Future King

HRH the Duchess of York (big mistake - Cambridge as we all know. I am an idiot) - has given birth to a baby boy.

The baby was delivered at 16:24 BST, weighing 8lb 6oz, it was announced in a press release.

15 to 1. Worth a flutter.

Fantastic news!!! Congratulations to the proud parents and welcome to our future King!!!!!

A boy - as RAF Aircrew? He hasn't been flying enough!!!

Don't get at Courtney - everyone knows that York has primacy in all things so it was a natural slip to make!

Rumour has it that, when GeorgeVI died, the Yorkshire Post headline was "Ex-Duke of York Dies". All to do with priorities.

As an aside, when was the last time we had an heir to the heir to the heir to the throne; or is this a first?

Tom,

You did indeed predict that. The only one to get it right. I was hoping for a girl or a really cute puppy. But, hey, it's a boy!

Coff et al,

Bugger. In my rush to to win at 15 to 1 I blew it. And it will be here on the record forever. What can I say? Except I had 1,000 on me.

But, hey, it's a boy. Our future King.

Oh it was just a bit on a hunch Courtney. Thank God it wasn't a puppy, that would have made for a barking King.

The last time was the birth of Edward VIII during the reign of Queen Victoria.
