The jury's still out on if the couple will introduce their child to the public via their very popular Instagram account, or by the more traditional route of a photocall in front of the world's media.

The name of Baby Sussex is expected to be announced at the same time of his first public appearance, with speculation rife about what the couple will call the eighth in line to the throne.

According to Ladbrokes, traditional baby names are by far the most popular choice, with moniker's such as Albert, Arthur and Alexander taking the three top spots.
