Bookies shut shop as Victoria emerges top candidate for royal baby name

London, July 07 (ANI): As Duchess of Cambridge's due date approaches, speculation is rife over what name would royal baby get - with Victoria being a hot favourite.

The bookmaker Ladbrokes suspended bets after many bet were placed on the traditional English name in just 24 hours, the Daily Star reported.

The name Victoria is now the joint favourite for a girl's name at 4/1 alongside Alexandra, closely followed by the name Charlotte at 6/1.

The chances for Kate to give birth to a girl are at 2/5, while a boy is still currently at odds of 7/4. (ANI)
