Over the course of Meghan Markle’s pregnancy, the name Diana has been a crowd favourite in the Baby Sussex name guessing game. Many fans have speculated whether the couple will honour Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, if they end up having a baby girl.
But this week, U.K. bookies Ladbrokes have announced a new name as the top contender: Elizabeth. An influx of bets favouring the name (a tribute to the reigning Queen Elizabeth) forced “bookies to cut odds from 16/1 to just 6/1,” according to Ladbrokes.
Current standings list Diana in second place with 8/1 odds. Although just five days ago, Diana held the top spot for a girl’s name, with 6/1 odds.
The royal mum-to-be has previously revealed that she and Harry have decided not to find out the sex of their baby ahead of time, but fans are frantically placing best as the Duchess of Sussex is expected to give birth this month.
According to Ladbrokes, the switch-up in name favorites is likely related to the possibility of the royal baby being born on, or close to, Queen Elizabeth’s birthday on April 21.
“Meghan’s due date is desperately close to the Queen’s birthday and the stars might just align for the latest royal arrival,” Ladbrokes said in a statement.
