Royal Baby fever is reaching a crescendo here in the UK, with the Royal couple on the brink of a brand new baby adventure. Outside St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, the “really enthusiastic” have set up camp with hopes of being some of the first to set eyes on the new arrival.

There is much speculation as to the name that will be chosen. Contenders are : Arthur, James, Alexander and Philip.

Many however are certain the nation will be welcoming a little girl, with Alice being the number one favourite, closely followed by Charlotte and Elizabeth. With the reported due date for Kate being around 25 April, we will have to wait a little longer to find out. On the last occasion, it took the Duke and Duchess three days to announce the name of Prince George Alexander Louis.
