Meghan Markle is not going to be making any public appearances until the arrival of her first child later this spring.
So this means royal watchers are all just, well, waiting, with speculating about the name and sex and impact of the child all that is left to do.
And at least some of them are placing money on their hunches.
Popular British bookmaker William Hill has just revealed that the latest odds have been placed at 8-11 that Meghan and Prince Harry will be having a girl, due to a recent influx of betting activity. Ever since her baby shower, where an Instagram story showcasing the pink- and pastel-colored dessert spread made the rounds, it's been speculated that Meghan had let her friends know she was having a girl.
And now the wagers have seemingly come in with a similar prediction. “We're still taking bets on gender but it's quite a random one.
Currently as it stands, we are 8-11 a girl, even money a boy,” William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said.“ So, you know, the betting is suggesting there's a great, great chance that it's a girl.”
“ 現在的狀況是，女孩的賠率是8-11，男孩則是同額賭注，”英國William Hill博彩公司發言人魯珀特?亞當斯說，“所以，你們看到了，這次押注顯示出，是女孩的可能性很大很大。”
