‘King To Be’ Needs A Name
The royal baby has arrived, and it’s a boy. Prince William and Duchess Kate’s first baby, a future monarch, was born today at 4:24 pm local time in London’s private wing of St. Mary’s Hospital.
The baby weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces, and mother and baby are reported to be doing well. William was present for the birth and In a statement, Prince William said: ‘We could not be happier.’
Then came a 62-gun salute, the water in the fountains turning blue, fireworks and street parties commencing. This is a big deal with a baby boy being born that would be a king.
But he needs a name. Every king has to have a name.
The name was not immediately announced. There’s a chance it could be announced as early as Tuesday, but it’s also possible it may not be known for some days.
As strange as it may sound, bookies are making it possible to place bets on what his name will be. I guess in our world you can bet on almost everything. I’ve got my hands full enough on the 401K betting table right now.
