Royal Ascot Queen's Hat: Bookies Predict Pretty In Pink

Bookmakers William Hill have opened their annual betting on the colour of the Queen’s hat for the first day of Royal Ascot and currently predict that Her Majesty will be pretty in Pink (3-1).


“The forecast is excellent and we know that the Queen loves wearing pink when the sun is shining,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


The Queen’s hat market is one of the most volatile markets that William Hill trade –as a large number of photographers / courtiers have the information in advance.


“We watch this market like a hawk as in the past we have seen some hefty gambles payoff – hopefully the cat will not be let out of the bag early this year,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan Duke.
