Jack and Eugenie were pictured leaving the hospital with their baby son

Eugenie and Jack, who were pictured leaving the Portland Hospital with their newborn last Friday, are still to announce their son's name.

On Pancake Day, otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday, Sarah shared a fun boomerang-style video on Instagram of her successfully flipping a pancake, surrounded by some of her children's books, and at HELLO! HQ we couldn't help but wonder if one of them is a possible hint about her baby grandson's name.

One of the bookies' favourites for the royal tot is Arthur and in the corner of Sarah's video, her book Arthur Fantastic can be seen. 

While it might be purely coincidental, it's the only boy's name that can be seen among the titles of her children's novels.
