Will Royal Baby No. 2 be a girl? And if so, will she be named Alice?
According to a recent influx of bets, Kate Middleton and Prince William will call their new bundle of joy Alice when the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge gives birth in the coming weeks.

A slew of gamblers in Tonbridge, England have reportedly placed wagers up to $500 on the adorably traditional name. Though the group admitted they do not have any inside information regarding the gender of Kate’s second child, three-quarters of recent bets placed on the royal baby predict the tot will be a girl.
“The support for Alice is relentless, and we’ve been left with no option but to take the scissors to the odds,” Jessica Bridge, a spokeswoman for British gaming company Ladbrokes, said in a new interview.

In addition to Alice, fans of the monarchy are also reportedly predicting Kate, 33, and William, 32, will name their child Elizabeth, Charlotte or Victoria (if it’s a girl) and Arthur or James (if it’s a boy).
Only time will tell whether Prince George will have a little brother or sister — and we can’t wait to find out!
