Kate Middleton Baby Name: The Favourites

Kate MIddleton is just weeks – maybe days! – away from giving birth to her and Prince William‘s first child at St. Mary’s hospital in London – and despite the sex of the royal baby still remaining a mystery, the bookies’ are getting busy placing their bets on what Kate and Wills’ will name their little one.

According to betting company Ladbrokes, the current front-runners are the fairly traditional Alexandra for a girl (4/1), and George for a boy (10/1). We could get on board with those! Charlotte, Victoria, Diana, James, Philip and Alexander are also being backed as high contenders, and even Tulisa and Rylan have made an appearance with odds at 500/1. Teehee.

It seems to be baby name fever this week, with fellow pregnant celebrity Frankie Sandford from The Saturdays revealing she’s considering the name London for her and Wayne Bridge‘s baby, which is due in November. Will Kate and Wills follow suit and opt for Windsor, perhaps?

We can’t wait to find out. In the meantime, check out the rest of the bookie’s favourites for the tiny royal arrival below!
