Before Harry and Meghan's first child Archie was born the speculation around his name was at fever pitch with many punting for Arthur, Alexander and Albert.

"The support for baby Philippa is showing no signs of slowing down, and we've been forced to trim the odds again that it's the name for Harry and Meghan's daughter," said Jessica O'Reilly of Ladbrokes.
