All Bets Are Off! Bookies Suspend Bets On Meghan And Harry’s Baby

‘Someone knows something’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

by Phoebe Parke |

The hype around Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s unborn child has reached fever pitch.

People are camped outside the newly refurbished Frogmore Cottage where Meghan will reportedly give birth, reporters are on standby – watching Google alerts like hawks for the big news to break, and bets on baby names are being made up and down the country.

Now, The Sun reports that Paddy Power have suspended all bets on the day and date of Meghan and Harry’s baby’s birth after a huge surge in bets overnight, claiming the huge uptake in bets on Meghan having already given birth to a baby girl means ‘someone knows something.’

A Paddy Power spokesman said: ‘We’ve suspended betting on which day Harry and Meghan’s baby will arrive following a huge increase in wagers this evening which indicate to us that someone knows something – and perhaps the child is already born.

‘That, combined with the rumours and speculation has us convinced that the royal arrival has already happened and if the betting is anything to go by, it’s almost certainly a baby girl.’
