Grace as Grace Van Cutsem, William's goddaughter who was a flower girl on their wedding

Yes, I thought of Grace Van Custem after I typed it! I can just imagine a little Princess Grace. Having a tough time thinking of boys names though. Alexander?

Geoffrey Charles Phillip Michael.
I'm pretty sure we have a children's show calls Geoffrey Giraffe! I agree the name is regal yet in a way modern. I like the spelling too.

Geoffrey is also the mascot of the toy firm Toys R Us here in the states.

I think Grace would be a nice tribute to the flower girl

I like Alexander and Alexandra

But my bet is Victoria Elizabeth Diana Mary

I like the choice of Grace, it's feminine and pretty. I like Helena too, it's nice and traditional. Perhaps a middle name?

My first choice for a boy is still Arthur. I love it.

I think that Elizabeth Alexandra Grace Anne would be more possible. They are going to roll each name with "Princess" & "Queen" to see how they work. "Princess Grace" is still, for the RF, going to bring recollection of Grace of Monaco and Queen Grace just does not jell.

Matilda or Eleanor would be lovely first names for a girl.
Matilda Caroline Elizabeth Anne or Eleanor Caroline Frances Elizabeth perhaps.

I am coming to appreciate Matilda too, Zelia. I like its sound, and I like it because the Aussie's do, and I like it because of the interesting Medieval princesses with that name in Scotland, England, and France. Eleanor I like too. Gosh, five or so months to go, we will discuss all the names. There are a couple of Biblical names I like, which are unusual but have had popularity. One is Chloe, which I read is #10 in girl baby names, and Rhoda, which means Rose among the many Greek names used in the Bible. I had a distant cousin Rhoda whose parents came from Kent, England, to the English community in Sutherlin Oregon, north of Roseburg. I met her daughter Lilian when she was old.

Eleanor and Matilda are fantastic.

I can't agree with the others. If I may tease a bit :

Queen Chloe - doesn't work. Sounds like some sort of brand name.
Princess Rhoda - sounds like something out of Star Wars
Queen Rhoda - the 70 year old head of a bridge club in Palm Beach, Florida

Princess/Queen Lilian. I think it would be the "Estelle" of Britain; something nobody would ever, ever had guessed.

I'd suggest Prince Michael, after Kate's father, but I think Michael Jackson beat him to it.

Although, I suppose if they name the child Mary, and she one day becomes Queen Mary, there are those who will wonder why she was named after a ship.....

I also like Mathilda (Or Matilda...I kinda like it with the 'h'), and Eleanor.

Yes, Queen Chloe does sound sort of silly. Sorry about that. Apparently it's very popular. According to a baby names site. And I often appreciate names associated with interesting people. Did you know that Chloe in the Biblical book Corinthians asked the apostle Paul to resolve a dispute at the house-church she ran? Probably an interesting person. But Queen Chloe probably isn't OK. Back to Eleanor, Matilda, and Charlotte.
