A man from Manchester has bet £15,000 saying that the royal baby will be a princess. This anonymous punter normally gambles on horse racing and football and this is his first bet on the Royal Family. The punter has announced that he is not really bothered by the royals but he would just had a big win and his missus reckons it’s a girl, so that’s a good enough reason for him.

A bookmaker set the odds of the baby, due any day now, being a girl at 8/15 and 11/8 for a boy.

Also, William and Kate’s fourth wedding anniversary on Wednesday, April 29, is now one of the favourite arrival dates at 4/1.
