Paddy Power today launched a whole host of Royal Wedding Wagers following today’s exciting news that Prince William is finally set to marry his long term love Kate Middleton. Royal officials confirmed today that the couple got engaged last month and a wedding will take place either next spring or summer.

The only bookie to offer bets on the specific date of the wedding, Paddy Power make August 13th 2011 the current favourite at 3/1 to host the big day with the week earlier on Saturday 6th August at 4/1. Less likely at 10/1 is Saturday 30th July, which would fall just a day after the 30th anniversary of William’s parents’ wedding when Charles and Diana tied the knot at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Paddy Power, said: “Now that Will and Kate have finally confirmed their engagement the big question on everyone’s mind is what date the couple will choose for their big day. The first to find that out will be able to make themselves a right royal mint out of such sought after information.”

With a relatively quiet sporting summer next year 2011 is the perfect time for a summer of royal celebrations! Not only will next year see a Royal wedding but the Queen’s 85th birthday and Prince Phillip’s 90th will be celebrated ahead of the big Olympic year in 2012.

As well as speculating on the date of Prince William and Kate’s wedding, Paddy Power have also opened betting on where the lavish ceremony will take place with Westminster Abbey the 6/5 favourite, and what title William will assume once hitched with the Duke of Cambridge the 5/4 favourite. There’s even betting on what designer Kate will choose to create the stunning wedding gown that will surely go down in history.

Where will the wedding take place?
In recent times the smaller Royal weddings have been held at St George’s Chapel, Windsor but this might be a little on the small side for a future King. Despite hosting his mother’s funeral and the Queen Mother’s funeral Westminster Abbey is the obvious choice of venue with Prince William believed to be reluctant to opt for St Paul’s Cathedral where he mother and father were united in 1981.

6/5 Westminster Abbey
15/8 St Paul’s Cathedral
5/2 St George’s Chapel, Windsor
12/1 Queen’s Chapel, St James’

What title will the married couple take?
It’s customary for a sovereign to bestow a dukedom on a male heir when he marries. Currently there are four dukedoms in suspension: Windsor, Connaught, Sussex and Cambridge and according to Paddy Power William is most likely to opt for Cambridge. If the couple are not given a dukedom Kate will be known formally as Princess William!

5/4 Duke & Duchess of Cambridge
13/8 Duke & Duchess of Windsor
5/1 Duke & Duchess of Sussex
5/1 Duke & Duchess of Connaught
12/1 Prince & Princess William

UK TV Viewers
England’s 1966 World Cup victory is, so far, the most-watched TV broadcast in British history having raked in a mammoth 32.30m. The Funeral of Princess Diana in 1997 is second on the list having attracted 32.10m while Charles& Diana’s wedding in 1981 is 7th on the list with viewing figures of 28.40m. Viewing tastes have changed in recent years however and it’s 9/2 that less than 26 million tune in on Kate & Will’s big day.
9/2 Less than 26 million
5/1 26,000,001 to 28,000,000
7/2 28,000,001 to 30,000,000
5/2 30,000,001 to 32,000,000
10/3 32,000,001 to 34,000,000
4/1 34,000,001 to 36,000,000
3/1 More than 36 million


Kate is a fan of Brazilian designer Daniella Issa Helayel and her label ISSA but can be expected to opt for a British designer on the big day. Amanda Wakeley is known for her elegant sweeping gowns having designed dresses for Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Princess Diana and Queen Rania of Jordan in the past. Indian inspired designer Matthew Williamson is the bookies second favourite to create Kate’s beautiful wedding gown while Grande Dame Vivienne Westwood amongst the well known names tipped to create a royal masterpiece.

How long will Kate’s train be?
Chances are Kate will not have a train. Her style is simple and understated and trains are no longer considered fashionable. Diana’s train was 8 meters long. If Kate does opt to go all out, Paddy Power are tipping her train to fall somewhere between 2 and 5 meters long! Bets will be void if Kate decides on no train.

6/4 Less than 2 meters
5/4 2.01 to 5 meters
4/1 5.01 to 8 meters
8/1 More than 8 meters

Colour of Queen’s Hat
The Queen wore a blue hat for Charles’ and Diana’s wedding and a yellow hat for Charles’ & Camilla’s wedding. It’s difficult to say what colour she might opt for but pastels are definitely her style. Paddy Power make pink their 9/2 favourite.
