LONDON (Reuters) - Heavy betting over the last 24 hours that Prince William will pop the question to his girlfriend Kate Middleton has prompted bookmakers William Hill to stop taking bets on a royal engagement.
"The royal engagement seems to be a question of when, not if, and we were giving away money by continuing to accept bets," said a spokesman on Wednesday.
Tango’s Take Blimey! The second in line for the throne of England is about to be married. If only someone would stop placing bets long enough to bequeath them a rock to live under! If the hoopla over Charles and Diana’s courtship is any indicator, then the William and Kate are in for a touch of media scrutiny. Maybe TomKat should make like Oprah and start a finishing school for ‘razzi-challenged twosomes.
