Bookies have noticed a “big shift” in the betting regarding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s attendance at the Coronation of the sovereign in less than two-months time. The past hours have been particularly significant for those monitoring bets on the presence at Westminster Abbey of Meghan and Harry, one organisation said.
Coral has slashed its odds to 1/3 on Harry and Meghan attending the Coronation, a noticeable drop from 4/5 recorded earlier this week.
“We now make the couple as short as 1/3 to attend. Those odds indicate there is a 75 percent chance that they will take their seats at Westminster Abbey.”
Bookmakers at OLBG also noticed a shift when analysing the odds of the Duke attending the Coronation of his father.
However, their spokesman added: “An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time.”
The Sussexes has since remained tight-lipped over their possible trip to the UK.
But insiders had claimed the Duke wants a meeting with his father to talk through the issues between them.
Speaking to the Mirror in February, they said: “Harry has been very clear and his position hasn’t wavered – he isn’t going to come if he feels the atmosphere will be as toxic as it was during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and funeral.
“He’s said he wants to reconcile with his family and it’s their call, but so far nothing has changed.”
Speaking with ITV’s Tom Bradby in January for an interview promoting the launch of his memoir Spare, the Duke said when asked if he would come to the Coronation: “There’s a lot that can happen between now and then. But, you know, the door is always open. The ball is in their court.
“There’s a lot to be discussed and I really hope that they can – that they are willing to sit down and talk about it, because there’s a lot that’s happened in six years. And prior to that as well.”
If they do attend, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are unlikely to play any official role during the Coronation weekend, much like it happened during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022.
