The birth of the Royal Baby may be a red letter day, but it's looking more green for betting agencies!
With all the fervor over Prince William and Kate Middleton's heir, thousands have decided to place their bets on the name the royal couple picks.
In fact, Ladbrokes took in over 50,000 individual bets just in the hours that Kate was in labor! Company spokesman Alex Donahue says:
"Never underestimate the British public's obsession with the royal family."
Most bettors are only risking a pound (or a lucky eight pounds), but in the end bookies are making a mint!
After all, only a handful can be right! Heck, more than half the bets lost when it turned out to be a boy!
So far the frontrunner is James. Which name would U bet on?
