Instantly Prince Louis of Cambridge’s name was compared to former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson’s.

The 26-year-old singer took to social media to welcome the new baby Prince Louis into the world offering to take him “under [his] wing”.

Hilariously, the star also offered to post the new royal an “Adidas tracksuit”. Now, that would be interesting to see.

Of course, soon after the hilarious memes from fans emerged.

Some very, er, interesting photoshop skills came to light on Twitter.

Even more hilariously, the two Louis’ have sisters with the same name: Charlotte.

Someone else noted now two members of One Direction now have royal names.

British department store John Lewis also had a brief change in name.

Another Twitter user made the interesting connection between the new prince and the 2001 film The Princess Diaries.

It’s an ode to the cat which stars in the film apparently…

Oh how great the Internet can be.
