Diana favoured by 25% of Brits for royal baby name.

25% of the British public predicting that William and Kate choose Diana for their first-born child which has been installed at 7-1. The next most popular name amongst punters is Victoria which has attracted almost 15% of bets at 7-1, whilst Charlotte has attracted 12% of bets at 5-1.That said, the largest stakes have been placed on Alexandra, hence Coral making it their 7-2 favourite in the betting.

“The volume of bets coming in on a daily basis is huge and continues to grow as the big day approaches, with betting on the name proving the most popular market on offer. Sentimentality is clearly influencing the punters decision with most backing Diana as the chosen name for the future heir. However, we are running scared from the name Alexandra as that’s where the smart money has been placed “, commented Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
