She added: “The early betting suggests they may opt for Arthur or Victoria, but we can’t rule out a slightly more left-field royal name.”

The bookies also have Grace (6/1), James (6/1), Arabella (7/1), Alice (7/1), and Edward (7/1) follow next behind, along with Florence, Albert and Frederick all at 8/1.

Elizabeth is chalked up as a 10/1 shot with the firm.

However, Coral makes Oliver the favourite to be the name at odds of 5-1.

Arthur, a name in Jack’s family, is 6-1 second favourite, while Lily (8-1) and Mary (10-1) are among the top picks for girls names in the betting at the company.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Princess Eugenie and Jack are expecting, two years after they tied the knot, and another Royal baby is on the way.

“We make Oliver the favourite to be the name the couple go for, just favouring it to be a boy.

“Lily and Mary are our tops picks for it they have a baby girl.”
