Diana among bookies' favourites for royal baby name
LONDON (AFP) - Bookmakers reckon Prince William and his wife Catherine will name their baby after a close relative, with his late mother Diana among the early front-runners.
Betting chains were offering odds on a whole range of markets, from the baby's name to its sex, weight, godparents, hair colour and even the time and day of birth.
The baby will be third in line to inherit the throne, meaning a King John II or Queen Anne II could be on the cards.
The William Hill firm's early favourites are Frances and John at 9/1, with Charles, George and Victoria 10/1, followed by Anne, Diana, Philip, Richard and Spencer at 12/1 and Henry, Mary and Sarah at 14/1.
