Diana to be the name of Harry and Meghan's first child @ 16/1 - BET NOW
Entering the pricing at 6/1, Diana looks like a standout at this early stage with a long price of 16/1 offered by one particular bookie as the gender of the baby is yet to be confirmed at this early stage.
As the world begins to chin-wag and speculate about the latest addition of the British Royal family, Alice is another favourite across the bookies and has been installed as second favourite with a consistent price 12/1.
While any bookies are swaying towards a girl’s name, if the couple do happen to have a boy, Arthur and James are early pacesetters as they enter the Royal Baby name odds at a shortest price of 10/1 and 9/1 respectively.
It has been a positive year for the Royal family as they celebrated the wedding of Meghan and Harry in May, the birth of Prince Louis in April and just last week the wedding of Princess Eugene and Jack Brooksbank.

While the focus has been on the ninth in line of succession to the British throne over the past, the spotlight firmly back on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following Kensington’s palace announcement on Monday just hours after the couple touched down in Australia for their first official visit since they tied the knot in May.
Couple of bookmakers are having a bit of fun with the names and have added a few novelty suggestions in the mix. In tribute to the UK leaving the European Union, Brexit enters the race at 500/1 while Donald is also to be found at 500/1. Whether the Donald refers to President Donald Trump or President of the European Council, Donald Tusk remains to be seen. Yet Brexit Windsor or Donald Windsor have a particularly strong ring to them/
In fitting tribute to the 44th President of the United States, the country of birth of Meghan Markle, Barack can be found a rather short 100/1 considering how out of character with the Royal family tradition the name would be.
However, as the Royal Baby will not be a Prince, unless the Queen steps in and says otherwise, the couple might use this occasion to break the mould and give their child unfamiliar name. King George V limited titles within the Royal Family back in 1917.
If a boy the Child will become the Earl of Dumbarton as the first born of the Duke can use of his father’s lesser grade peerage titles that he was given on the morning of his wedding earlier this year. A daughter could be known as Lady Mountbatten-Windsor as well as any other children the Duke and Duchess have in the future.
