Royal Baby Betting 2019
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the newest royal couple, are having a baby in 2019 and many are getting involved in the latest Royal Baby betting markets. The most popular bet to have on the royal baby is what its name will be.
Information is sparse, so it's anyone's guess, which is what makes betting on royal baby names so appealing to punters across the world. If your money is on a name, you're part of the event, waiting as anxiously as the couple themselves, who already caused a royal betting storm with their wedding in 2018.
Royal Baby Name Betting 2019
There are loads of Royal Specials Betting markets, but right now the busiest is the Royal Baby Name betting, a new arrival due at any moment.
When the Royal Baby betting market opened in 2018, Diana was the general favourite, Brits considering the newest Royal baby being named after the much-loved Princess as a touching prospect. It’s also a likely scenario for the name to be selected, given how much Prince Harry adored his late mother.
Royal Baby Name Odds
(Betting from William Hill)
- Diana - 4/1
- Victoria - 8/1
- Alice - 10/1
- Grace - 12/1
- Elizabeth - 14/1
- Arthur, James, Mary & Alexandra - 16/1
- Edward - 25/1
That name is still top of the Royal Baby Name betting at odds of 4/1, meaning that there's a 20% chance Diana will be the name of Prince Harry and Meghan's baby.
Victoria, already the name of a Queen, is priced at 8/1, then there's Alice at 10/1, Grace at 12/1 and Elizabeth at 14/1. The most notable longshot offered in the markets is Tyrone at 200/1 with Coral.
Most of these odds are based on past experiences with royal baby names and their heritage. The big difference with Prince Harry and Meghan's baby being that, unlike his brother's children, Harry's are highly unlikely to ever become King or Queen, which gives the couple more naming freedom.
Betting On Royal Baby Name Clues
With Prince Harry and Meghan's baby seventh in line to the throne, the usual list of traditional Windsor names, though listed in the betting, don't have to be paid as much attention as they might have been when betting on Kate Middleton's babies' names.
If you think the baby might be named after Harry’s brother then William is available at 66/1, while Doria, the name of Meghan's mother is on offer at 50/1 and the French Mathilde is 35/1. Given Meghan's African American heritage, Amalia is another option at 50/1. There are a range of other Royal Baby betting markets as well.
Other Royal Baby Betting Markets 2019
Though the name is the most popular betting market in the realm of the Royal Baby, there are plenty of others; You can back the gender of the baby at 10/11 for both options, and you can bet on what time of day it will be born. You can bet on various time windows at 9/2.
If that is too specific for your Royal Baby bet, you can back an AM or PM birth at odds of 10/11 with BetVictor, while Coral are betting on what day of the week the royal baby will be born: it's 5/1 every day.
Some bookmakers are also betting on how many babies Meghan will give birth to. It's 9/2 that she will have twins, 80/1 for triplets, and 200/1 for quadruplets. To enjoy a wealth of other Specials Betting, sign up with William Hill, Coral, or BetVictor today!
How Much Is Bet On Royal Baby Odds?
People across the globe bet on everything from the Royal baby's name to their weight, hair colour, and even future career, more and more betting markets opening up on the Royal Baby as the expected birth draws closer.
When Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton had their first baby Prince George it was estimated that more than £1.2million was wagered on the Royal Baby betting markets. Even after the news was broken that they had had a baby boy, bets were still being placed on what name he would be given, especially as this Royal Baby was third in line to the throne.
Some of the gambling frenzy associated with a Royal Baby comes from the secrecy the Royal Family adopt surrounding the baby's gender and due date; it is Royal policy not to reveal either before the birth has taken place, and there are definitely never any clues about names!
