Prince Louis may only be a few days old but he has already had his first pub named after him.

The McMullen’s Brewery establishment in Great Notley, Braintree, Essex, is being refurbished and is due to open later this month.

It was painted with its new sign The Prince Louis on the day the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced Louis’s name.

McMullen’s also has a pub named after Princess Charlotte in Colchester and one after Prince George in Milton Keynes.

Prince Louis, who is fifth in line to the throne, arrived on Monday April 23, weighing 8lb 7oz – a younger sibling for George and Charlotte.
