The Duchess of Cambridge wanted to call Prince George another name before he was born.

  • The Duchess referred to her bump as their 'little grape' but George wasn't her first name for a boy.
  • Prince George was born in 2013 and is third in line to the throne.
  • This follows royal news that the Queen is set to break a record made by the Queen Mother.

What did the Duchess of Cambridge want to call Prince George?

According to a royal expert, Kate liked the name Alexander.

Royal insider Katie Nicholl told Vanity Fair: "Although Kate apparently suspected it was a boy and had set her heart on the name Alexander, they had not yet decided what to call their firstborn."

However, Kate still got to use the name Alexander as it's one of Prince George's middle names, as well as Louis, which they called their second son.

This comes after Kate's wedding dress maker revealed how the gown reflected her personality.

Royal dressmaker Chloe Savage explained: "Every bride's dress is a statement of themselves. 

"A good wedding dress designer will help you show off both your figure and everything about you to the best.”
