Kate Middleton, 36, and Prince William, 35, look likely to name the new royal baby Arthur, according to bookies – who think an insider has revealed all with a hefty bet.

The odds on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge naming their third child Arthur have been lashed to 8-1 (from 12-1) following a surge of bets over the last 48 hours, according to Coral.

This also seemed to suggest the baby will be a little boy – a choice so popular Paddy Power has stopped taking bets on the royal baby being male following a four-figure bet this morning.

These odds mean if a bet of £5,000 was placed, if a little boy is born the bookies will pay out £8,333.33.

What is more, Paddy Power is now in agreement with Coral on the most likely choice for a little boys name.

Irish bookie now make Arthur the favourite to be the moniker of choice at 5/1. Before the cash was placed this morning, Alice was the favourite at 6/1.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “We’ve seen a really chunky bet on Will and Kate’s third baby being a boy this morning, so we’ve been forced to stop accepting bets as we think someone must be in the know.”

“Excitement is really building with Kate expected to give birth any day now.

“For weeks our betting has suggested that our customers are convinced she’ll have a girl but now we’re seeing a lot of money for Arthur, a name steeped in Royal history,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

Alice and Mary remain the 5-1 favourites at the head of Coral’s market, while the second boys name in the list is Albert at 12-1.

Kate Middleton is due to give birth to her third child today, according to a psychic prediction. 

The psychic also revealed the Duchess of Cambridge’s baby’s gender, weight and possible name.

While Kate’s due date was recently revealed by a royal expert as April 23, the psychic prediction would see her go into labour exactly a week early.

“I think she will give birth today,” said Katie Helliwell, a psychic medium and public speaker.

What gender will the baby be? “She will have a beautiful baby boy weighing 8lb 1oz,” the psychic added.
