We may be in the midst of a gloomy world pandemic but thankfully there's royal baby news to cheer us all up!

Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child together on 9 February and the web is abuzz with possible baby name choices.

We've got a big hint at the possibilities from betting site Betfair, who have revealed that two names are frontrunners for the royal cherub – and they are super cute and traditional.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: "Royal fans are excited to kick off 2021 with another baby due next month - and expect Eugenie and Jack to stick with traditional names, with Alice and Arthur, both at 8/1 currently leading the way in the betting."

Oh how sweet, a little Alice or Arthur! We definitely approve.

"They are followed by the likes of Godfrey, Grace and Henry at 10/1, while it is interesting to see Charles at 22/1 and Edward at 25/1 should they decide to name it after the baby's grandfather or great-uncle." Other names in the running are Augusta, Thomas and Alexandra at 14/1 and Victoria and Victor at 16/1.

The moniker Diana, after the late Princess, has odds of 20/1 while Camilla, after the Duchess, is at 100/1. Should the couple go for the name Boris, people could make a small fortune with odds of 200/1.
