London, Dec 22 (ANI):Prince Edward, Queen Elizabeth II’s youngest son, has named his second child James.

The baby boy was born to Edward’s wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, on Dec 17.

The little royals full name will be James Alexander Philip Theo.

His surname will be Mountbatten-Windsor and his title will be Viscount Severn, reports The Sun.

The Queens eighth grandchild is also eighth in the line of succession.

Edward and Sophie, who married in 1999, already have a daughter, four-year-old Lady Louise Windsor.

Bookies said that the choice of first name had saved them money.

William Hill had James at 20-1 and said only 3 pounds had been bet on the name.

Archie or Albert would have cost us dear, spokesman Rupert Adams said. (ANI)
