Bookmakers have suspended bets on Meghan Markle already having given birth to her first child after a flurry of bets suggested ‘someone knows something’.
Paddy Power claimed that the bets, placed on the Duchess of Sussex having given birth during the night, suggested that someone was in the know.
And the money placed on the possibility of the baby’s birth having happened led to the suspension of further bets.
The Duchess of Sussex previously told well-wishers that her due date was the end of April or early May, but she has not been seen in public for nearly 50 days – when she and Prince Harry visited New Zealand House on March 19.
A Paddy Power spokesman said: ‘We’ve suspended betting on which day Harry and Meghan’s baby will arrive following a huge increase in wagers this evening which indicate to us that someone knows something – and perhaps the child is already born.’
