Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby has already set an impressive new royal record, despite the fact he or she hasn’t even been born yet.
The couple’s first child, who is due to arrive around April time, has trigged a betting frenzy with a record breaking amount of cash being placed on the date of birth, sex and name of Baby Sussex.
This is massively more than the £3million bet on Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince George combined.
Company spokesperson Philip Trampe said: “Meghan and Harry’s popularity is off the charts and their good news will send the public into a royal betting frenzy of epic proportions.
“Fans are so keen to speculate on every aspect of the baby and millions will be riding on the name, arrival date and sex among many other predictions.
“Up until now, Harry and Meghan’s wedding was the Royal event attracting the largest number of novelty bets on record as bookies took in just over 3.5m in bets.
“Yet the couple’s unborn baby is attracting more than double that amount in bets already.”
Punters having been putting their money on what the royal baby will be called, with Diana taking nearly 15 per cent of all bets.
