Only a few weeks before the Sussexes pass to 4. Meghan and Harry, already happy parents of little Archie, who celebrated his 2 years on May 6, are preparing to welcome a little girl, scheduled for this summer . Tradition requires, each royal birth is preceded by a myriad of forecasts concerning the first name of the future child. Archie, for example, was tipped to be called James, Arthur or Albert by punters. His little sister, too, arouses the interest of bookmakers. Indeed, three names are in the crosshairs of fans of the royal family, and one of them has just passed to the rank of favorite, because of its highly symbolic scope. You guessed ? This is Philippa, in tribute to Prince Philip, the adored grandfather of Prince Harry who died on April 9. Big favorite at 3 against 1 in paris, he is in the race with the first names Diana (5/1) and Elizabeth (10/1), also approached for their echo to the British royal family. An employee of the online betting site Ladbrokes, which English bookmakers like to speculate on, said in a comment reported by the Daily Mail: “Fans of the Royal Family are increasingly hoping that Harry and Meghan will call their daughter Philippa , and we were forced to reduce the odds accordingly as it is the only name that punters currently support “before adding:” It certainly wouldn’t be a big surprise if Diana were chosen, although it seems more likely it is a middle name. Elizabeth is also a popular bet, with royalists believing it could be a step from the couple to Her Majesty. ”
Meghan and Harry: why the favorite first name of punters seems unlikely?
If the punters seem to believe strongly in the first name Philippa, it seems unlikely that Meghan and Harry will opt for this choice, this name already being worn by … Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, who is none other than the shortcut of Philippa. But after all, who knows what the future holds?
