The yet-to-be-named Prince becomes the fifth royal in line for the throne behind his grandfather Prince Charles, father Prince William, brother Prince George and sister Princess Charlotte.
Tipsters are placing their bets on what the new Prince will be called with Albert, James, Arthur, Fredrick and Philip leading the pack.
