The Bets Are on! What Colour Hat Will the Queen Go for This Time?
The next Royal wedding will take place in less than a fortnight and excitement is mounting. Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Princess Eugenie of York (28) will be marrying Jack Brooksbank (32), who is currently the UK ambassador for tequila brand Casamigos, which belongs to Hollywood hottie George Clooney. The British public officially have Royal wedding fever (again!) and one of the hottest topics of the hour is the Queens choice of hat colour...
Royal (and loyal!) fans just can't seem to get enough of Queen Elizabeth II's (92) vibrant hat and suit combos! Bookies are once again taking bets on just what colour she will be sporting at Princess Eugenie's wedding and if their odds are to be believed, it'll be a an all-blue ensemble.
The Queen is known for her bold colour choices. She wore a bold, almost Kermit-esque, matching suit and hat combo to Prince Harry (34) and Duchess Meghan's (37) wedding in May, and a beautiful buttercup yellow outfit to Prince William and Kate's wedding in 2011. She looked elegant in a turquoise number on the first day of racing at Royal Ascot earlier this year and stole the show on day four in a neon lime ensemble.
A spokesman for Ladbrokes revealed to the Express that "the colour of the Queen's hat always generates a flurry of bets, blue is the favourite at 2/1, followed by pink 3/1, orange 4/1, purple 5/1, and green or yellow at 6/1". He went on to add that "plenty of punters cashed in on the Queen's last hat but we reckon she'll go back to blue this time out and have cut the odds accordingly".
Bets have also been placed as to when Eugenie and Jack will welcome their first child, who Eugenie's bridal gown will be by, with Erdem being a firm favourite, and whether Prince Harry will shave for the wedding!
