Does anyone remember how long they took to announce Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s name?

CuckingFunt1987 Tue 24-Apr-18 06:48:40

3 days with George and Charlotte

Ivegotfamilyandidrinkcupsoftea Tue 24-Apr-18 06:51:02

I thought 2 days after the birth

You don’t have to wait. You can just get on with your life normally.

I think a few people who’ve had boys in the last 24 hrs (and who will in the next) might be inclined to wait for the Cambridges’ announcement before deciding on their own child’s name. I certainly would, simply to avoid their choice.

I know someone who gave birth yesterday who is waiting so they don’t pick the same name. Think they had Arthur on their list.

It'll be James

Carry on with your life now

My money's on Alfred.

BettyPitts Tue 24-Apr-18 07:27:32

John Arthur Philip.

There, wait no longer.

Flumpybear I highly doubt it's James because Kate's brother is also called James and they avoid names in the immediate family which is a shame cause I wanted him to be called James Arthur Cambridge

Highpeak Tue 24-Apr-18 11:51:37

And her BIL, that's way too many James's!

Highpeak Tue 24-Apr-18 11:57:57

Damn autocorrect misplaced apostrophe.

Lazinganddazing Tue 24-Apr-18 12:00:51

My moneys on Alexander or arther.
But yes around 2/3 days.

I'm guessing the posters who are telling OP to get on with life don't do anything while the kettle boils. [:D]

Its unlikely to be James (the name of Kate's brother) or John, it is considered to be unlucky amongst the royals. Also can't imagine they would go for Philip, as Kate's sister's name is Philippa.

My bets are on Edward, Nicholas, Arthur or Andrew. With Philip/Henry/James/Michael as middle names.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 24-Apr-18 12:04:52

Arthur Henry Philip

halfwitpicker Tue 24-Apr-18 12:05:08

Edward I think.

halfwitpicker Tue 24-Apr-18 12:05:31

Eddy for short. I reckon he'll be like uncle Harry. Bit of a renegade.

GladAllOver Tue 24-Apr-18 12:05:47

It's quite urgent for people who have bets on the name.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 24-Apr-18 12:13:23

Or Micheal Philip James
Francis John Philip
Vincent Charles Philip.

GreatDuckCookery Tue 24-Apr-18 12:23:01

I thought Arthur or Albert and even Jasper.

But I'm going for Frederick David James.

Wellfuckmeinbothears Tue 24-Apr-18 12:26:48

I think Philip for a first name then Henry.

Wellfuckmeinbothears Tue 24-Apr-18 12:27:20

I think Prince Albert is unlikely, given the genital piercing association!

GottaGetThisDone Tue 24-Apr-18 22:33:59

I don't think it will be Edward, James, Andrew, Phillip or Micheal as they are all relatives - i think they will give him his 'own' name (as in not already on the family)

Doubt it will be Albert either as pp said the connotations are a no go lol, nor is it likely to be Alexander as George has that in his names. Nor is it likely to be Henry/Harry.

They may give hm Micheal Phillip or Charles as one of his middle names.

I kinda hope they have Frederick know as Freddie
