Duchess set to shine on Zara's big day
William Hill have seen a run of cash for Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge to wear a cream or beige hat at the wedding of Zara Phillips & Mike Tindall, which has been cut from 5/1 to 1/1 money.
"80% of our customers think Kate will be wearing Cream or Beige at Zara's wedding on the assumption that she will be going plain so as not to upstage the bride," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
Punters are less confident that Princess Beatrice will bounce back with a more suitable hat and Hills are 3/1 that it ends up on ebay.
