Royal Baby Latest: Kate And William's First Born Will Be The First Ever Prince Or Princess of Cambridge

Here at Grazia HQ, we are literally on tender-hooks waiting for the arrival of TRB (The Royal Baby, obvs). And the latest update to reach our ears is that the tot will be given a rather fabulous title. Yes, when Kate Middleton pops, which could be any day now (we hope - this waiting game is torture!) her first born will be named His or Her Royal Highness the Prince or Princess of Cambridge. Try saying that after a few glasses of champers.

According to royal sources, the child will inherit the Dukedom bested on William in 2011 by the Queen as a wedding gift, which understandably the people of Cambridge are pretty chuffed about. 'It is a great honour and I'm sure the people of Cambridge will appreciate it greatly,' the Mayor of Cambridge, Councillor Paul Saunders, said. 'I think it's lovely to continue the close link with the Royal family. I think anything which helps to keep Cambridge in the public eye is a good thing as we rely on tourism.'

As for former Cambridge mayor Cllr Sheila Stewart, who met Kate on the royal visit to the city last year, she believes having a prince or princess is a first for the historic city. 'When we did a lot of research after it was first announced that the couple were to get the title, nothing like that was found', she said. 'There were some dukes of Cambridge but not a prince or princess. It can only be good news for Cambridge. Everyone is so excited about it. The whole country is waiting for the birth.'

You're telling us, Sheila!
