As it turned out, though, William and Kate’s first child was a boy: Prince George Alexander Louis. And news of George’s birth on July 22, 2013, was greeted with great excitement, as he would almost certainly one day be king. The young prince was honored, too, when the time came for him to be christened, with the Royal Mint creating commemorative coins to mark the occasion.
Then, on May 2, 2015, Prince George gained a sister: Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Her first middle name is in honor of the Queen, it has been reported, while her second acts as a tribute to William’s late mother and the grandmother of his children.
But, as many know, William and Kate didn’t stop at two kids. On April 28, 2018, they had their third child and second boy: Prince Louis Arthur Charles. And little Louis made history from the moment he was born, as he was the first male child to be placed behind an older sister in the line of succession to the British monarchy.
