How about a titch of jolly good fun? The Globe celebrated the royal baby's arrival in good British spirit by asking you to guess who he or she would be: prince or princess, big or small, when and where (keen royal watchers even knew some answers before the big day!).
Now that George Alexander Louis has been born, we're looking back at your guesses to see how Globe readers fared.

While no reader got every answer correct, Darlene and Jane correctly picked the sex, day, name and location. Among those entries, Darlene was the closest on time (she picked 4:11 p.m.) and Jane was the closest on weight (8 lbs).
Congratulations and thanks for playing!

Royal babies are typically born at Buckingham Palace, but Prince William and Catherine may break from tradition for their newborn.
