Prince Louis is less than a week old, but already people are betting on his future.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kept everyone guessing for days about his name, and it was a decent gamble – rated at over 20/1 earlier this week before being backed into 3/1 just hours before it was announced.
Now a host of markets have been opened, ranging from whether he might become an England international in the future to which University he will attend.
“The Bookmakers were happy with the name choice, they made quite a lot on that market – we saw runs on Philip, James, Arthur and Albert but they kept Louis quite for the most part,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“But the betting has only just got started – already you can get 2/1 that the future King William will have a fourth child.
“He is 50/1 to win an Olympic Medal, 1,000/1 to play for England in any sport – whilst University wise, he is 2/1 to follow in the footsteps of his dad and go to St Andrews.”
Selected Royal odds:
Duke & Duchess have a fourth Child – 2/1
To Represent England in sport – 1000/1
To Win Olympic Medal – 50/1
To Achieve 3 A’s In A Levels – 6/1
Which University Will Louis Attend – 2/1 St Andrews, 4/1 Cambridge, 5/1 Oxford, 6/1 Edinburgh, 14/1 Univ. of Manchester, 14/1 Kings College London, 16/1 Durham, 20/1 Exeter, 25/1 Cardiff, 25/1 York, 33/1 Belfast, 50/1 Keele
