Betting Activity Reflects How Public’s Confidence in Sussexes Breaking from Royal Family Norms

Following a flurry of activity, the odds of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry naming their baby Kamala have improved significantly. The odds of the baby being named Kamala have improved from 100/1 (1% implied probability) to 16/1 (5.9%). 

“The recent surge in the interest for Meghan and Harry naming their baby Kamala seems to reflect a growing confidence in the couple’s breaking from the norm of what’s expected from people in their positions,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “While the odds still say the most likely names are those with relation to the family and the country’s history, Kamala has received enough attention for it to have better odds than some with more direct links to British royalty, such as George or Victoria.”  

According to the odds, Meghan and Harry naming the baby Kamala is just as likely as them naming the baby after Harry’s father. Charles currently has 16/1 odds to be the baby’s name, as does Oliver. Odds suggest that it’s not likely that the baby is named after Harry’s brother, as William has 100/1 odds to be the baby’s name. 

Odds currently favor the names Diana and Arthur. Both names have 8/1 odds (11.1% implied probability), which are the strongest at the moment. Allegra and Thomas follow at 10/1 (9.1%) and 11/1 (8.3%). 

The betting markets currently favor the couple’s second child being a boy, as the 5/6 odds (54.5%) of being so are slightly more likely. The odds of the second child being a girl are 10/11 (52.4%). 

“Given the time of the pregnancy reveal, many are speculating the baby’s due date, and the bookies seem to favor a July birth,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “The odds of the baby being born in July are 11/8, which are the strongest among coming months. However, the odds of the baby being born in June are close behind at 13/8.”
