The Cambridges may be playing the classic Royal baby name guessing game , but that hasn’t stopped the speculation (or bets).
Today could be the day we find out. With George’s name we waited two days, and with Charlotte it was two and-a-half.
Current name favourites for the fifth in line to the throne at the bookies are Arthur, followed by James, Philip and Albert.
Now, the Royals aren’t renowned for being too creative when naming their offspring, and all of these are sound, solid names which also tow the line of tradition nicely.
However, there is a small problem with one the names – namely, Albert.
Prince Albert is a fine name, steeped in history – and it would also be a sweet nod to the Queen’s father.
It also has another, slightly less regal meaning.
According to Wikipedia, the PA (as it’s called) "is a ring-style piercing that extends along the underside of the glans from the urethral opening to where the glans meets the shaft of the penis."
Look it up yourself if you need more detail.
While it’s not the sort of body modification you probably want associated with your child, the Royal family may have one of its own to "thank" for it.
It’s never been substantiated, but legend has it that Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert had his penis pierced so he could easily move it from left to right in his pants.
This, is said, was avoid there being a detectable bulge in the tight-fitting trousers of the day.
William and Kate, if you’re reading this, please think twice about Albert.
