After Prince Philip‘s passing last month, U.K. gambling site Ladbrokes has seen Philippa grow as a popular prediction for Meghan and Harry’s daughter — the betting odds? 3/1.
“The support for baby Philippa is showing no signs of slowing down, and we’ve been forced to trim the odds again that it’s the name for Harry and Meghan’s daughter,” said Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes.
Harry’s cousins Princess Eugenie as well as Zara Tindall also paid tribute to their grandfather just before his death by giving their newborn sons the middle name Philip.
Other top name predictions would honor other Royal Family members, Diana, after Harry’s late mother Princess Diana, and Elizabeth, after Harry’s grandmother the Queen, are near the top of the leaderboard at 5/1 and 10/1, respectively.
When Meghan, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, welcomed their first child in 2019, they decided on Archie which came as a surprise to bookies and civilians alike.
The couple announced their pregnancy news on Valentine’s Day in a gorgeous Instagram post.
Harry & Meghan can be seen holding Archie close while meghan boasts a sweet baby bump (or should we say — future Philippa!).
It was during the couple’s infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey where they revealed that their second child was a girl.
“To have a boy then a girl — what more can you ask for?” Harry said.
Prince Harry added: “Grateful, having any child, any one or a two would have been amazing, but to have a boy and then a girl . . . now we’ve got our family and we’ve got four of us.”
