Gamble Landed As Harry & Meghan Announce Baby On The Way – Eight Bets In First Minute – First For Vicky

William Hill have paid out on Harry & Meghan having a baby in 2019 after confirmation from the Palace today. The announcement comes just days after Hills halved the price of a 2019 baby. “There was a spike in the betting on Friday, when Meghan wore a ‘loose coat’ at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, it now appears that it was an inspired gamble from punters who have cleaned up.”

 

The betting is already open for the baby name and the first bet in the book was for Victoria at 8/1. “We took eight bets in the first minute today and given the popularity of the couple this could be bigger than the original market we had for Prince George,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

 

Alexander is the 7/1 favourite with Alice, Elizabeth and Victoria joint second in the market at 8/1.
