Royal baby name: Public rooting for Baby McBabyface

Royal Baby Crying

The birth of the seventh in line to the throne, a week late and on an otherwise news-free bank holiday Monday, was a godsend for tabloid editors and spoof news sites bored to the back teeth with Brexit.

The Royal Palace announced that the Duchess of Sussex had a baby boy in the early hours of Monday morning and speculation is mounting as to what the little fella will be called. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are considered by many to be just like an average couple that have won the lottery a few times over, so could we see them eschew royal baby naming traditions for something more Wetherspoons. 

The forward-thinking royals may go with a standard James, Edward or Arthur but may decide to surprise everyone with Chris, Gary or Mozza.

Harry, like his father, is a big fan of Game of Thrones, leading some to speculate that we could soon have a Prince Grey Worm or a little Prince Tyrion, although most bookies have Joffrey at 1000:1.


World leaders have sent their congratulations to Harry and Meghan with Donald Trump tweeting:

“Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Narnia. Call him Donald. It’s the best name. A lot of people say so.” 

While speculation over the royal baby’s name is likely to fuel a couple more news cycles, one name is already a clear favourite with the public. 

A poll conducted by The Post Truth Post records that 82.3% of respondents are rooting for - His Royal Highness Prince Baby McBabyface the first.
