The odds have never been better that Meghan Markle will announce she’s pregnant.

According to Bookmakers.tv and Coral, it’s just about ‘inevitable’ that the former actress and Prince Harry will welcome a Royal baby of their own in 2019. The former slashed their odds from 4/6 to 1/5 while the latter site has their odds down to one quarter.

Alex Kostin of Bookmakers told The Mirror: ‘The odds of Meghan and Harry sharing some good news soon have taken another plunge.

‘The latest betting definitely suggests there could be an announcement around the corner and when it comes, bookies should brace themselves for the biggest royal betting frenzy of all time.’

Harry Aitkenhead, the head of Coral, told Express: ‘It’s Prince Harry’s 34th birthday this weekend and with the couple making no secret of their desire to start a family, we think that it’s almost inevitable now that the latest Royal baby will be arriving in 2019.’

Coral has even started taking bets on what Meghan and Harry will name their child. James is currently the top contender for the Royal couple’s baby name pick, but there’s plenty of other options on the table.

Harry said: ‘A Royal baby always prompts enormous excitement over what the name will be and at the moment our punters are backing a Prince James to be the latest to enter the family.’

Fans were sure they’d have to wait a while before hearing any baby news from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The couple are about to head out on a 16-day tour around Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand, according to Kensington Palace.

During their busy tour they’ll attend the Invictus Games, which are being hosted in Sydney, Australia this year.

A sure sign Meghan’s probably not pregnant just yet? Fiji and Tonga were recently hit with a Zika virus outbreak.

Pregnant women are to avoid Zika-prone areas and it’s unlikely she and Prince Harry would risk it.

Rumors have been swirling about the recently-crowned Duchess being with child since photos of her emerged wearing a ruffled blue dress and what appeared to be a small baby bump.

According to The Mirror, however, the dress simply didn’t photograph well.
