Diana, Alice and Arthur are among the favourites in Betfair's Royal Baby Name betting after rumours of another new arrival were confirmed...

"Meghan's loose coat at Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday led to speculation that an announcement was imminent and now that we have it, the Royal Baby name game starts."

It's the talk of the tabloids - Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child.

Betfair punters have been quick to move, backing Diana in to favouritism already this morning, even before the news was confirmed.

Katie Baylis, Betfair Spokesperson, said: "Meghan's loose coat at Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday led to speculation that an announcement was imminent and now that we have it, the Royal Baby name game starts.

"At this stage Diana is the 8/1 favourite followed by Arthur and Alice, which was favourite at different stages for Kate and William's babies, at 12/1.

"However, with months until the baby is born, those odds will shorten, change and other names will come to the forefront, so watch this space."
