Alice? Victoria? Arthur? Diana? Speculation grows

It’s no surprise that immediately after Kate Middleton’s announcement of expecting her third child, that bookmakers were being flooded with bets. Racing to the head of the Coral Next Royal Baby Name market was Alice and Victoria which were joint 10/1 favourites if of course, the child turns out to be a girl, but the extra support came in for Alice which saw Victoria drift. Arthur is trading as the shortest priced 14/1 favourites on the boy’s name.

So the speculation over the name of a Royal baby gets sparked up once more. When she was pregnant with her second child, Alice was being heavily backed in the market and was 5/2 outright favourite at one stage after having been a big 50/1 outside. Kate and Prince William settled on Charlotte, the young sister of George.

This year there has been a lot of remembrance for Princess Diana, who died 20 years ago and the name Diana, after Prince William’s mother, is trading at 20/1 in the early market, while Carole, which is the name of Kate’s mother, is a 100/1 shot. That’s right out there with Camilla which isn’t likely going to go down. This is all just hot speculation of course because the couple themselves probably don’t even have a name in mind yet.

Name of Will and Kate’s Third Child

Alice 10/1, Arthur 10/1, Victoria 12/1, Elizabeth 14/1, Phillip 14/1, Alexander 14/1, Mary 16/1, Albert 16/1, Alexandra 14/1, Catherine/Kate 16/1, Diana 20/1, Grace 20/1, Henry 20/1, James 20/1, bar 25/1

Third Royal Baby Due Date

You are looking around April or May next year for the birth of the next Royal if the timing of the announcement is usual. Generally, at the end of the first trimester, which is 12 weeks into the pregnancy, these things get announced, so that would put the due date around April or May. But things haven’t been usual with Kate, who announced her previous two pregnancies earlier because of her severe morning sickness.

That has been back this time and has already forced her to cancel an engagement. The severe morning sickness is something that most commonly happens between four and seven weeks into the pregnancy, although it can happen at any point during the first trimester.

Whoever comes out, the royal baby will be the fifth-in-line to the throne, ahead of William’s brother Harry. The new baby will be behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the succession order. There is no more jumping ahead of the queue just if you are a boy anymore, that was all changed in 2011. The latest baby will be the Prince or Princess of Cambridge,
