Kate Middleton and Prince William will produce the first heir to the throne in 2012, if the gamblers in the UK have anything to say about it. Gambling odds have the first born of Kate and William entering the world sometime in July of 2012. The name of the baby is also a big betting draw with Spencer, Frances, John or Diana out in front, according to The Star.com.
Rupert Adams, spokesperson for the UK betting house William Hill, says that “there’s a genuine belief that William and Kate will produce and heir in 2012.” People are so sure of this, that this betting house hasn’t taken a bet on any other year in almost a month.
The lines put July as the best month for Kate Middleton to give birth at 3-1 and it jumps to 50-1 for February. It’s even money on a boy or a girl baby. April 29th is Kate and William’s anniversary and the odds are 250 – 1 that their first baby will be born on that date. Prince Harry carries the odds of 16-1 that he’ll marry in 2012.
