For the past 450 years the names of Denmark's kings have alternated between Frederik and Christian and it is unlikely the second-in-line's parents will choose to break with tradition. Speculation will be conclusively put to rest on January 21, though, when the tot is christened in Christiansborg Palace church.

The citizens of Princess Mary's homeland are also taking a keen interest in her baby son. Indeed betting agencies in Australia have been offering odds on the new arrival growing up to marry tennis star Lleyton Hewitt and actress Bec Cartwright's newborn daughter.
