The majority of royal baby predictions, posted on the Mid Ulster Mail Facebook site, proved to be off the mark, when it was announced on Monday evening that the Duchess of Cambridge had given birth to a baby boy.

Prince William said the couple “could not be happier” following the birth of the boy, who weighed 8lb 6oz and is yet to be named.

In the hours leading up to the birth, Royal baby watchers from across Mid Ulster took to Facebook to guess the sex and likely name of the baby.

Many guessed that the baby would be a girl, with Diana, being one of the popular names.

Here are some of the predictions:

Kevin Mc Stravock: “Boy - Tyler Girl - Charmaine.”

Linda Fields: “Boy 7lb 7 possibly James.”

Denise Gordon: “My mother says Katherine Elizabeth!”

Keara Quinn: “As long as both Kate and baby are well, either would be nice ago.”

Jackie Glasgow: “Lilly for Elizabeth Diana Catherine.”

Julie Glasgow: “Diana Elizabeth kate 6lb 8oz.”

David Keys: “Girl. Leia.”

Christine White Hamilton: “Girl and Victoria Diana Elizabeth.”

Amanda Steele: “Ruby Elizabeth.”

Denise Gordon: “Victoria Diana. Vicki for short.”
