Yep Cider, happy days for unders Grin helped by several following tweets from Clarence House that dampened the impact of that particular tweet

Alfred a good punt for the name imo, as too is Arthur

How is the baby going to come out? Yes, fascinating & eagerly awaited. In a pram, a baby car seat, parachuted down, already doing handsprings perhaps.

Who asks the 1st question? Burley, 'I do. Sky News.' What a grotesque harridan she is.

im thinking it would be better for them to announce the name sooner rather than later, for things to quieten down a bit.
otherwise the press are just gonna hound them non-stop until they do.
announce it and there will be a little more breathing space
