However insiders say this will probably change in a few months.

Ken Wharfe acted as a personal protection officer to William and his younger brother Harry when they were children and says ultimately Catherine will need another pair of hands.

While the sex of the unborn baby is not yet known, Britain's Hello! magazine has been asking readers to vote for their favorite name.

Bookmakers William Hill say that over 70 per cent of bets have been made for a girl.
