It seems like Kate Middleton‘s been pregnant for about six years, but the time is finally nigh! Apparently the bookies have a bet on that Kate will give birth to Prince William‘s kid before Monday, and let’s hope they’re right because this shit needs to happen already.
From Digital Spy (via William Hill betting agency):
Those three days are the 10-1 favorites, while odds of 12-1 are being offered on the royal baby being born on Tuesday (July 9) or Wednesday (July 10).
Bookmakers have given 25-1 odds of the future monarch arriving in August.
Punters continue to place more money on Middleton giving birth to a girl (4-7) than a boy (5-4), with Alexandra (7-2), Charlotte (11-2) and Elizabeth (7-1) the three most popular girls’ names.
George (10-1) and James (12-1) are the favorite boys’ names.
Hmm, that’s all a bit boring, isn’t it? Charlotte is THE WORST name, so I’m not with that. Alexandra is okay, I suppose. Elizabeth is classic (obvs) but also a little old-fashioned… I dunno, I know they have to be posh so thankfully we won’t be getting a Madison or Aidan or whatever, but let’s spruce it up a bit, can we?
Apparently the press are already starting to assemble outside St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, where Kate’s going to give birth – happens to be the same place William himself was born. Bit early for all that – Kate’s not even there! I suppose they should head over to her parents’ Berkshires mansion soon, too, since she’s going to move there after having the kid? Also, there will have to be a Diana reference somewhere in the kid’s name (particularly if it’s a girl). I’d be surprised if there wasn’t.
