Prince William & Kate Middleton Royal Wedding Betting

Just what colour will the Queen’s hat be?

Switching our attention from sports for the moment, there is the pressing issue of the next Royal Wedding. Prince William and Kate Middleton appear to be getting closer to setting the date, with the most likely date being for next Spring. Westminster Abbey, not too surprisingly is being touted as the big venue. What may cheer non-royalists about the whole event, is that the couple themselves have apparently given their support to an extra Bank Holiday to be added to the calendar, in order to allow the country to have a day of celebration for the Royal Wedding. The Bank Holiday idea was touted by PM David Cameron, and the couple have put their support behind the idea, whether the wedding falls on a weekday or not. Naturally with all the exciting speculation about the wedding date and venue filling column inches in the press, this lends itself to some betting opportunities. The couple have already been shacked up together, in a surprisingly modern twist on the Royal way, a matter which even Queen Elizabeth has not had any complaints over. The wedding is soon to follow! Hurrah!

The stylish Kate Middleton, whose engagement dress sold out in the space of day, has been courting Prince William since their days attending University together. The charming Prince always gets a good reception wherever he goes, as he is the embodiment of his mother’s charm and charity, the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Prince Williams and Kate Middleton seem to have the fairy tale romance going, and now it is just a matter of time before it all gets crowned in a wonderfully lavish Royal Wedding, which will no doubt stop the country. So what of those betting opportunities? Well, Westminster Abbey continues to lead the way in terms of the favourite venue, and can be picked up at a price of 1/7 at William Hill. The closest in betting to that, is St Paul’s Cathedral which comes in as second favourite for 11/2 at Victor Chandler. Far more interesting is the betting for the date of the Royal Wedding though. May is at shortest odds at 11/4 at William Hill, with July running a close second at 7/2 with Ladbrokes. There are strong indications that it will be a Spring or Summer wedding, so April, June, August and March are in the mix, all priced 4/1 at SkyBet.

There is of course, the incredibly pressing issue of the colour of the Queen’s hat. Will it be Blue? Kate Middleton wore blue to announce the engagement, will the Queen follow the trend? Blue is priced 4/1 at Ladbrokes, with Pink coming in as second favourite for 6/1 at SkyBet. If you want to get more pedantic, then Light Blue is 7/1 at SkyBet, and Dark Blue is 8/1 at Paddy Power. What about the length of Kate’s Wedding Train? Paddy Power are running odds of 5/4 on it being between two and five metres, while under 2 metres in length fetches 6/4. There is also much speculation over which titles Prince William and Kate Middleton will take. Paddy Power are again stepping up to the mark in this market, offering the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for 11/8, Prince and Princess William for 2/1 and the Duke and Duchess of Connaught for 4/1. The title of Duke and Duchess of Windsor comes close behind for 9/2.

One great market at Victor Chandler is a special on the Bouquet. If you expect some fumbling between the Maids of Honour, then you can back the bouquet to be dropped for 7/2. Less in the way of entertainment, is the Bouquet to be caught for 1/6.
