Why Royal Baby Name Has Not Been Announced Yet

The Duchess of Cambridge is in labour with her third child More

Their first two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were named just two days after their birth, which may suggest that the Duke and Duchess are having a hard time making the decision.

The royal family's website has reserved a page for a Prince Albert as the United Kingdom and the rest of the world waits for William and Kate to announce their son's name.

He even hinted about the baby's "strong" name, without giving any further clues.

The royal family, of course, is very traditional, and could be waiting for the future King of England to pop in for a visit before they share the new baby's name with the world.

Albert has been a popular name in the British royal family ever since the marriage of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840, it's appeared in almost every generation of the family in some way.

If visitors attempt to view pages bearing other rumoured names - including Arthur and Alexander - the website simply presents the message "Page Not Found".

Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that the royal baby's name is definitely Prince Albert.

The "Access denied" message at royal.uk/prince-albert, then, may not be a clue about the royal baby's name.

Most notably, Albert was the beloved husband of Queen Victoria - thus it's popped up among several of the full names of her distinguished descendants.

You see?? It seems right that a baby Bertie joins the royals at Kensington Palace. If you look at the URLs of different royals on the site, it's somewhat inconsistent throughout.

We can't say we're surprised that Albert is likely the little one's name. It's one of the top picks on British betting websites.
