We just set eyes on the royal baby for the first time yesterday and now it's official the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's newborn son - who arrived at 4:24pm on Monday July 22 2013 weighing 8lbs 6oz - is called *does drum roll on desk* George Alexander Louis. Who'd have thought it?

Kate Middleton and Prince William have opted for a traditional moniker for the little prince and when he takes to the throne he will be the seventh King George to rule - the last being our very own Queen Elizabeth's father.

Other famous Georges include, actor George Clooney (of course!), Wham veteran George Michael, former US presidents George Bush and George Bush Senior, musician George Harrison, director/actor George Lucas, footballer George Best, TV personality George Lamb, playwright George Bernard Shaw... THE LIST GOES ON!

After much delight from the Leos of Britain, who thought the baby would be born on Tuesday, the royal bundle of joy is in fact, a Cancerian. AND guess what? The new prince is in good company with the likes of 50 Cent, Cheryl Cole and Ernest Hemingway just some famous Cancerian babies.
