Berkshire punter scoops a grand as Will & Kate jet off to the Seychelles

| 10.05.2011

A BERKSHIRE based punter has collected £1,000 after correctly predicting where the Royal honeymoon would take place.

The male customer backed the Seychelles at 33/1 and has collected a cool £1,000 after staking just £30 on his hunch.

The odds are also tumbling on a 2012 baby with betting now open on the month of birth. February 2012 is the 7/1 favourite with March an 8/1 chance. It’s 100/1 the baby is born on Wills’ birthday and 125/1 the child shares a birthday with Kate.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “He’s nearly won enough to go and join them. The odds now suggest that a baby isn’t far away and could come early next year.”
