Bookmakers have said Charlotte and Alice have emerged as the favorite names for the princess, followed by Olivia, Victoria and Elizabeth.

Soon we will know her name. The absence of knowledge hasn’t stopped the speculation. Elizabeth, Victoria, Alice and Charlotte have all attracted bets at the bookies.
