Royal Baby part IV? Odds slashed on another toddler announcement

There’s already one Royal Wedding and one Royal Baby to look forward to in 2018. But now our traders believe we could be on for a hat-trick of royal related announcements.

That’s because odds have been slashed on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announcing a baby at some point this year.

After slashing odds to just 2/1 last week, we’ve now been forced to drop the price to even-money following a flurry of bets.

The happy couple took a ‘special interest’ in a baby product at a tech hub during an official visit to Northern Ireland last week.

And that, coupled with several admissions from Harry that he’d love to be a Dad, has led to odds of the pair announcing pregnancy news this year crashing to record lows.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “As if Royal Baby fever wasn’t already high enough, there could be news of another newborn announced this year with odds of a Harry and Meghan announcement at record lows.”
