There is a New Royal On The Way

It’s official. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and hubby Prince William have announced their pregnancy. With the the royal couple expecting the arrival of their first child, the online world has become a flurry of excitement, in particular - baby retailers. Since Kate is known for being a style maven whose choices are often copied by thousands around the world - she can wear anything from a pair of synthetic diamond earrings to a simple wrap dress and similar items will fly off the shelves. So it’s not surprising that retailers are predicting a bump in the sale of everything from maternity clothing to onesies due to the royal news.

Another part of the story that has got people buzzing is the fact that the rules of succession are set to change and if the little bundle of joy turns out to be a girl, she could be in line to be the next Queen of England. The new bill making the change is going through British Government now. So what are some possible names for the new royal tyke?

Writer Vanessa Van Edwards recently speculated on possible baby names that Kate and William could choose in her recent article.  She looked at the statistics of top baby names in England and Wales as well as names from the royal family history.  The top five guess for a boy were:

  1. George
  2. James
  3. Alfred
  4. Frederick
  5. Edward

For a potential queen? Vanessa’s top baby girl name picks were:

  1. Sophia
  2. Amelia
  3. Victoria
  4. Elizabeth
  5. Diana

Let’s just hope Kate get’s a Blooming Bath as a baby shower gift!
