Royal baby to be named 'Chunky'

17-07-13

THE next royal baby is to be named Chunky, regardless of its gender, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have confirmed.

The couple chose the name from a list of favourites including ‘Basher’, ‘Baldy’ and ‘The Baby’.

Prince William said: “It’s a good name because when you think about it all babies are chunky. They have little fat arms and legs.

“Also Chunky works whether it’s a boy or a girl or ‘in between’ which can happen, especially in the upper classes where the gene pool is not extensive.

“At first I wanted to call it King Rollo because that was such a good cartoon in the 80s but Kate was like, what if it’s a girl?

“Then it would end up being Queen King Rollo. I thought that was quite funny but no one else was into it.”

Royal fan Emma Bradford said: “If that’s the name the royal couple have chosen then I think it’s amazing, because that is the simple fashion in which my brain works.”
