    He will one of the most familiar and favourite names of British kings in recent centuries: George. It is the name William and Kate wanted but it is also extremely . First used by the Hanoverian kings of three hundred years ago but most the name of the Queen's late father George the Sixth -- a man who was propelled upon the by the abdication crisis; who overcame a speech defect; and who, supported by his wife and two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret, helped to restore the Monarchy's and the country's morale during the Second World War.

    This morning, George the Sixth's elder daughter -- our present Queen -- went to Kensington Palace to see her great grandson: a child with the of returning her father's name to the throne.

    - It's a sort of name and this is a way of honouring the Queen because it's naming the baby after her father.

    Prince George will have two other names: Alexander -- which is said to be a favourite of Kate's -- and Louis -- a name from William's of the family. It may well be a reference to Prince Charles' favoured great uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma.

    The choice of George as the name by which he will be known seems a one.

    - George is beautiful name! It's lovely name. Great! Congratulations to the guys.

    - What better name than George? It's absolutely . And we're happy for them.

    - Well Louis sounds a bit French, but George Alexander sounds good, yeah.

    Tonight, the new Prince's name was going on the souvenir chinaware as companies the opportunities. For Prince George himself, there was a journey. After just one night in a Royal Palace, his took him to Berkshire to the Middleton Family home there. The car seat was visible in the back to Kate. There was a wave from her as they left London for what they hope will be an entirely few weeks getting to know their son; two days old now but already 'His Royal Highness, Prince George of Cambridge'.
