More sites offer prop bets regarding the royal wedding, including who might walk the bride down the aisle and the gender of the couple’s first child.

There are always loose ends as a wedding approaches, but as loose ends go, royal bride Meghan Markle has a royal doozy – she is bereft of someone to walk her down the aisle for Saturday's wedding to Prince Harry.

We’ll spare you ALL the details, but Markle’s dad, Tom, who was going to give the bride away, is having heart surgery and will be unable to attend the royal wedding on Saturday. This is after he flip-flopped on attending the ceremony after it was learned he staged photos for the paparazzi of his wedding prep. He said he didn’t want to further embarrass his future in-laws or his daughter, who asked him to reconsider.

But now he is hospitalized and undergoing heart catheterization, which means he won’t get to the church on time. (We swear those aren’t ALL the details, it just sounds as if it is.) So, who will walk the bride down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel so she can marry Prince Harry? Bovada is offering odds.

The best bet at -200 is the mother-of-the-bride, Doria Ragland, will walk with her daughter. Ragland is followed by best man Prince William (+300), Other (also at +300) and father-of-the-groom Prince Charles (+1000). “Other” in this case isn’t necessarily a person. Many think it is a possibility Markle will demonstrate her independence and walk down the aisle solo. As much as we like this idea, we still think it will be her mom.

Wagering sites SportsBetting and BetOnline posted several prop bets regarding the wedding, including who will say “I Do” or “I Will” first during the ceremony. Odds favor Prince Harry (-500), then Meghan (+300) and the long shot (+1600) that they will say them together. That last choice could prompt a prop bet on how many guests will throw up in their mouth just a little.

Odds also are available on the royal couple’s first child, with both genders at -110. And which royal will have a child next? Meghan at -500 or Kate Middleton at+300. Since Louis, fifth in line to the throne, is William and Kate’s third child and barely out of newborn diapers, Meghan is a shoo-in.

Like other sites, SportsBetting is offering odds on the Queen’s hat color with green favored (-125) followed by blue (+400), pink or yellow (+600) and white/cream/ivory at (+900). We’re sticking with blue.

Odds are tight as to what color hat the mother-of-the-bride will sport: pink (+300), blue or red (+350), green (+500), and yellow (+750).

Sports Interaction also has posted a variety of bets regarding the royal festivities including the bride’s mode of transportation to the wedding and the performer of the first-dance song.

The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will air on all major networks and cable channels, starting as early as 4 a.m. The wedding begins at 7 a.m. EST with a planned carriage ride from Windsor through the streets beginning at approximately 8 a.m. EST.
