- With the news Meghan and Harry have had a baby boy, odds on the two very traditional names slashed after flurry of bets today

Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis said: “It’s the news the world has been waiting for for days and now that the Royal Couple have announced they have had a little baby boy, attention now turns to what the little Prince’s name will be. James and Alexander are the joint favourites at 7/2, both slashed from 12/1 after a flurry of bets on both names in the last few hours. They overtake previous favourite for a boy, Arthur which is at 6/1, with two equally traditional names Edward and Oliver at 12/1.”
