According to, the royal baby will hold the official title of His or Her Royal Highness Prince of Princess of Cambridge.  Say that five times fast.  The title isn't a surprise, considering the baby's parents are known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  The city's mayor called it a "great honour."

The royal baby watch has been underway for months and speculation is running high on what name the royal couple have chosen for their baby.  If it's a girl, possible names include Charlotte, Alexandra, Victoria and Elizabeth.  If they have a boy, he could be named Edward, Charles, James or George.  Regardless of the baby's name and gender, the baby will be third in line to the throne.

Princess Diana and Prince Charles waited about a week to reveal William's name.  Will William and Kate do the same?  We'll just have to play the waiting game with the rest of the world.
