I agree, she is more a cover story in People magazine than a subject for the history books. If she does get into the history books it should be as a footnote, rather like George IVs wife.

It has been my observation that young people these days - and a lot of older people - have very little knowledge of, or interest in, things that don't directly affect them or what they didn't have to learn in school. I suppose I'm talking more about general knowledge than history. Many people have very little general knowledge. General knowledge doesn't seem to be praised as a good thing these days, whereas I'm sure it was when I was younger.

And I doubt much about Diana will stand the test of time and be taught in history classes. Maybe in media studies classes.

More like abnormal psychology classes at the graduate level.

I've a brilliant idea! Why not name the child after the ring!

HRH Princess Sapphire of Cambridge!

The worshippers of the People's Princess would not understand the reference. I'm afraid this child must be a girl and named Sapphire.

Sapphire Elizabeth Victoria Diamond.

This baby will start a new order of chivalry: the Order of the Fellowship of the Ring.

But we have to think about girl names: Galadriel, maybe?

Princess Galadriel? You've just killed 12 gray men with that suggestion.

The argument that George is too new doesn't make sense. It has been sixty one years since George vi. It will be over a 100 years by the time baby Cambridge reigns. If you eliminate Charles, Edward, Henry, William and James as names of kings but already used in the immediate family- George is best fit if we are using a previous king but not a immediate family name.

Who are the people that the influenced William and Kate - their grandparents, parents, etc? Elizabeth and Phillip are locks for baby Cambridge. I don't think the use Diana as a name maybe Frances. A girl baby will get much more press than a boy as it grows. She is going to be compared to her mum, grand mum, aunt pippa

Ruby is a great second name, as it would be the Princess' birthstone.

But let's not forget the semi-precious stones

Princess Peridot Elizabeth

Princess Topaz Victoria

Princess Amythest Anne

Imagine that, Buck House can be demolished, and Queen Galadriel will reign from a new palace called Two Towers.

Unfortunately, there are many out there who think this is a mighty fine suggestion, B. E.

There's a problem: I think the dwarves will have some difficulty to be the Queen's Guard. That hats are taller than the poor guys.

Hopefully all those kind well-meaning friends texting name suggestions to Kate are aware of these issues. These are college friends, are they not?

I am developing a fondness for Topaz Victoria; and here are my reasons

1) Hanoverian reference - Check
2) Famous queen reference - Check
3) Beckham/spice girl reference for the masses - Check
4) Topaz. When she's Queen her regnal name can be something more appropriate - Diamond, perhaps. Besides, the masses will think it's a made up name like Hayley or Jayden, and will be tremendously impressed.

Thank goodness the BRF don't just alternate names the way the Danish do, otherwise these 75 pages would not have been necessary.

Yeah. When the time comes, and Prince Christian's wife get pregnant, things here will be very boring.
