Bookies slash odds on Harry and Meghan having a girl

...and on them picking this royal name!

Prince Harry and Meghan are to call their child after his grandmother the Queen, if the latest odds are to be believed.

Bookies have slashed the odds on The Duke and Duchess of Sussex having a girl and calling her Elizabeth, in honour of her majesty.

With the Duchess’ due date edging closer, the excitement around the baby’s gender and name has escalated.

Previously, the likelihood of Meghan and Harry calling their little one after the Queen stood at 16/1, but now betting site Ladbrokes has cut it to just 6/1.

Other names in the mix include Harry’s late mother Princess Diana.

Diana was previously one of the top contenders but the name now sits at 8/1 at the bookies.

With Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, recently announcing they have set up their own Instagram account, talk of how they will reveal their first child’s birth has also been speculated upon.

Some fans are hoping they will announce the exciting news of the new royal’s arrival on their social media.

Harry and Meghan announced their new joint Instagram account earlier this week.

We thank you for your support, and welcome you to @sussexroyal.’- Harry & Meghan.”

Although bookies say the chances of Harry and Meghan calling their first born after the Queen are good, a recent report claims the parents-to-be are planning to bring up their child as gender fluid.
