Brolly good royal wetting gamble
WILLIAM HILL fear a soaking as forecasters predicted rain could mar the Royal Wedding. Hills have not only cut their odds for rain to be falling when Kate arrives for the ceremony from 7/2 to 5/2, but have also had to slash the odds about the happy couple having to appear under an umbrella when they greet the crowds from the Buckingham Palace balcony following the wedding.
'No one wants to see rain spoiling the big day but many of our customers will be celebrating should a downpour dampen the happy couple's big day' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Meanwhile, Royal gamblers are betting that a least one of the Beckhams will play a starring role in the wedding, and have cut their odds for Victoria Beckham to design the dress Kate wears on leaving for honeymoon from 5/2 to 7/4.
A gamble that the Queen will wear a yellow hat for the wedding has seen Hill's odds tumble from 7/4 to 11/10.
