Kate Middleton Pregnancy Update: Sweepstakes Allow Bets on Sex, Weight, Name of Royal Baby [PHOTOS]


Too much and guesses on William and Kate's future baby are all over the news, and a sweepstakes allows fans to gain money from their predictions.

 The "royal baby sweepstakes" encourages friends to gather and place their desired bets on what they think will be the main details of the royal child.

The sweepstakes from Firebox.com allows any group of friends to place a bet on what is going to be the baby's sex, name, and weight. The betting package per person costs £11.99, and is described in the website to be "'Ideal for offices, social clubs and fanatics of pre-natal predictions."

Another category of the sweepstakes encourages betters to guess which magazine will have the first publishing rights to photos of the royal newborn. The "name" category is getting the most buzz, with several names already owning odds.

As early as now, many think that if the child is a girl, the royal couple will name her "Diana," after Prince William's late mother. "Diana" has 6/1 odds, while "Elizabeth" has 8/1 odds. In less than 24 hours, thousands have already placed their bets on the website, and the numbers keep on growing.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess are reported to be in the tropical island of Mustique, enjoying a private vacation with Catherine's parents. Kate and Wills are said to be spending their royal time in a £19,000-a-week villa, without the pestering presence of paparazzi to avoid repeating Catherine's unfortunate experience with photographers in the past.
