A FLURRY of bets on what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will name their baby has forced odds to be slashed.
Meghan Markle dropped the big news she is pregnant last month, just hours after landing in Australia for her first royal tour.
She and Prince Harry have been mobbed throughout the visit Down Under, with the baby news sparking an outpouring of well-wishers.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived back in London yesterday after the hectic 16-day tour, when a top contender emerged for a baby name.

A flurry of bets were lodged with the bookies as Harry and Meghan’s plane touched down, suggesting the couple had just decided on a name.
The new up and coming favourite is “Philip”, the name of Harry’s Duke of Edinburgh grandad.
Bookmaker Coral has slashed odds down to 10-1 – making it a clear favourite for a boy’s name, with Victoria remaining a narrow overall favourite at 8-1.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “It’s a name that means a lot to the Royals for obvious reasons and punters are latching onto it now and backing it to be the name of the newest member of the family.
“We’ve slashed the odds and it’s now the clear favourite out of the all the potential boys’ names.”
The bookmaker has also set the odds for Meghan to give birth to twins at 5-1.
“We’ve seen some bets on it being double trouble for Meghan and with odds of 5-1 you certainly can’t rule it out,” added Aitkenhead.
Daily Star Online recently reported how Meghan was pictured throughout the tour cradling her baby bump.
