What Are the Odds? Brokers Place Bets on Prince William Wedding Details

Posted on


A royal wedding in Las Vegas? Don’t bet on it. Or, actually, do bet on it!

British oddsmaker Ladbrokes is now accepting wagers on the month and location of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s 2011 wedding, as well as the location of the honeymoon and the designer of Middleton’s dress.

Westminster Abbey is the 8-to-11 favorite for wedding location, followed by St. Paul’s Cathedral (even odds) and St. George’s Chapel in Windsor (20-to-1). Any brave souls betting on Vegas face pretty steep (though probably actually generous) odds of 1000-to-1.

July is favored to be the month of the wedding (even odds), followed by August (5-to-4), June (8-to-1) and May (10-to-1).

And as for the honeymoon, Kenya (where William proposed) leads the pack at 5-to-1, followed by Scotland (8-to-1) and Wales (16-to-1). The Maldives, Australia and New Zealand are next, each at 20-to-1.

Butlin’s, the popular chain of family holiday camps in the U.K., was deemed a 1000-to-1 underdog to host the royal honeymoon.
