Between the tabloid covers, TV segments, and general influx of media coverage (including on our own site!), you’ve probably read a lot about the Royal Baby, as Kate Middleton’s July 13 due date looms. Here are 10 fun facts you may have missed.
- The royal birth notice will be posted just inside on the gates of Buckingham palace. But, for the first time, the birth announcement will also be released via social media.
- Bookies have placed odds on the royal baby name: they like Alexandra.
- Bookies are also offering odds of 4-1 that the baby inherits the recessive red hair gene, à la Harry.
- The baby will be heir to the throne (third in line after Prince Charles and Prince William), regardless of whether it is a girl or a boy. In April of this year, the UK changed its rights of succession, ending centuries of male primogeniture.
