    Started by said 25/04/2018

    The announcement of Kate and Williams new baby's name is due in a few hours. The betting has been going on for some days, probably the reason for the delay. What is your guess? See who gets it right!

    I'm surprised there is no on-going thread about this child's terrible situation . Maybe posters are maintaining a dignified silence although it's being played out so publically.
