Mary is favourite name for William and Kate's baby

Speaking to Raymond Stoner, boss of Anston Properties, he said: "Our third child is due in April, I'm getting as much sleep as I can". And if she is indeed pregnant with twins, she'll have more of a reason to stay home and not have to fulfill her royal duties and obligations.

The baby is due in April, just weeks before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

The moniker is also one of The Queen's middle names and throughout history, there have been two Queen Marys to take to the British throne. However, Kate's plans for her red carpet fashion have yet to be's important to note that Kate wore a black dress to last year's BAFTAs [as seen below], which did not contain a dress code.

Palace insiderAre Kate and William having twins?

The Royal couple have been very private about the gender of their third child, despite the continuous inquiries being made by the public.

These two names are considered to be royal, which raises the probability of their third child having a royal name as well.

The exciting update comes after a serious spike in the north-west of England with punters putting their money behind Mary. Next in line are Alice (Prince Philip's mother's name), Arthur, Henry, Victoria, and Elizabeth, according to bookmaker Paddy Power.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were both born at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London.

In January 2013 the same rumour surfaced again - while she was carrying Princess Charlotte.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who plans to attend the 2018 BAFTAs on 18th February with her husband Prince William, could face repercussions if she joins the sea of black on the red carpet-and criticism if she's one of the few in colour.

The baby's birth will be announced on an easel outside Buckingham Palace.


Now, however, the announcement is also emailed to media outlets and shared on social media for the world to see.

The royal joked his "mental health" would be tested if his wife gave birth to twins unexpectedly - and either way, he expects to be "permanently tired" following the new arrival.
