The public are backing Alice as the favourite name for the new Royal baby, which is due anytime.
The Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth this week, and will do so at Lindo wing at the private St Mary’s Hostpital, where she also gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Now the public are eagerly awaiting the newest Royal, and the Bookmakers remain convinced it will be a girl with the current favourite in the name market being Alice, although there has been some interest in one boy’s name.
“Girl names are still dominating this market, but rather than Mary – it is Alice which is now leading the market,” revealed OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“Alice has now been cut to 4/1 and is comfortably ahead of Mary and Victoria in the betting.
“However, the big move has been for a boy’s name in the shape of Arthur – that is now into 5/1 after Bookmakers reported substantial money coming in – yet still the public fully believe that it will be a girl.”
