Sophie"s son's full name is James Alexander Philip Theo.
Theo means god in Greek

I congratulate Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, on the recent birth of their son, James Windsor, Viscount Severn!

Regarding the name of Theo, it is in fact a short form of Theobald, from the Old German meaning "brave people", or of Theodore, from the Greek meaning "gift of god".

I wish the new royal a long and healthy life.

I agree with Bella. I don´t see neither Beatrice nor Eugenie being seen in a bad light just because they were photographed as children. After all, is you are a famous person, it´s normal that you should be photographed, especially insofar as nobility. Otherwise, rumours will start immediately that there is something wrong with the child.

The photos are probably coming soon. To be brought for the Wessex Youth Trust. I expect them soon, hopefully.

I didn't even hear! That's lovely. Sophie's already 42, that gives late mothers hope!
I like the name James, too.

What a cute baby. Sophie just glows. In the first picture link posted by Shikha Pal, Prince Edward looks a lot like his brother Prince Andrew from the side IMHO

I have been email the letter patent which doesn't included anything about the kids or the entailing of either titles (progenitor). So I have forward the argument to Burke's. I think I will sent it off to BP as well but they never get back to you. Hopefully we will finally get some confermation about this.
Louise and James are automatically HRH Prince/Princess of the UK as male-line grandchildren of The Queen under her grandfather's 1917 Letters Patent.

At the request of their parents, The Queen agreed they could be styled as the children of an Earl (which they also are), but this in no way alters their rights under the current letters patent to be Prince/Princess.

The Queen has not issued a Royal Warrant or new Letters Patent removing her grandchildren's rank or titles and they remain free to assume them at any time without special permission from The Sovereign.

I was asked yesterday if James was circumsized. I remember all the fuss that was made with William and Harry and well, I'm grateful that nobody has commented anything. I was hoping for photos by now actually, James is a month old and it is Sophie's birthday tomorrow so I'm holding thumbs. My how time does fly.
