Speculation has begun

Speculation has begun over the name of the new Royal baby as the Duchess of Cambridge went into labour at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital today.

Alice and Arthur have topped the list of most popular names as bookies expect the royal couple to opt for a traditional name.

Jessica Bridge from Ladbrokes said: “It’s the A-Team leading the way currently with Alice and Arthur the joint favourites to be the moniker Kate and Wills opt for. It’s incredibly patriotic that the baby is probably going to be born on St George’s Day, and punters are quids in who believed she would give birth on her due date.”

Other favourites are Arthur, Albert and Philip for a boy and Mary while Alice and Victoria for a girl.

Odds on a baby girl being called Alice were slashed from 7/1 to 5/1 as the Duchess was admitted to hospital. Odds on a baby boy being called Arthur also stand at 5/1, Ladbrokes added.
