DZG has proudly named a trio of seven-week-old meerkats George, Alexander and Louis in honour of the Royal Baby.
Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: “Last week we ran a competition to name the youngsters among our Facebook followers and had considered a few of their suggestions, but when Kate and William’s baby was named yesterday we just saw it as the perfect opportunity to give them a royal connection particularly as they were born in the main meerkat enclosure in the shadow of 11th century Dudley Castle, at the heart of the zoological gardens.”
She added: “After the official naming staff will be sending off an adoption pack to Prince George Alexander Louis for his namesakes at Dudley Zoological Gardens with an invitation to call in and see them sometime!”
