Saturday August 13 is bookies favourite for Prince William’s big day

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

LONDON - Prince William and his fiancee Kate Middleton’s wedding date has certainly become talk of the town.

Paddy Power is offering bets on the royal wedding, with the Saturday August 13 the current favourite at 3/1.

Saturday August 6 has odds of 4/1, while Saturday July 30 - which is just a day after what would have been the 30th wedding anniversary of William’s parents, the Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales - is on offer at 10/1.

Less likely, according to the bookmaker, is a May wedding, with overall odds for the month standing at 12/1.

“Now that Will and Kate have finally confirmed their engagement the big question on everyone’s mind is what date the couple will choose for their big day,” the Sun quoted a Paddy Power spokesman as saying.

“The first to find that out will be able to make themselves a right royal mint out of such sought after information,” the spokesman added.

The bookmaker is offering odds on a number of wedding-related bets, including the designer Kate will choose to make her wedding dress, where the wedding will take place and the title the couple will take after their marriage.

The current favourite venue is Westminster Abbey with odds of 6/5, followed by St Paul’s Cathedral at 15/8.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is the favourite for the title the couple will assume, at odds of 5/5, followed by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor at 13/8. (ANI)
