WITH Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby due any day now, it’s safe to say that the country has descended into full-on Royal Baby fever.
But while we’ve all been waiting with bated breath for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to announce the arrival of their first child, bookies are now predicting that Meghan Markle will give birth TOMORROW.
Although the couple have not announced Meghan‘s due date, Betfair has revealed that there’s a 4/1 chance of Baby Sussex arriving on 1 May.
What’s more, bookies are so confident that the couple’s first baby will arrive this week that the odds of Baby Sussex’s birth on Thursday or Friday currently stand at 5/1.
And while there has been speculation this week that Meghan and Harry will choose an Italian moniker if they were to have a baby girl, Betfair has said that Diana remains the most popular name with 3/1 odds.
However, bookies have also slashed the odds on the name Mary after it was revealed that Meghan once planned on giving her daughter a Cartier watch with the initials M.M engraved.

Meanwhile, Arthur is still in lead as the most popular choice of boys name with 12/1.
Commenting on the new odds, Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbotom said: “Since the pregnancy was announced the most popular name with punters has been Diana, and with an announcement expected any day, the very sentimental choice is still the favourite at 3/1, followed by Grace at 7/1 and Alice at 10/1.
“As for when this baby will arrive, it’s looking like this week could herald the new arrival and we make it 4/1 the baby will be born tomorrow with Thursday and Friday at 5/1.”
