Prince William hints at the royal baby name

Prince William hints at the royal baby name

At the Anzac service, William also revealed that the baby prince is sleeping well. And just seven hours after Kate Middleton gave birth to her little prince, the couple introduced their third child - whose name has yet to be released - to the public, prompting an immediate "awww" heard around the world. While the post-birth photo-op is not strictly royal protocol, it's an event that the media and members of the public have come to expect.

The latest bookmaking odds in the United Kingdom are predicting a traditional name for the new prince, with Arthur, Albert, and Philip being the top predictions for the boy's name, and Frederick and James rounding out the list.

Kensington Palace announced the news, tweeting: 'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs.

"Funny you should say that ― it's a good name", William replied.

Saudi finalizing drone regulation following incident near royal palace
Most of the detainees have been released after reaching settlements with the government. Saudi officials said King Salman was not at the palace when the incident took place.

William's comment got people so excited that some bookies shut down betting on the new baby's name because new bets started rolling in for Alexander. Television news helicopters followed the royal Range Rover as it made the mile (1.6 kilometer) journey to the family's Kensington Palace residence. The baby is fifth in line, after grandfather Prince Charles, father Prince William and his two siblings.

There's expectation he will bring 4-year-old Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who turns 3 next week, to meet their baby brother. Before the rules were changed in 2012, male heirs took precedence. While she may not have high odds for choice of godmother, Markle will still be in the child's life, as she is preparing to marry his uncle, Harry.

"George and Charlotte are very conventional, historic, English names", mentioned Williams.

One Twitter user remarked: "Kate Middleton is a BEAST..." It was only several years later when Princess Anne broke the tradition and gave birth to Peter Phillips at the hospital instead of her home.
