William Hill stops taking bets on 2011 royal wedding
Friday 13 August 2010
A leading bookmaker is so sure Prince William will marry Kate Middleton next year that it has stopped taking bets on a 2011 wedding.
The bookie rates June 2011 as the most likely month for the Royal wedding at 1/2, with July 3/1, January to May 4/1, August 7/1 and September to December 10/1.
The exclusive private island of Mustique in the Caribbean is favourite for the couple's honeymoon at 4/1, followed by Saint Tropez in the south of France at 11/2, with a Butlins resort in the UK at 250/1 and Magaluf on the Spanish island of Majorca at 500/1.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "Almost every bet we have taken in the last six months suggests a 2011 wedding and as a result we have decided that the market is no longer viable.
"It is now simply a question of which month and where they are going on honeymoon."
