Paddy Power suspend betting on Royal Baby gender after ‘Mary’ gamble

Bookmaker Paddy Power has announced it has suspended betting on the gender of the royal baby after a flurry of bets for William and Kate’s third child to be named Mary.

Paddy Power saw the “sudden activity” come just after lunchtime as punters put their cash on the couple naming their next child ‘Mary’, and that prompted the Irish firm to close the market on the latest addition to the Royal Family being female.

The bookmaker has kept the name market open though, but it has taken precautionary measures by slashing the odds of the child being called Mary from 12/1 to 3/1, making it the new favourite name ahead of Alice, Arthur (both 8/1), Henry, Victoria (both 10/1) and Elizabeth (11/1).

“We thought everyone was only talking about the Royal Wedding, until someone came along with a right royal bet on Kate and Wills’ third child,” said a spokesperson for the firm.
“We’re convinced now that it’ll be a little girl, with Mary now four times more likely after today’s betting.”

Latest Paddy Power Odds

3/1 Mary
8/1 Alice
