Kate Middleton, 36, and Prince William, 35, look likely to name the new royal baby Arthur, according to bookies - who think an insider has revealed all with a hefty bet.
The odds on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge naming their third child Arthur have been lashed to 8-1 (from 12-1) following a surge of bets over the last 48 hours, according to Coral.
This also seemed to suggest the baby will be a little boy - a choice so popular Paddy Power has stopped taking bets on the royal baby being male following a four-figure bet this morning.
These odds mean if a bet of £5,000 was placed, if a little boy is born the bookies will pay out £8,333.33.
What is more, Paddy Power is now in agreement with Coral on the most likely choice for a little boys name.iPhone transfer software
