Bookies believe Wills & Kate considering Alexandra
Bookies William Hill have re-opened their Royal baby name betting, which had been suspended for 36hrs, following a massive gamble on the name Alexandra.
On Tuesday William Hill had been offering 33/1 on Alexandra but after a run of bets and new account openings the price was slashed all the way in to 10/1 before being suspended.
"Gambles such as these are rarely without substance and our best guess is that Alexandra is on the happy couple's short list!" said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
Alexandra is now the 2/1 hot favourite to be the chosen name, with Elizabeth 5/1 and Diana 11/2.
