Bets on new royal baby’s name

A new gambling frenzy has overtaken the United Kingdom recently – that of predicting the name of baby monarch-to-be the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge Katherine and her husband Prince William.

With Queen Elizabeth II having had English law updated to state that, for the first time in history, the baby would be heir to the throne whether a boy or a girl by default, all eyes are on the ever-approaching delivery date. Betting has been rife at online casinos across the British Isles, particularly at former Playtech online casino William Hill casino.

Odds are high in favour of the baby (presumed by most to be a girl) being named after Queen Elizabeth or after William’s deceased mother the former Princess of Whales, Lady Diana.
