ROYAL BABY fever has reached new heights with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie all backed to announce pregnancies soon. Could there be three royal pregnancies at once?
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Eugenie have been subject to pregnancy speculation for months and now Meghan Markle has joined their ranks. Could three royal babies really be announced in the coming weeks or months? Well, the bookies certainly think so.
Royal fans were sent into a spin last week after betting on Princess Eugenie being pregnant were suspended.
The Princess of York, 29, has been swamped by pregnancy rumours ever since she tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank last autumn and now baby news seems more likely than ever.
After Eugenie attended designer Misha Nonoo’s pop-up at New York Fashion Week there was a record-breaking flurry of bets on whether she was expecting.

The surge in punters putting money on Baby York caused bets on the topic to be suspended, just after odds fell as low as 8/13.
A spokesperson for betting intelligence Bookmakers.tv said: “The odds of Eugenie and Jack sharing some good news soon have taken another plunge with the latest betting definitely suggests an announcement may be around the corner.”
However, Eugenie is not the only royal who is being backed to make a baby announcement.
Bookmakers.tv added: “As always, Royal watchers would love to see another royal baby, with some punters even suggesting the Queen may have three new grand-children during 2020, as odds plummet to 5/1.”

The odds on both Meghan and Kate giving birth in 2020 have also been slashed.
While the Duchesses are pitted announce baby news months later than Princess Eugenie, punters seem to think the two Duchesses both be pregnant next year.
The odds on Kate having a fourth child were slashed last week after the broody-seeming Duchess cooed over children at an RHS garden opening she attended.
The bookies dramatically shortened the odds on Kate giving birth by the end of 2020 to 1/2.
They also put the chances of Meghan Markle having another baby in 2020 at 4/7.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’ll be plenty for royalists to sink their teeth into next year if the latest odds are anything to go by, with a royal wedding and two babies potentially on the way.”

She described the Prince as “the best husband and most amazing dad to our son” on Instagram.
The heartfelt post was accompanied by a collage of photos including a previously unseen one of Harry and Archie.
Meghan’s praise of Harry as a Dad has prompted fans to speculate that it might not be too long until they add to their brood.
