Royal wedding specials: Colour of Queen's hat, Harry's facial hair and weather predictions

Fans of the royal family are getting their bunting out for the wedding of the year as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to walk down the aisle.

TV channels are rubbing their hands together with glee at all the hours of content they can stream across their platforms (yes BBC we’re looking at you).

And Sky News has even revealed it is the only broadcaster in the world to show the ceremony live on Ultra HD via Sky Q.

The wedding is taking place this Saturday, May 19, at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

The bookmakers have had loads of fun with their novelty markets, predicting who will be invited to the event, where Harry’s stag do will be and what designer will make Meghan’s dress.

But another hotly contested market is what colour hat the Queen will wear.

Coral had yellow and blue as early contenders, but now the firm makes green the hot favourite in their betting at odds of just evens (from 5/1) after a flurry of bets from delighted punters.

“Excitement is building ahead of the Royal couples big day on Saturday and people are speculating about all manner of details,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

“These markets are always popular from a betting point of view with people getting their bets on, and over the last couple of days we’ve seen a wave of bets for the Queen to wear a green hat as the couple tie the knot. It’s now the heavy favourite in our betting.”

Coral also make it odds on, at 8/13, that Prince Harry will not be clean shaven for the day. It is 6/5 that he is.

Aitkenhead added: “Harry has had a beard throughout his relationship with Meghan, and whilst some men might choose to shave before their big day we think the beard is here to stay for now.”

Another market is the controversial 'what colour wedding dress will Meghan Markle wear'.

The former Suits actress, who has been married before, is 19/4 with Betway to wear any other colour than white.

You can also get 2/1 (from 4/1) that the day will be the hottest of the year.

This week the UK will bask in another mini heatwave after the forecast suggests temperatures will soar later in the week.

The firm is offering 6/4 for 29.1C or higher to be recorded this week, while it is just evens for this summer to be the hottest on record in the UK.

John Hill said: “The betting suggests Prince Harry and Meghan may have picked the perfect date for their wedding as it could be the hottest day of the year so far.

“With temperatures set to soar this week, the odds have been slashed on 29.1C or higher being recorded, while there is confidence behind this summer being the hottest since records began.”
