Australia: A Breath of Fresh Heir
With Queen Elizabeth II turning 90 today, bookmakers William Hill have given punters a regal treat by opening a market on who will be next to take over the nonagen-heir-ians’ reins.
Unsurprisingly, Prince Charles is the jolly and although priced at a short $1.20, it doesn’t seem to be putting punters off.
“It’s been a glittering 63 year stint for Queen Lizzie – she’s spent longer on the throne than Rebel Wilson the morning after a vindaloo.” Said a William Hill Spokesperson.
“Whilst it seems there is plenty of life left in the old gal, we’re starting to see a bit of money coming in for HRH’s replacement.”
“Unsurprisingly, Prince Charles is the red hot favourite to take over the monarchy and punters are coming after the short price of $1.20 in their droves. We could end up facing a monster payout if Charlie gets over the line”.
Who will replace Queen Elizabeth II as the next monarch of England?
Prince Charles - $1.20
Prince William - $5
Prince Harry - $20
Prince George - $101
Princess Anne - $501
David Beckham - $1001
Royal family dissolution - $1001
