Bookmaker Ladbrokes has revealed a surge in support for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to pay tribute to his late mother by naming their baby Diana.


Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan’s pregnancy earlier this week and the bookies wasted no time in pricing up possible names for the first addition to their family.

Victoria was installed as the early favourite and remains at the head of the betting at 8/1, but Ladbrokes has been forced to slash the odds on the baby being named Diana from 16/1 to 12/1 following plenty of support for the name.

Albert, Arthur and Philip are all 10/1 joint second favourite, but the bookmaker has also seen plenty of interest in Thomas, which is currently a 50/1 outsider in the betting.

“Money talks, and royal punters seriously believe Harry and Meghan could name their first born Diana,” Ladbrokes’ Jessica Bridge told Bettingpro.com.

“However, should the Duchess give birth to a little boy, Thomas is the lively outsider at present.”
