What will Princess Eugenie call her baby? The odds on the possible name for the baby boy have been revealed...
Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed a baby boy into the world yesterday, with the couple confirming the happy news on Instagram.
She shared an adorable photo of her son alongside some blue heart emojis, and the Royal Family released a statement saying that Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Andrew, the Duchess of York and Jack’s parents, Nicola and George, were all delighted by the news.
The couple haven't yet revealed the newborn's name, but the bookies have unveiled a list of possible front-runners.
The current favourite is Philip, with Betfair offering odds of 4/1.
Arthur and Godrey are second favourites at 5/1, while Henry and Thomas follow at 11/2 and 8/1 respectively.
Other names on the list include Albert, Jack, Edmund and Boris.
Philip: 4/1 (was 25/1)
Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: "Royal fans are over the moon to welcome a new bouncing baby boy to brighten up the start of 2021 - with Princess Eugenie and Jack expected to keep it traditional, Arthur is the 4/1 early favourite followed closely by Godfrey at 5/1.
"There are also a number of existing male royals who he could be named after, including his grandfather Edward at 14/1 and great-grandfather Philip at 25/1 - and it would be a surprise if he was called Boris, as that name is way out with odds of 200/1."
Princess and Jack got married in October 2018 at Windsor Castle, and announced that they were expecting a baby in September 2020.
