Recently, the British royal family announced that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant with her second child. And, as you may have guessed, royal predictions have been creating a buzz.

In a BabyCentre U.K. news release, the company predicts the latest royal addition is likely to be given a traditional name: While "Victoria, currently at number 71 in the baby name chart, has strong royal heritage and is still a popular choice in royal circles, Kate and William may want to choose something more current, like they did for baby George." BabyCentre U.K. believes they may choose Charlotte if the baby is a girl or James if it's a boy.

So, will there be a "royal baby frenzy" as when Prince George arrived? According to a HuffPost/YouGov poll, Americans just aren't that interested.

Of the 1,000 people polled, only 7percent said they've been following the news, while 22 percent said they follow it somewhat closely. Thirty percent said they haven't paid attention at all.
