British bookmakers William Hill have released odds for a series of events on and around the royal wedding. They are also changing their name for the day to “William & Kate” because what are gambling addicts going to do, not gamble due to a stupid name? The list of odds includes standard offerings like “what time will Kate enter Westminster Abbey” and wacky prop bets like whether or not Prince Harry forgets the ring. More odds after the jump!
7/1 that the BBC’s live coverage in the church fails
12/1 Elton John to sing live at the reception
16/1 Prince Harry to meet his future wife at the wedding
17/1 William to have a beard during the service
20/1 Kate to have twins [assumedly not during the service itself]
23/1 Carole Middleton to be snapped chewing gum during the service
25/1 Harry not to make/finish his speech due to being inebriated
100/1 Kate wears a Galliano dress while boarding the plane to her honeymoon
It’s like the Super Bowl, but with ascots!
William Hill become William & Kate for 24 hours [William Hill]
