They’re expecting their third child in April
Ever since Prince William and Kate Middleton announced they’re expecting their third child, fans have been speculating whether we’ll be welcoming another Prince or Princess and what name the royal couple will choose for their third offspring.
Bookies have even started taking bets on what the next royal baby name could be, with the names Arthur, Alice and Diana previously being favourites.
However, after recent rumours that the Duke and Duchess are expecting another baby girl, a new favourite name has emerged.
According to The Daily Star, both Paddy Power and Betfair have halted bets on the baby name Mary after a ‘flurry of bets’ were placed on it.
A spokesman for Paddy Power has said: ‘We’re convinced now that it’ll be a little girl, with Mary now four times more likely.’
John Hill from Coral has also commented on the increased popularity towards the name Mary, saying: ‘There’s something about Mary which has prompted a huge gamble in the name of Kate and Will’s third baby bet, and after this surge of interest it is now the new favourite ahead of Alice and Victoria.’
Of course, what happens if Kate gives birth to twins could throw all bets off.
If Kate and Wills do opt for the name Mary, she won’t be the first Princess Mary of Cambridge either.
Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge has also held the title, as the mother of Queen Mary.
Guess we’ll have to wait until April to find out.
