Ha ha. As in Arsene Wenger, coach of Arsenal FC soccer team. Anyway, Prince William supports Aston Villa.

WILL BABY BE A VOGUE COVER MODEL BEFORE 18?

WILL BABY BECOME PRO SOCCER STAR?

William Hill: 1,000-1

AND ONE FINAL THOUGHT:

"Everybody has got a chance to experience it in their own way, right down to the fact of betting on the names — is it going to be Frances or James or Baby Gaga?" said royal historian Robert Lacey.
