Did Prince William just reveal the name of the Royal baby?

There was also a change to the intended name of Queen Elizabeth II's sister, Princess Margaret, in 1930.

The new dad joined Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle at the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday.

That's how the Duke of Cambridge responded to Alexander Downer's light-hearted question about whether the Royal baby might share his first name.

Whatever name they choose for the prince, it's likely to rise in the popularity rankings.

Prince William also appeared to drop a huge hint that the couple may have gone for another name.

Born weighing 8lb 7oz at 11.01am on St George's Day, William and Kate's new baby is fifth-in-line to the throne.

Royals traditionally keep the public guessing before revealing their choice of name. She and Matthews got hitched previous year, on May 20, at St. Mark's Church in Englefield, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte playing pageboy and bridesmaid.

Of the people polled, the majority of Americans think the new royal baby's name will be "James", which got 26% of the vote, or another name. "Carole's lovely, and she just doesn't let anything faze her", an insider told PEOPLE.

And when another member of the crowd suggested the name Alexander, he joked: "Funny you should say that". Likewise with Princess Charlotte, who was born in May 2015. Both times she made public appearances until her eighth month of pregnancy. The royal wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle is taking place on May 19.

Asked how mother and baby is, William said: "They're very well, thanks".

Now of course Kate has a personal glam squad who are there to tend to her every beck-and-call, but being able to leave hospital just seven hours after giving birth must make her superhuman.
