Royal baby name odds: Diana clear favourite to be Harry and Meghan's choice

Could Harry and Meghan opt for the touching tribute?

Bookmakers have installed 'Diana' as the clear favourite to be chosen as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby name. 

Diana can be backed as short as 3/1 with one bookmaker, with odds being cut from 9/1 just last month. 

Punters have been backing it in their droves, with Diana the most-backed name - taking 50% of all bets from punters.

Diana would be a touching tribute to Harry’s late mother. However, the bookmakers have made Elizabeth second on the list with best odds of 10/1. This would be a big tribute to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Grace and Alice have been names that have consistently appeared at the top of royal baby name shortlists in recent years and they are once again. You can back the name Grace at 18/1 and Alice at 20/1.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "The blockbuster interview with Oprah Winfrey has led to a spike in interest for Harry and Meghan's baby name choice. 

"Punters are all over the sentimental angles, with Diana and Elizabeth extremely well supported in the market. The former has attracted half of all bets, with the latter 15%."

Harry and Meghan baby name odds:

  • Diana 5/1
  • Elizabeth 10/1
  • Grace 18/1
  • Alexandria 20/1
  • Alice 20/1
  • Catherine 25/1
