Meghan Markle is not going to be making any public appearances until the arrival of her first child later this spring.
So this means royal watchers are all just, well, waiting, with speculating about the name and sex and impact of the child all that is left to do.
And at least some of them are placing money on their hunches.
Popular British bookmaker William Hill has just revealed that the latest odds have been placed at 8-11 that Meghan and Prince Harry will be having a girl, due to a recent influx of betting activity. Ever since her baby shower, where an Instagram story showcasing the pink- and pastel-colored dessert spread made the rounds, it's been speculated that Meghan had let her friends know she was having a girl.
And now the wagers have seemingly come in with a similar prediction. “We're still taking bets on gender but it's quite a random one.
Currently as it stands, we are 8-11 a girl, even money a boy,” William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said.“ So, you know, the betting is suggesting there's a great, great chance that it's a girl.”
“ 现在的状况是，女孩的赔率是8-11，男孩则是同额赌注，”英国William Hill博彩公司发言人鲁珀特?亚当斯说，“所以，你们看到了，这次押注显示出，是女孩的可能性很大很大。”
