Earlier today, we were all happy to learn that Kate Middleton gave birth to royal baby #3. A baby boy, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are yet to release their third child's name — and we may have to sit tight before we get any updates.

So what's the cause for the delay? "The reasoning is perhaps two-fold. On one hand there's a desire to inform the families before a public declaration is made and any new parent appreciates having a little private time to get to know their new addition before the onslaught of announcements," commentator Victoria Arbiter explained to Town & Country via email.

The names of Prince George and Princess Charlotte were kept under wraps for two days before the public announcement was made. Back in 1948, Queen Elizabeth II waited an entire month to announce Prince Charles's name. We're all for royal tradition, but we're just antsing to know the litte one's moniker!
