Dancing Queen expected to get Royal Wedding party underway

| 15.04.2011

No, we’re not expecting Her Majesty to kick off Prince William and Kate’s wedding reception with a dance routine that would send the Britain’s Got Talent judges into a frenzy, but we are expecting Abba to make an appearance.

Prince William and Kate have been caught practicing their moves – see above video – ahead of their first dance and Ladbrokes have made Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen’ the favourite to be the song William and Kate have their first dance to.

Punters can get 6/4 that the Swedish bands appropriately named ‘Dancing Queen’ is the song William and Kate first strut their stuff to as a married couple, while Elton John holds the next two positions in the Royal Wedding betting with ‘Candle in the Wind’ (6/1) and ‘Something about the way you look tonight’ (6/1).

Lionel Richie makes an appearance in the betting with ‘All Night Long’ (8/1) as do British favourites Robbie Williams and David Gray – Williams’ ‘Angels’ is 10/1 while Gray’s ‘This Year’s Love’ is 12/1.

Irene Cara’s ‘Fame’ is the outsider at 33/1 while ‘Time of my Life’ by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes has also come in for support and is available at 10/1.

Royal Wedding fever is gripping the nation and Ladbrokes are offering a number of Royal Wedding betting markets that offer plenty of value.

At Ladbrokes.com you get Royal Wedding odds on what time Kate will arrive at the Abbey, will Kate wear a tiara and even the colour of Victoria Beckham’s dress.

Just like Royal Ascot, the betting on the colour of the Queen’s hat is frantic with yellow the well supported choice for punters.

With just two weeks until William and Kate’s big day, punters should be scouring the Royal Wedding betting for potential value.

A £10 stake on Robbie Williams’ ‘Angels’ being the first dance song would return £110. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a Royal Wedding free bet worth up to £30.
