EXCLUSIVE: Ladbrokes offers odds on the wines to be served at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding

Location, location, location

LA born and raised, Markle is known for her love of California’s full-bodied red wines.

Markle, who used to run her own lifestyle blog The Tig until her engagement to Prince Harry was announced, was once interviewed by food website The New Potato, where she gave a candid insight into her favourite drinks.

“God, do I love wine,” she said, adding she’d go for “a beautiful full red or a crisp white.”

“But if it’s cocktails, I love a spicy tequila cocktail, negroni, or good scotch (neat).”

Might we see some New World bottles on the tables this year? It’s odds on that Californian wine will make an appearance at 1/3. Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, trail at 5/1 and 6/1 respectively.

UK wines were a major talking point at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s nuptials in 2011, and Ladbrokes believe they will play a part in celebrations again, issuing odds at 5/4 for British expressions to feature.

But of course, this is a royal wedding, and the Old World is still likely to take pride of place. French wine is on at 2/1, while Italy comes in at 3/1.
