The howl yesterday afternoon was all the people in Britain who bet on the baby being a girl.

The new prince (so no lingering controversy about the amendments to the Act of Settlement) has presumably been named - but tradition requires at least a polite delay in the announcement of the name. (Charles and Diana waited a week, so I predict about the same gap here).

Said name has to be approved by the palace (So any Brit knows the joke about him being called "Kendall" is just that - there's no way the Queen would approve something that...modern). There's a relatively short list of names to choose from.

Lead in the betting: George. I personally like the idea of Philip.

Yeah. Still British enough to obsess about the royals. What can I say?
