Royal Betting & Novelty Bets - Guide on the Royal Wedding & New baby
If there’s one thing we can guarantee about the royal wedding, it’s good betting odds. Royal bets are a form of special bets that most major bookies offer. With the wedding taking place on May 19th, there are plenty of opportunities to make your fortune on royal wedding bets.
Royal Wedding Betting
The date is set and Prince Harry needs a suit… Royal wedding bets are massive for betting sites, particularly one that has been so popular. Prince Harry is finally settling down with his American fiance, and you could get some fairly decent odds on a range of royal wedding bets. Within hours of the official announcement of Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markle, bookies started taking bets on a whole load of betting odds. For example, you can place bets on Harry’s best man, who is going to design Meghan’s dress and even whether it’s going to rain on the wedding day (in Britain, probably). The Prince Harry marriage predictions even include who will be on the guestlist (Kardashians at 66/1).
In Britain, we love a good royal wedding, and the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry predictions have started. The wedding is due to be held at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The Queen had to grant permission for the ceremony to be held there, which seats up to 800 guests. As a nod to Harry’s past, he was baptised in the same chapel where his wedding will take place, all the way back in 1984. Meghan Markle will be baptised there before her wedding in May.
With all of this excitement occurring in Britain, you can bet bookies have tapped into it. Royal wedding bets have increased massively over the years, and you can bet on anything and everything; flower girls, bridesmaids, suits, wedding dress and guests.
