“Kate and William could be a little more adventurous by opting for a modern, popular name”

If history is anything to go by, it could be the only glimpse the public get of the newborn for a while, as Kate shielded George from public eyes after the initial unveiling.
Both George and Charlotte were delivered late, leading fans to christen the countdown the “Great Kate Wait” on social media.
Once the baby is eventually born, the Palace will issue another announcement detailing the sex, time of birth and weight of the new arrival.
Prince William, 35, and Kate, 36, reportedly do not yet know the sex of their child, but that hasn’t stopped speculation.
Some experts have concluded the shape of Kate’s bump – protruding and resembling a netball – suggest a boy is on the way.
Bookies however disagree, offering 4/5 odds that another girl is on the way.
The favourite name for the new arrival is currently Mary, sitting at 3/1, closely followed by Alice at 6/1.
Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes, said: “The Royals very rarely deviate away from the core roster of traditional, regal names, but punters are beginning to think that with the heir and the spare already in line to the throne, Kate and William could be a little more adventurous by opting for a modern, popular name such as Amelia or Olivia.”
As with previous royal births, a vast team of staff will be on hand to assist with the delivery.
Despite the heavily anticipated Royal Wedding stealing much of the limelight, Kate’s approaching due date will no doubt send Brits into a royal frenzy once again.
The new arrival will be fifth in the line to the throne.
