Royal Baby on the Way, Place Your Bets
Bets are already been placed on whether the baby will be a boy or a girl, one or two, and what names will be chosen. Traditional names or not, what do you think?
With the announcement this week that Prince William and Kate Middleton, his bride of about 18 months, are expecting their first child in 2013, bookies are looking to rake in the dough.
According to The Daily Mail, bets were already being placed on the possibility of a royal birth in 2013. Well that one’s been settled, but there are plenty of other possibilities. Will it be a boy, or a girl — and what if it’s twins? Will it be a pigeon pair or will the royal couple’s firstborn be two boys or two girls? Just a thought here, I guess the firstborn, even if by seconds, would be the heir to the throne.
Bets are also being placed on names — lowest odds on the traditional names — John, Charles and Francis for a boy. The favorite for a girl is Elizabeth, with Diana not far behind.
What are your thoughts on appropriate names for the firstborn child of Prince William and Kate Middleton? Traditional names as bookies seem to believe? Or do you think they will surprise us all and step outside the royal box on this one?
