Royal Pregnancy

It has been announced today that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.

Members of the royal family and Her Royal Highness's family, the Middletons, are said to be delighted.

A spokesman said HRH has been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in central London with very acute morning sickness and is expected to stay for several days.

The royal infant will be born third in line and in direct succession to the throne.

He or she will one day be head of the armed forces, supreme governor of the Church of England and head of the Commonwealth, and subsequently head of state of 16 countries.

The Prime Minister, the Rt Hon David Cameron MP, wrote on Twitter that he was "delighted by the news", adding: "They will make wonderful parents."

Lord Belmont is delighted to hear such wonderful news and naturally wishes Their Royal Highnesses most cordial congratulations on a truly joyful occasion.

what Christian name to you favour for (a ) a boy or ( b ) a girl ?
My own choice would be (a ) George and (b) Victoria. Imagine another Queen Victoria - and it could happen with the change in the law !

Male Christian names might include Henry, Charles, George, William, Edward, James.

Female names: Elizabeth, Mary, Diana, Frances; or, as you say, Victoria.

Traditional names; Prince William will probably wish one of his mother's names, too.

to the best of my knowledge, The Duke of Windsor's Christian names reflected tradition and reflected names associated with every corner of the Realm (e.g. Patrick).
