Bookies Predict This Will Be The Royal Baby's Name

1 min read

We know where our money is going!

The official Sussex Royal Instagram account shared the news in the early hours of the morning, sharing that Meghan had given birth to a boy weighing seven pounds and three ounces (3.2 kilograms). In a public statement, Harry said Meghan and the newborn were doing "incredibly well" and that they were still thinking about names.

"It's been the most amazing experience I could ever imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But, we’re both absolutely thrilled. And so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing," he said.

"For us, I think we’ll be seeing you guys in probably in two days time, as planned, as a family... so everyone can see the baby."

Now, we know what you're thinking, 'That's cool and all, but what about the name?'.

Sportsbet has released the most likely names with Alexander, James, Arthur and Spencer all coming in at under 10.00 odds. Philip, Arthur, Allegra, Charles, Gregory, Oliver and Edward make up the next few bets under 15.00.

Adding to speculation, Fitzy and Wippa caught up with royal butler Grant Harrold (he used to work for Prince Charles) to chat all things Baby Sussex.

The butler revealed that Meghan and Harry are likely to go for a traditional name, but could go down the side of either parent's families:

"What I do know and what I think I know, is that they will pick a couple of names. Because if this child for some reason became King, even though it's 7th in line, they'll still obviously be sensible with this and it will have possibly three or four names", explained Grant.

"And, the reason being that if, and when the child became King they'll have a pool of names to choose from", he added.

It should also be noted that 'Thor' is technically on Sportsbet's list, but at 501.00 odds.

So, not great.
