What did the bookies say about the royal baby?

A spokesman for Paddy Power said: “There’s Royal baby news, folks! No, not Harry and Meghan, but Princess Eugenie and Jack Brookbanks are set to have a child in early 2021.

“Alice and Arthur currently lead the market, though perhaps if they really wanted to cap off the madness of this year, they’d opt for the name ‘Boris’ or even ‘Brexit.'”
