Meghan Markle odds on to announce pregnancy in 2018 after royal engagement news

With the news the actress is to wed Prince Harry in the Spring, could another announcement be on the way…


Following the confirmation of their wedding next Spring, Paddy Power are offering odds of 4/6 that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are pregnant in 2018.

And punters can get 33/1 for Harry and Meghan’s first-born to have arrived pre-wedding and to feature as either a page boy or flower girl at the ceremony.

Perhaps then Alexander McQueen label should be prepared to design a maternity wedding dress for Miss Markle as the fashion house is favourite to supply her attire for the big day (7/1). Other highly-tipped designers include Canadians Mikhael Kale (9/1) and Matthew Gallagher (14/1).

Westminster Abbey is a firm favourite to host the event (2/9) but with internet theories claiming Meghan has Jewish heritage, punters can also get odds of 20/1 for the ceremony to be held in any English Synagogue.

The Prince is likely to have his brother William alongside him as best man (1/100), but Meghan’s Suits co-star, Gabriel Macht, is a 33/1 shot, ahead of fellow Suits actor Patrick Adams (40/1) and Prince George (500/1).

With dubstep band Skream reported as a favoured band of Harry’s, they are at 10/1 to perform at the wedding, while rap star Drake is priced at 25/1 to bring a bit of Megan’s hometown flavour to the occasion.

But Elton John, who had a very close relationship with Harry’s mother, Dianna, is at 5/4 to perform.

Asked about the royal announcement spokesperson Paddy Power commented, “The Royal family, particularly Harry, have been bringing the monarchy into the modern era in recent years and trying to live as normal lives as possible. So, what could be more normal than walking down the aisle with a baby already on the way?

“One things for sure though, with Harry’s previous form, Meghan will be hoping that their honeymoon won’t be in Vegas.”
