Royal Family Odds: What Does The Future Hold For Meghan And Harry?

What's next for Princess Megan and Prince Harry? Get the down low on the latest Royal family odds.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in March was easily the most-watched non-sporting event in North America in 2021 and had both positive and negative revelations about Great Britain’s Royal Family.

One of those positive ones was learning that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are having a baby girl this summer, and sportsbooks have released a variety of entertainment betting props in the form of Royal Family betting odds.

The best online sportsbooks monitoring Royal Family betting odds have released props on what month and day of the week the second child of the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be born, along with potential baby names. The betting favorite for the baby girl’s name is Diana – the name of Harry and his brother William’s mother – at +300.

It’s been a somber time recently for the Royal Family, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle planning to renounce their titles, their eye-opening claims during their interview with Oprah, and now the passing of Prince Philip. However, there was some good news to come out in all of this in 2021, with the announcement Markle is expecting a second child.

Diana is the betting favorite at +300 to be the name of their daughter, which of course would be very fitting for Harry and the Royal Family. Prince Harry and Prince William lost their mother in a tragic car accident in 1997 – Diana was revered across the globe as an advocate for women’s rights and for her charitable contributions and was known in the U.K. as the “People’s Princess.”

This isn’t the first time betting odds have been tied to the Royal Family. In the past, prop bets have ranged from what Prince William and Kate would name their babies to odds that Prince Charles is one day named king. Some pundits believe Prince Harry and Meghan are eager to start a private life because he’s sixth in line to the throne. His line of succession trails behind his father Charles, brother William, nephews Prince George and Prince Louis and niece Princess Charlotte.

When Will Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s Second Child Be Born?

For anyone who likes a good baby pool for guessing the date when an expecting mother will give birth to her child, none will likely hold a candle to correctly guessing when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will welcome their baby girl. Markle announced the pregnancy on Valentine’s Day in 2021 and confirmed in the interview with Oprah that she and Prince Harry are expecting a baby girl.

Looking at pictures from their interview with Oprah, it’s hard to project how far along Markle is with her pregnancy, with an average pregnancy cycle of 38 to 42 weeks. Based on that, it makes sense that Markle would likely be due to give birth in late June or early July, which is why “July” is the betting favorite at +135 and June is the second betting option at +175.

Every pregnancy is different, which makes baby birth pools very exciting to bet on, and if you think Markle’s term will go all the way to 42 weeks, August could be a decent betting option at +450.

As for the day of the week, your guess is as good as mine. Sportsbooks have +500 odds with each day of the week listed and since my daughters were born on Monday and Tuesday, I’d likely roll the dice on those two days for good luck.

What’s the Difference Between Sports Betting and a Bet on the Royal Family?

When you bet on sports like football, you have handicapping information at your fingertips. There are sportscasters and talking heads giving their two cents, and major outlets covering the games. Plus, Odds Shark’s NFL experts weigh in with the best betting tips you can get. You can look at a receiver’s numbers, you can see how a team performs against the spread, and you can look at consensus data to see which side the betting public is heavily favoring.

When it comes to betting on the Royal Family, things aren’t as clear. Instead of relying on ATS info and other stats like points per play, you’d look at gossip sites, entertainment shows and the chatter on Twitter. However, you don’t have time to do that, so we’ll do it for you.

You may be thinking, “I watch The Crown. I’m ready to bet.” Although Netflix has produced an entertaining oeuvre about the Royal Family, it should not be used as a handicapping tool. The show may get some stuff right, but it does take liberties to create tension and more interesting storylines. Seriously, the guy from Dexter plays JFK. It’s only one episode but it’s a stretch. 

What do the + and - Signs Mean For Royal Family Betting Odds?

As with betting on sports, there is a favorite and an underdog. The minus sign (-) indicates the fave and the plus sign (+) shows the dog. Since these are props and not moneyline bets where you are taking one team to win over the other, if you wanted to bet the favorite, you would take the option with the minus sign (-) or if there are only odds with plus signs (+) you would choose the option with the lowest odds.
