The Royal Wedding, What Are the Odds…

It’s well known that  Brits will bet on anything, and with less than 24 hours until the wedding, there is no shortage of ways to lose a few quid. Bookies are taking wagers on the color of Kate Middleton’s dress (odds-on it’ll be white), whether the marriage will survive 10 years (happily, the money says “yes”), and whether the bride’s vows will include a promise to obey (don’t bet on it).

Here are some of the truly silly bets being honored by bookmakers:

The odds that  Best Man, Prince Harry, will forget the ring: 100-1

The odds that the groom will bobble and/or drop it: 20-1

The odds that Kate will mis-recite the prince’s full name (William Arthur Philip Louis): 16-1

The odds on the color of the Queen’s hat range from 3-1 for yellow to 100-1 for black.

10-1 are the odds that Prince Philip will be caught napping during the ceremony.

The odds that Michael Middleton will shed a tear as he walks his daughter down the aisle: 3-1

The odds that, when the Archbishop of Canterbury asks if there are any objections to this marriage, there will be: 50-1 (five of the groom’s ex-girlfriends were invited, as were two of the bride’s former boyfriends.)

The odds that Prince William will be jilted at the altar: 100-1

Odds that there will be a new heir to the throne born in 2012: 8-11

Boy or girl? 50/50
