Princess Diana? Betting suspended on Harry and Meghan having a girl

Harry and Meghan are expecting their first royal arrival very soon and the money has flowed in on the child being a bouncing baby girl…


Paddy Power have suspended betting on the gender of Price Harry’s first child with Meghan Markle – after a flurry of bets on it being a girl.

We were the first bookmaker to suspend betting ahead of announcements over the couple’s engagement and pregnancy.

Now we’re reporting an “identical pattern of betting” on this occasion, and we’re convinced the royal couple will welcome a princess.

That’s further reflected in their betting for the child’s name – with Diana (8/1) the favourite.

Asked about the royal baby spokesman Paddy Power said: “The flow of bets over the course of the weekend has been almost as heavy as the general goodwill towards the couple – and we’re now convinced they’re having a girl.”


8/1         Diana
13/1       Alice
14/1       Victoria
14/1       Grace
17/1       Elizabeth
17/1       Frances
17/1       Alexandra
