Nicola Coughlan from Derry Girls thinks Prince Louis is a step in the right direction for Anglo-Irish relations

Something to think about…

IN CASE YOU hadn’t yet heard, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, today announced the name of their third child, who was born on Monday April 23.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge named their second son, who is fifth in line to the throne, Louis Arthur Charles, and the child will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.

So far, so standard.

Now, enter Nicola Coughlan.


The actress, who plays Clare in Derry Girls, is fairly certain that this choice of name will do more for Anglo-Irish relations than many of us may have initially realised.

And she took to Twitter to say as much.

Another great day for Anglo-Irish relations, thanks Will and Kate for honoring our patron saint #PrinceLouis

Surprisingly, not everyone is as convinced as Nicola that the royal couple named their son after Kiltimagh’s most famous export.

Although, why they wouldn’t have is beyond us.

And with that, Twitter users decided to throw in their two cents, and speculate over who the newborn might have actually been named after.
