While few if any of the US-facing online bookmakers have begun offering Royal Wedding betting, the vast majority of British books already do, and the menu is plentiful. 

Odds vary per online sportsbook, we should note.

William Hill had odds on Kate Middleton and Prince William’s first wedding dance.  The odds favored “Your Beautiful” by James Blunt at 5/1.  “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith came in with 7/1 odds.  “You’re Still The One” by Shania Twain and “Everything I do” by Bryan Adams and “Angels” by Robbie Williams listed with the next shortest odds of 8/1. 

The color of Kate’s wedding dress was also among the more popular Royal Wedding bet options. 

Ivory was a favorite at both William Hill and Paddy Power with a similar price being offered at both books.  White came in at 5/2 odds at both establishments.  Cream would pay out 6/1 odds at PaddyPower.com compared to the 4/1 odds offered at William Hill.  On the other hand, champagne would pay out 16/1 odds at William Hill compared to just 5/1 odds at Paddy.

William Hill was offering Royal Wedding betting odds on the honeymoon (no, not the sex – not yet anyway).  In this case, the Designer Of Dress Kate Middleton Wears Boarding The Plane To Her Honeymoon.  Victoria Beckham came in as the 5/2 favorite. 

And, yes, there were odds being offered on the color of the Queen’s hat.  Yellow was 9/4 at PaddyPower.com and 5/2 at William Hill.  The difference is US$1 more in winnings at William Hill for every US$10 bet. 

There were also odds on the year in which Kate and William’s first baby will be born (2013 appears to be the favorite) and the name of their first child.  Poor Fergie was the biggest long shot at 250/1 odds.  Camilla was at 66/1 odds.  Spencer was the 5/1 favorite for a boy and Diana 8/1 for the girl.

For those living in the US, Bookmaker.com was scheduled to release Royal Wedding betting props at approximately 3 pm ET April 6, 2011 (Wednesday).
