Louis Tomlinson Offers to Send Prince Louis an Adidas Tracksuit

Louis and Louis forever.

The royal family has been expanding rapidly in 2018. As if the promise of Meghan Markle's upcoming marriage to Prince Harry weren’t enough, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their third child on Monday, which sent the Internet spiraling with guesses about the royal baby’s new name. Finally, after much speculation, the royal family confirmed the new prince’s name on Twitter on Friday: Louis Arthur Charles, known formally as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.

However, a certain fandom was quick to take note of the name’s significance. Yes, you guessed it — iconic British boy band One Direction happens to have an iconic British member named Louis Tomlinson, who now coincidentally shares a first name with the newest iconic British royal. Noting that not one but two members of the royal family share names with the boy band (Prince Harry and, now, Prince Louis), some 1D fans thought that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were hinting at their desire for a 1D reunion.

But what does the boy-bander in question make of all the attention? Louis himself chimed in on Twitter to welcome the new Prince Louis to the world and offer the promise of a birthday gift: an Adidas tracksuit, something that the singer is known to wear. He writes, "Young Louis welcome to the world. I’ll take you under my wing lad. The Adidas tracksuit is in the post!" he wrote on Twitter soon after the news of the name was announced.

Although the speculation is fun, it should be noted that both Harry and Louis are traditional names for the royals, and there's almost certainly no actual connection to One Direction. Still, Louis and Louis in matching tracksuits is absolutely something we're here for.
