I like Charles (both for his grandfather and his great-uncle, Earl Spencer)
Albert (for Victoria’s consort – she wanted all male descendants to have that name somewhere in the lineup)
Henry (for uncle Harry)
David (family name, and the patron saint of Wales)
Let’s see how this pans out. Those are my bets.
Oh, and there were four Williams, not two. William the Conqueror, his son William II, William the III (of Orange, who co-reigned with Mary), and William IV, the direct predecessor of Victoria.
King John was indeed a bad lot, but in the more immediate family history, John is a name of sad memory. Many people don't even know that George V and Queen Mary had a son named John (younger brother of King Edward VIII/Duke of Windsor and George VI), who had severe epilepsy and died at 13 (1905-1919).
I predict it will be Spencer after Mama Diana.
Or is that going against the rules?
