Synthesio also found that Commonwealth countries including Australia, India and South Africa have all been discussing the royal baby a significant amount in the online world.
The research also showed that most users in the UK believe the couple will call the child Alexandra, if a girl, while US users preferred Elizabeth for a girl. George, was also a favourite for a boy’s name.
Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge are awaiting the arrival of their first child.
In December, when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced they were expecting their first child, the Royal Baby became a top trend across the world on social media site Twitter, and the hashtag #RoyalBaby is now the most retweeted one ever on Twitter.
As the world awaits the arrival of baby Cambridge, heavily pregnant Kate has been residing in London as she makes the final preparations to the couple’s new home at Kensington Palace.

I am hoping for a girl mainly because of the historic reasons: it would be the first time a QUEEN of England would actually be BORN as opposed to becoming Queen by default.
I also love the fact that, with the exception of little Prince Christian of Denmark, all of the other next generations of European heirs are girls. Spain, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands all have little girls in line for the throne. That is some serious girl power.
I feel like William & Catherine represent SUCH a modernization of the British Monarchy that a baby girl would be the perfect punctuation mark on this new day of equality for the royals…equality in being able to marry for love, live life in a more normal manner & dust off some of the antiquated ways of the past.
That being said, if a they have a boy I will be gracious in my defeat! lol xo Lulu
