The new Royal Prince has been named! His full name is George Alexander Louis, but his official title will be His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. Louis is one of William’s names, and the Prince’s first name, George, is a nod to tradition, and the name the Queen’s beloved father took when he became King.
There have been six King Georges in the British Monarchy, so William and Kate have played it safe with an historical name. Given the baby’s Capricorn Moon, this is no surprise. Capricorn loves tradition and prefers to honour the past, so the new Prince receiving a respected family name is fitting.
Royal babies are given multiple names, but may not be called by any of them on a day to day basis. Prince George’s uncle, who goes by Harry, is really Prince Henry, so it remains to be seen with the new Royal Baby will be go by Alex, Louis or another name entirely.
Baby Prince George shares an Ascendant/Moon link with the most recent King George, who ruled the United Kingdom between 1936 and 1952. The new baby may share some of his great-grandfather’s mannerisms, as well as his leadership style. King George VI was widely loved, but he was a reluctant king who disliked the spotlight. Baby Prince George may also prefer to avoid the limelight unless absolutely necessary – after all, Scorpio is a sign that likes to keep some things private.
King George III, King George V and King George VI all ruled England in times of great turmoil. King George III ruled through the revolutions of the late 18th century, King George V ruled through World War I, and King George VI ruled through World War II. The emphasis of Mars in Prince George’s chart suggests his life will also have a military link, like his namesakes.
