After weeks of speculation over baby names, Pippa Middleton and James Mathews have finally revealed the name of their firstborn – Arthur Michael William Matthews.

According to The Mail on Sunday, the new parents have named their son after various family members, including Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Louis – who all share the middle name Authur.

The name also reportedly pays tribute to James’ late brother Michael, who disappeared in 1999 while attempting to climb Mount Everest aged just 22.

Michael is also the name of Pippa’s father and it appears William is a nod to Pippa’s brother-in-law Prince William.

At the time of their son’s birth, spokeswoman for Pippa Middleton and her husband said, “James and Pippa have had a baby boy. He was born Monday 15th October at 1.58pm, weighing 8lb and 9oz. Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well.”

Pippa brother James Middleton was the first to visit the new bub, who was born at the Lindo Wing in London – the same place where Kate’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were born.
