I don't know why but 'Queen Mother' has a better ring to it then 'King Mother' for some reason. Alexandra after Edward VII death was called Queen Mother however Mary did not want to be known as Quern Mother when George V died because she thought it implied Advancing Years instead she was simply called Queen Mary. She still held the title but she never went by it.

However Alexandra is usually still called Queen Alexandra today.

Princess Diana said in a interview once that she wanted to be called King Mother when William became king.

Whatever Diana may or may not have said it was just as irrelevent then as it is now. There is no such title as King Mother. If the monarchs mother was Queen Consort she becomes Queen Mother during her childs reign, even if she does not use the designation.
Had she lived Diana may well have become the Kings mother, but she would never have been Queen Mother and certainly not King Mother.

With this baby being born in the midst of all of the jubilee celebrations along with Philip being in the hospital. The legacy and mortality of Williams grandparents are everywhere. I truly expect a girl to be named Elizabeth and a boy to be Philip. With all of the various and appropriate family names to follow.

There has been a King Mother before, in a manner.

During the reign of Henry VII his mother, Margaret Beaufort, was styled My Lady The King's Mother. Had she lived Diana may have been granted some title or style to denote her status as William's mother during his reign.

Regardless, though, if Catherine one day becomes Queen Consort and then her child one day reigns, she will be the Queen Mother.

[QUOTE="DukeofMontpelier;1563619"]Princess of Cambridge=Catherine Elizabeth Alexandra Francis
Prince of Cambridge=Arthur Phillip Charles Francis

I think a reminder of these days when this child is Monarch would be nice, so I honor it's great grandparents in both names and in a way that is not to explosive I honor Diana with Francis but with a nod to Michael as well.

I still say I like these names.

I too think Francis would very likely appear in a string of boys' names for the reason it honors both Diana and Michael Middleton, but not the first name.

I love Alexander as the first name for a boy.

I like the name Alexander too, and Alexander and Francis go well together IMO. How about Alexander Francis Philip Michael? For a girl, I'm hoping for a Princess Victoria. I still think George is a likely choice for a boy, but you never know. I like Alexander's female variant, Alexandra. Alexandra Elizabeth Catherine Mary sounds nice. I think that Sophia Charlotte Beatrice Elizabeth is also a nice combination for a Princess of Cambridge.

Names that I would like to see in Baby Cambridge's "name combination" are:

Girl

Victoria (as a first name)
Sophia
Amelia
Helena
Catherine
Elizabeth (as a first name)
Alexandra
Mary
Alice
Rose
Georgiana
Charlotte
Caroline
Diana
Alberta (female version of Albert)
Adelaide

Boy

George (as a first name)
Philip
Arthur (as a first name)
Michael
Charles
Albert
Alexander

I like Francis/Frances for the same reasons you do.

Alexander would be a good nod to the Scottish. If they don't chose to separate, then he would one day rule as Alexander IV, the first British monarch to use the Scottish numbering since Mary II.

What I like about Francis/Frances is the nod to the American ancestors from the Spencer side.

These are my favorite royal names for a boy or girl. I don't think that they would name a girl Diana, but I'm sure that they would use that as one of the second names. I am really hoping for a little girl - but I am sure it will be what it will be!!

Girl:

Alexandra Diana Elizabeth
Alexandra Diana Catherine Elizabeth
Elizabeth Catherine Diana

Boy:

Arthur William Michael James
Arthur Charles Michael William
William Charles Michael Philip

Good Choices. I hope peoples ( Diana Super fans) are not Disappointed if William and Catherine do not name it Diana if it is a Girl. think it Going to be Elizabeth of Victoria for a Girl.

And the monks with the dalia lama will survive too if this child is not named Diana or any name associated with her. TBH, at this stage of the game, I'm leaning towards seeing a totally unique name. One this future monarch can hold on his own.

And .. me says its a boy. Pliffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffts

Wait, will they not survive if the child is named Diana or something associated with her?

Alberta is a nice touch to their Canadian tour two years ago, when they were at the Stampede/

I second this names choice. Alexander was my other choice but apparently it is the name of Kates bf Trini Foyle's little boy. So i don't think they will choose it as a first name.

I have not shifted from my preferred name a couple of months ago - Charlotte Rose.
Additional names - Mary/Alice/Elizabeth/Alexandra

If I was going to have a girl, I would name her Charlotte Rose because I think it is a beautiful name.

Boy wise has always been more difficult. A combo of George/Arthur/Charles/Philip/William
is the most I can put forward
