Kate Middleton Baby Gets Official Royal Title

Kate Middleton may not have decided on a name for her and Prince Williams royal baby yet, but it has just been given its official royal title by the Queen. 

“The royal couple’s child will officially be known as His or Her Royal Highness Prince or Princess of Cambridge,” a rep for Kensington Palace announced yesterday, making it the first royal in history to own the title.

The official royal baby naming comes after Kate and Will were bestowed with their own Duke and Duchess of Cambridge titles by the Queen on their wedding day, back in April 2011.

The Mayor of Cambridge, Councillor Paul Saunders, is understandably delighted with the new announcement. “It’s a great honour and I’m sure the people of Cambridge will appreciate it greatly”, he said. “I think it’s lovely to continue the close link with the Royal family. I think anything which helps to keep Cambridge in the public eye is a good thing as we rely on tourism.”

But as for the baby’s actual name? Well, the bookies may be gunning for Alexandra or George to come up trumps, but royal sources reveal we may be waiting a while to learn of Kate and Wills’ choice. “The couple have yet to decide on a name and probably won’t until the day of the birth,” a palace aide told US Weekly. 

And considering the fact that Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana took a whole seven days to name son Will, it doesn’t look like the royals are one’s to rush such an important decision…

Kate is due to give birth any time now, where sister Pippa and husband Will will be on hand to give support during the exciting royal delivery in the private Lindo wing of St. Mary’s hospital in London.

Eek, we can hardly wait!
