As speculation mounts on exactly when the baby Sussex is due, the bookies are frantically receiving bets.
Since Meghan Markle stepped out with a very pronounced bump, punters are betting that the baby will be due in March.
When the pregnancy was announced, the palace stated: ‘The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in Spring 2019”
Spring begins March 10 and ends June 21, but because of the size of Meghan’s belly, the bets are leaning towards March.
According to British bookmakers Ladbrokes, odds on a March baby are now at 4/5.
An April delivery is evens and a May baby are 10/1.
There is even anticipation that we could have a ‘Brexit baby’, with Meghan delivering on March 29, when the UK is set to formally leave the EU.
"March 29th could be a huge day for the country in more ways than one. In recent photos of the Duchess it looks like her bump has 'popped', and punters now reckon the latest addition to the royal family could be a March baby rather than April." Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told The Express.
