William Hill Cut Odds On Baby’s Due Date

William Hill have cut the odds for Royal Baby mark two to be born on the 19th, 20th, 21st or 22nd April after a further run of bets have seen the price tumble from 16/1 to 12/1.


“Interestingly enough it is the 19th and 21st which are proving to be the most popular days with the latter, of course, being the Queen’s date of birth and at the moment, as with the name Alice, punters are placing their bets at any price they can,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


The name Alice is 2/1 favourite to be the one chosen by William and Kate and has tumbled from an original 33/1 while Elizabeth is the 9/2 second favourite.
