>>> trending on e, big bets from all over the world on the upcoming royal birth with less than a month before the dutchess of cambridge's due date , it's intensifying and here to fill us in is ben. my first question to you is what are you wearing?
>> i thought i would blend in a little bit and bring color to the day. royal blue .
>> i don't think our cameras are doing justice to that shade of blue.
>> you need your sunglasses on.
>> good for you.
>> tell us what the odds makers are betting on. it's more than just gender and when the due date is.
>> everything. huge tradition of betting. betting on the hair color t weight, the due date -- the actual date is july 13th but now they're betting the name is alexandra. a female, weighing 7 pounds .
>> if that was a guy that would be weird.
>> speaking of, no north whales, then?
>> nobody know what is the sir name of the baby is. so it could be called blue whales .
>> maybe that's why you're wearing a blue suit.
>> you came a long way for those folks.
>> i did but i think they probably will stick with a traditional name. it's all speculation right now but obviously there's a huge amount of interest and there's speculation it's going to do a huge boost to the economy in the uk.
>> july 13th is the due date . are people speculating earlier or later.
>> people are thinking a little later. first babies arrive a little bit late. i hope you guys have your bags packed.
>> i do. your child was born at the hospital, st. mary's where she is expected to deliver. your sister is due around the same time as well.
>> taking one for the team.
>> i like to do my best but exactly t baby is due to be born in st. mary's hospital. exactly where my child was born. they are a fantastic ward for children if there's any problem. so they will be in capable hand.
>> the royal couple does not know the gender themselves yet?
>> that's what they say and among that sort of generation people don't want to know. you have to have a goal at the end of giving birth. something you don't know and that's the ultimate thing to find out.
>> ben and his blue suit, thank you for being here.
