Prince Arthur or Princess Alice? What will the new royal baby be called?

Within minutes of Kensington Palace announcing the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child, speculation is already rife over what the new arrival will be called.

It isn’t thought that the Duke and Duchess themselves even have names picked out yet, but the bookmakers are already cashing in on people trying to get lucky.

The current market leader is Princess Alice at 7/1 for a girl, and Prince Arthur for a boy with odds of 10/1.

Other market leaders include Victoria (10/1), Alexandra (12/1), Albert (14/1) and Philip (14/1).

Despite these popular and traditional names, there are also some outsider suggestions that you can put a bet on.

You can put a stake on the new baby being called Prince Donald (200/1), Prince Paddy (200/1), and Princess Camilla (100/1).

There’s a 4/1 chance that the couple are expecting twins next summer, whilst triplets are still a distinct possibility at 50/1, according to the bookies.
