When the royals announced Meghan’s pregnancy in Australia, they immediately received a list of recommendations from their fans. Although we probably won't find out the final name until, well, the baby is born...Prince Charles casually dropped a few that might've made the shortlist.

According to Daily Mail, while addressing guests at a reception at the Australia House in London last Thursday, the future King of England said, “Incidentally, ladies and gentlemen, my son Harry tells me that during their recent tour of Australia, he and his wife were offered countless thoughtful suggestions for the naming of their forthcoming baby. Just between us, I suspect that Kylie and Shane may possibly make the shortlist.”

Prince Charles was probably not referring to Kylie Jenner; the name was likely a subtle reference to the Australian singer, Kylie Minogue.

According to the US betting site Betfair, Diana, Arthur and Alice are the top three competitors in the royal baby game. And it would come as no surprise if they decided to pay tribute to the late Princess Diana, as Prince William included his late mother’s name into his daughter Charlotte’s full name: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

On the other hand, British bookkeeps Ladbrokes have revealed Victoria to be the top choice amongst people, closely followed by Albert for a baby prince and Diana for a baby princess.

Whichever name makes the cut, we're counting down the downs until the baby's arrival in spring of next year.
