There’s a Magical ‘Harry Potter’ Connection to the Royal Baby’s Name
ICYMI: Prince William and Kate Middleton announced the name of their third child this morning—Prince Louis Arthur Charles. Sure, the little prince’s name pays tribute to the royal family’s lineage, but Harry Potter fans couldn’t help but notice a more magical hidden meaning in the mini-royal’s moniker
Yes, Potterheads, the baby shares his name with three members of the Weasley family.
Ready for it? First, there’s Arthur, the patriarch of the family; then there’s Charlie, the oldest son and foremost authority on dragons; and finally, there’s Louis, the youngest child of Fleur Delacour and Bill Weasley. See? The proof is in the pudding Potter.
We assume that Louis’s Weasley-inspired name was an accident, but it’s worth noting that Will and Kate are HP fans…
Could this be another one of Prince William’s dad jokes? We bloody hope so.
