His Royal Highness is third-in-line to the throne and on July 24, 2013, it was announced that the baby would be called His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. The Prince was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace on October 23, 2013.
