Diana is as short as $9 with one bookmaker.

Following Kensington Palace’s news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting a baby, Diana has been installed as favourite among several bookmakers.


Diana can be backed at $9 with one bookmaker, while the top price is $13, showing that the bookies aren’t sure at this early stage whether the royal couple will go down that route.


Meghan’s loose coat at Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday set tongues wagging and now she is confirmed to be expecting, all eyes have turned to what the baby could be called.


Diana is obviously the perfect tribute to Harry’s late mother, however, Alice, a name that consistently appears at the top of royal baby name shortlists in recent years is once again at the top of the market at $14.


Should Harry and Meghan have a boy, the front-runners are Arthur and Edward, at $14 and $17 respectively, which were both names considered by William and Kate.


Oddschecker spokesperson, James Baxter: “Diana may well be the obvious choice, although there must be question marks as to whether it would be seen appropriate by senior members of the Royal Family.


Harry and Meghan seem to be a couple happy to look beyond Royal traditions, so some of the bigger priced names could be worth chancing, although the $500 on Joffrey or Boris are probably ones to swerve.”
