The royal baby is almost here, and the expectation is on an all-time high with royal fans everywhere. Without a doubt, the majority of questions still focus on the subject of the child's name.
Although it has not been announced whether the royal baby is a boy or a girl, the popular opinion believes that Baby Sussex is very likely a girl.
What are the best candidates for the baby's name?
Currently, the British betting Ladbrokes has a series of ongoing bets in several categories regarding the new royal baby – the child's sex, the most likely name for both sexes, which day of the week the baby is born, the baby's birth weight and the date range.
By far the most popular category seems to be the baby's name, with top competitions for both baby boy names and baby girl names.
Girl names take the current lead in the name category, with Diana's favorite on 6/1
A few other names round among the top ten, including Alice, Grace and Mary for a baby girl, and Albert, Philip and Arthur for a baby boy.
Is Diana a likely name choice?
Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were expecting a baby, the public has been applauding them to have a baby girl named after Prince Harry's mother, late princess Diana.
The reasons are certainly sentimental, as fans all over the world still have great love for Princess Diana, even though she has been away for many years. Whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are actually considering the name Diana for their baby is another question entirely.
Princess Diana had an infamous difficult relationship with the press as well as some members of the royal family, so while she named the baby after her would be a sweet gesture in a way, in another it would put a lot of luggage on a newborn baby .
The royal family does not like it
There are also questions about the royal family's feelings to consider. Prince Harry's elder brother, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton gave their daughter Charlotte Diana's middle name, as a nod to the late "people's princess." The principle has Prince William a number of strong feelings about naming any royal babies after Princess Diana.
Some sources claim that Prince William feels it would be inappropriate to give a new royal baby the first name Diana when Prince Charles has a new wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, and that obvious tribute to Princess Diana would be a little unseemly.
Although it is not likely that Prince William gives the baby name to his younger brother, there may be a very real royal feeling behind the idea. If it actually gives Baby Sussex the name Diana, it would be sick with someone in the family, it is certain that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be cooperative.
Even though the couple likes to do things on their own terms, they have also not shown open respect for royal protocol. There is also the question of respect – Meghan Markle, although she has never had the opportunity to meet Princess Diana, undoubtedly has so much respect for her weak son-in-law that she will never do anything that can interfere with her memory.
Whatever name the royal baby ends up receiving, it is certain that the arrival will be a joyous occasion that unites royal observers everywhere!
