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.”
