Bookmakers Cashing In On Prince George Christening
Following the betting frenzy in July with the Royal Birth of the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, there is another reason why bookmakers are cashing in on the royal couple. Wednesday see’s the royal christening of Prince George and punters are already placing bets on just about anything related to Princess Kate and Prince William. The color of Princess Kate’s dress being blue has received over 500 bets by a bookmaker. Other bets include what color the hat the Queen will wear and who will carry Prince George as the Royal couple leave the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.
Leading bookmaker Coral’s Nicola McGeady commented on the betting frenzy.” Betting on the Royal Baby has reached fever pitch once again, and we are seeing massive interest in our Royal Christening odds. Kate wore a blue dress when she left the hospital with Prince George in July, and punters are convinced that the Duchess will wear a similar shade on Wednesday.”
For those still wanting to place bet before Wednesday the hot bet is for Kate to carry Prince George out of the Chapel at 8-13 with Prince William offering odds of 6-5.
Wherever bets are offered there will always be excellent odds at some outrageous bets like that of the Duchess of Cambridge wearing a gold dress for the christening. For this unrealistic scenario you can get odds of 66-1.
