Arthur favourite to be name of new royal baby

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a new son

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a new baby son
1 of 1

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are celebrating the birth of a bouncing baby boy, and while the nation waits for the announcement of his name bookmakers have made Arthur the 2-1 favourite.

A traditional name is expected to be the most likely option after their first two children were named George and Charlotte, and James, Philip and Albert are next in the market.

Michael, the name of Kate Middleton's father, is a 22-1 shot while Charles is 25-1. 

Before the birth was announced some punters had backed Elizabeth due to the Queen's birthday celebrations, and while that now seems highly unlikely Betway have reported a flurry of bets on Alfred, which is 25-1. 

Those who think Wills and Kate may swerve tradition can back Wayne, Tyrone or Nigel at 500-1.
