The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge should name their baby 'Boris', Boris Johnson has said.

Taking part in a Twitter Q&A on Thursday afternoon, the mayor of London told his followers: "I've always thought Boris is a nice name for a girl!"

Journalists, photographers and camera crews, along with keen members of the public, have been sitting outside the Lindo Wing in West London for the past 12 days, hoping to be the first to get the first picture of the royal baby.

Many have set up public sweepstakes on the possible name of the future prince or princess, while others have been a little more creative with their time.

On Wednesday the Queen joked that she hoped the royal baby would arrive soon, as she's going on holiday soon.
