Guess what Kate Middleton's baby will be called?

Britain's Duchess Catherine has "always loved" the name Diana. The Duchess and her husband Prince William - whose late mother Princess Diana was killed in a Paris car crash in 1997 - are planning to wait until their baby is born before giving it a moniker, but her old school friend Jessica Hay says there are particular names Catherine favours.

She said: "Catherine's been saying, as per her mother's suggestion, that she wants to meet the baby first and then decide. If it's a girl, Victoria is a favourite and, funnily enough, Diana is a name that Catherine has always loved."

It has been speculated that Catherine - who is also known by her maiden name of Kate Middleton - is expecting twins as she has been suffering from severe morning sickness, and Jessica says the couple would be thrilled if that were the case.

She told Australia's New Idea magazine: "Catherine would love twins and a lot of people in their circle in London say it could indeed be the case that she is expecting twins. If it were a boy and a girl, it would be a dream come true for them both."

And according to Jessica, Catherine and William have vowed to be hands-on parents with few household staff attending to their offspring.

She said: "There will be a house with a lot of laughter rather than staffed with nannies, governesses and butlers and so on."
