Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Royal Baby Name Odds Revealed
If you've only just woken up you probably won't know but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first baby.
Apparently they announced it at Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank - impeccable timing, guys. Surely this is on par with proposing during the newlyweds' dancing waiters.
The couple have been married for just over five months. Some would say they haven't messed around - but, of course, we're not that crude.
Anyway, if you're feeling lucky on this pretty gloomy Monday morning, why don't you stick a tenner on one of the odds on favourites for the new baby's name?
Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.

At the moment, Victoria is leading the way with odds of 8/1.
According to Ladbrokes, Albert, Arthur and Philip follow close behind if Meghan gives birth to a little boy, while Elizabeth is fancied at 16/1 and of course, Diana is up there also at 16/1.
At 100/1 it seems unlikely the baby will be called Samantha after Meghan's troublesome sister. But our favourite up to yet has to be Barry - at 150/1. Definitely worth a couple of quid. Do it for the fans, guys.

Jessica Bridge from Ladbrokes told LADbible "Given this child will be in line to the throne, it's probably a safe assumption that the couple will opt for a regal name that has been used in the royal family over the generations.
She added: "However, with Meghan's USA roots it would be remiss of bookmakers to rule out an American moniker featuring somewhere."
Here are some of the odds from Ladbrokes latest betting figures for the name of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first child:
Doria, the name of Meghan's mum, is at currently 50/1 and Boris is at 250/1.
This is all well and good - but we don't even know what gender this Royal baby will be. But, if you fancy a wager on it, the odds are 10/11.
The new arrival for the pair, which is due in Spring 2019, will be the seventh in line to the throne.
