Does this make Lady Louise eighth in line of succession?

Yes, Lady Louise is eighth in the line of succession after her father and before her Aunt Anne.

The following site gives the Line of Succession down to No 50.

Everything I write here is my opinion and I mean no offence by it.

What do you think of Edward and Sophie´s decision not to style Louise HRH and a princess?
Do you think the baby if it had been a boy had been named Louis?

Has somebody recorded the christening of Ingrid Alexandra?It was so nice to see all of them together as a happy family...

Actually, the name "Beatrice" was heading towards almost-extinction until Sarah and Andrew named their daughter Beatrice. Eugenie also became a more popular name. I think it's French...William and Henry became very popular names as the princes grew older.

I think more babies will be named Louise like the new Windsor baby. :flower:

If they had a son, they would probably have named him Phillip for Edward's father, Christopher for Sophie's father, William for Louise's cousin and also for her scads of 'William' ancestors, and George for Edward's grandfather.

So it'd be Viscount Phillip Christopher William George Mountbatten-Windsor.

I am very glad that the baby already has a name!
I like her name. Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten Windsor.

But what makes me really giggle is that when Lady Louise would already knows her full name maybe she would say that why was she given such a long name. When she would write it on her paper, it would reach the 2nd line. Same with me when I was still young, I only have 2 names yet I find it long. Not anymore now. :)
Well, that's tradition.

How many months will they wait before the baby would be baptized?? Is it three??
Never let go of anyone that you could not go a day without thinking about. There just might be a very good reason why they're always on your mind. Sometimes, it's the brain that knows too well what the heart tries so hard to deny

I am finding that a lot of the "old," traditional names are coming back in fashion. Sort of like fashion being cyclic, and how eventually everything comes back in style, I guess the same could be said of names! I've heard of a lot of babies being named Eloise in the past couple of months, and I hadn't heard that name other than from the kid's book until Lady Helen Taylor named her daughter that and then Prince Constantijn naming his daughter Eloise, too. And the name Maud is quite popular with some of my friends, and I had never even thought of that name until Martha Louise named her daughter that.

I guess it's sort of like the trend a few years back to give your kids last names as first names. When I was teaching, a lot of Kiefer's, Parker's, Brady's, Mackenzie's, etc.

Well...the Hannover royals have freakishly long names..but not THAT long. Crazy Portuguese royals...Haha, if they forget one of their names do they just make one up?

I.e. Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor...
= "Lady Louise Mary...Elizabeth...Victoria...Caroline...wait! No Caroline...Mountbatten...Saxe-Coburg Gotha?" (You fail&#33

Louise is a fitting name for a Lady. I am glad to see that Elizabeth and Alice was chosen as well. I am also pleased that Mountbatten was included in the surname. Long overdue, I shall think. :flower:

Lady Louise was baptised in the Private Chapel of Windsor Castle on April 24, 2004.

Her godparents were Lady Sarah Chatto, Lady Alexandra Etheington, Lord Ivar Mountbatten, Rupert Elliott and Francesca Schwarzenbach.

oh yes, the photo from louise's presentation, was a great photo session.
another photo with the queen was one taken in balmoral in august of 2004

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".
