A bookmaker has slashed odds that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby will be a girl.
Meghan, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, are expecting their first child in late April and if a recent flurry of bets is anything to go by, a new princess may be on the way.
Betfair has revealed that a girl for the parents-to-be are now odds-on at 1/2 after being a popular choice with punters.
‘Following a significant bet this afternoon we’ve slashed the odds of the Royal baby being a girl from 10/11 to 1/2 , with a boy now out to 6/4,’ said Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis.

Make like Meghan in a chain print dress by Victoria Beckham
The Duchess of Sussex never lets us down when it comes to chic styling.
Last week, she attended an event at Canada House wearing a bespoke green coat and dress by Erdem, based on designs from his AW19 collection, before changing into a completely different outfit for the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.
Meghan looked ultra chic as always but her latest ensemble (opting for a dress, coat, bag and shoes by Victoria Beckham) has got to be one of our favourites yet. This cream chain print midi is a custom made take on the label’s forthcoming AW19 line and we love the elegant shade and floaty fit.
The exact piece isn’t available online and everything featuring that sleek print has nowsold out after being spotted on the royal.
Thankfully, if you are as obsessed with the style as we are, you can find more chain print dresses (below) to tempt you from the likes of Boohoo, Unique 21, Alexis and Liu Jo that’ll give you the look without breaking the bank.

She added: ‘This bet is one of the biggest we’ve seen on the Royal Baby markets this year so could be a big clue that we will have a new Princess in the coming weeks.’
Meanwhile, Diana – in honour of Harry’s late mother – still remains the 5/1 favourite for the name.
‘Diana is the big 5/1 favourite for the name of the baby, with Grace, Victoria and Alice all at 14/1,’ said Katie. ‘Arthur is the favourite boy’s name at 8/1 ahead of James and Edward at 14/1.’

Coral has it at 10-1, down from 25-1, that Harry and Meghan’s child will put in an appearance on April 21 – which is also Easter Sunday this year.
The Queen turns 93 in a month’s time and will be the baby’s great-grandmother.
Royal Baby Name – Betfair Odds
Diana – 5/1
Arthur – 8/1
Grace – 14/1
James – 14/1
Victoria – 14/1
Alice – 14/1
Edward – 14/1
Heavily pregnant Meghan visited New Zealand House, London, on Tuesday with Harry to pay their respects to the victims of the Christchurch terror attack.
The American former actress has said she is due to give birth in late April or early May.
‘With Meghan due towards the end of April we could be heading for one of the more memorable Easter Sundays in the royal household,’ explained Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.
‘Not only would the baby be born on the holiday, it also would then share a birthday with the Queen.
‘It would be an incredible coincidence and we’ve slashed our odds on it coming true next month.’
