The reason for this wait is yet unknown, but Hello Magazine states that Prince Charles' trip to France for the Anzac Day commemorations is a possible reason for the delay.

It is said that the Cambridges may be waiting for granddad and grandson to be formally introduced before an official name will be announced.

The Duke and Duchess are not confirming anything just yet, but a technical glitch in the family's official website may be the clue we need.

Website glitch

The website offers access to individual pages for members of the royal family. The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry all have pages you can access via the main site's URL: royal.uk.

Although Prince George and Princess Charlotte have their own pages, access is restricted for now.

But, according to Daily Mail, following this link: 'royal.uk/prince-albert', leads to the same interface as George or Charlotte’s page. Which would suggest that Albert the likely name.

The wait continues

The glitch has since been resolved and it is likely that the new parents could drag this for as long as possible.


Welcome to the family. Thank you everyone for your kind wishes.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip waited for as long as a month to announce Prince Charles' name. After them, Charles and Diana waited for 7 days.

For the Cambridges, the third time round, it remains to be seen how long they'll wait.
