Next Royal Baby – A Boy on the way?

Harry and Meghan's first child is....

Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting

Ladbrokes reported this week that they had received a heavy trend on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first child being a boy. Even though the Girl option is the market favourite at 8/11 odds, the operator reported that some heavy support had come in for the Boy at even money* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on February 14th, 2019 at 3:09 pm).

The Nexy Royal Baby Name market is always going to be a bit volatile, because of the unknown sex. It is Victoria which is still leading the way at 8/1 to be the name of the next Royal born* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on February 14th, 2019 at 3:09 pm). But with the trend towards a boy this week, it has brought a couple of male names into the spotlight.

The strongest options in the Next Royal Baby name market are Albert and Phillip which are joint 12/1 options at Ladbrokes. The bookie also reported that the name Arthur had received enough backing over the week to have had a price trimmed down to 16/1 odds* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on February 14th, 2019 at 3:09 pm).
