Bookies slash odds on royal baby sharing Queen’s birthday
Bookmaker Coral has slashed the odds on the royal baby sharing a birthday with his or her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, following a flurry of bets this morning. It’s now 10-1 from 14-1 that the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth tomorrow, on Her Majesty’s birthday, while there has also been a gamble on the royal couple naming the baby Elizabeth at odds of 6-1.
“The royal baby could steal the Queen’s thunder tomorrow judging by the latest rush of bets and if the Duchess does give birth on her Majesty’s birthday, it’s very likely that the royal couple choose Elizabeth if they have a baby princess,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
The latest odds indicate that the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth to a girl at 4-7, while it’s 11-8 that she has another son, with twins still just 2-1.
