public introduction better, with more class.

Oh stuffy ole Charles in his stuffy pin striped suit with his plastered down hair, showing no love or affection toward his wife and child....mummy the old bat herself, is smart not to give Charlie the throne...Harry and Wils were lucky to have Diana as a mum. God forbid if there is ever another Elizabeth or Chas...

I wonder if Kate will be able to WITHSTAND all of the STRESS that the queen will ENGULF her with. Kate, just STAND your GROUND, and be YOURSELF. You look like a very HAPPY mum now, and you have an incredible WELL RAISED husband. GOOD LUCK.

Hoping they call him Alex George is so old sounding. Wasn't George III the insane king? Think George VI the reluctant king after Prince of Wales gave up throne for Mrs Simpson. Glad this couple seem like normal people. Queen Elzabeth always seems to be a very cold person. I think Diana changed the dynamics of this family.

Spare Time, *BINGO* you go tit. In staying with the OLD tradition, is just too LAME. We are in the 21st Century, so I wonder why they keep living in the past. Sounds like there was a Insane King, and another one that gave up the throne and oh Yes, we have another Chuckie that was HOPING to get in the H IGH seat, and he MYSTERIOUSLY lost his WIFE in an ACCIDENT?? in a Paris tunnel. ? Tell, me WHO would stand to GAIN the most by Diana's DEATH? That being said, he SAVED a palace for the Queen, and NO ALIMONY had to be PAID out... Can you GUESS? Dodie Fayed's dad, has that guy PEGGED for what he really is, and now, after the DEATH of Diana, he is married to Camilla, the cheap LAY. There seems to be a SIMILARITY to this marriage ONLY, but the LACK of love was in Diana's marriage, and she couldn't take the PRESSURES from the Queen. Didn't get any respect, and went into DEPRESSION, and the FEROCIOUS arrival of ALMOST/MAYBE a suicide. I say maybe, because, that is what the MATRIARCH wanted the PEOPLE of London, and the UK to believe. It was all Diana's FAULT, not the queen.
