Predictions For Royal Baby #3


The predictions are in! And an overwhelming number of people on Ladbrokes, a British betting company, believe that the royal couple will name baby #3 'Arthur'. Why? The name comes from part of Prince William's name, which is William Arthur Philip Louis, as well as the Queen's father, which is Albert Frederick Arthur George.


Another popular name on Ladbrokes is 'Philip', which would honor both William and his grandfather and husband to the Queen, Prince Philip.
