Mayday! Odds-on that Meghan Markle gives birth in May

Our traders can report that it’s now an odds-on shot for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to have their baby in May 2019.

Following Prince Harry’s appearance at the ANZAC memorial service on Wednesday, we’ve been forced to slash odds into just 1/5 that the tot enters the world next week.

We’re not ruling out an April baby just yet, though. It’s 5/4 that Meghan gives birth before the end of this month, while it’s a shade of odds-on at 4/6 that the Royal sprog has a May birthday.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Fans may have to wait a little longer to meet Harry and Meghan’s bundle of joy, and we’ve been forced to slash the odds of a birth next month in May.”
