Upon hearing the news on Wednesday that Prince George is the name of the newborn son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George couldn't have been more excited.
Whether it was Prince George, a city in northern Canada, or Prince George County in Virginia, or Prince George's County in Maryland, all of them plan to celebrate their latest connection to royalty in their own particular way.
"We're certainly thrilled as a city to share his name,'' Mayor Shari Green of the Canadian city told TODAY.com. "It is a very traditional name, and now we're moving forward with it in the modern era."
The largest city in northern British Columbia, Prince George plans on celebrating the baby's name by inviting the royal couple and their son to visit in 2015, when the city will be celebrating its 100th anniversary.
The city, which was named in honor of King George III, has had royal visits before. Queen Elizabeth II, the royal baby's great-grandmother, traveled to Prince George in 1990 to take part in the opening of the University of Northern British Columbia. Prince William and the Duchess Kate also made Prince George one of their first stops after their wedding in April 2011.
