|Queen Odds On to Become Longest Serving British Monarch|
William Hill is predicting the Queen to become the longest serving monarch in British history and has listed her at 4/7 for this to become a reality.
The Queen would need to remain on the throne until 9th September, 2015 for her to surpass Queen Victoria whose reign lasted 63 years and 216 days from 20th June, 1837 until 22nd January 1901.
However, despite positive feelings that the Queen could even remain on the throne until her 100th birthday, there are some punters that believe she will be standing down from her Royal duties and some punters have even been betting on the Queen relinquishing her throne this weekend.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams stated “The Queen looks all but certain to become our longest reigning monarch in the near future but a fair number of our customers seem to think she will step down, with a possible announcement over the Jubilee weekend.”
Such a large amount of bets have been placed on the Queen stepping down this weekend that it has now gone from 50/1 to 33/1 that Queen Elizabeth will no longer be the British monarch after the Diamond Jubilee this weekend.
William Hill is also offering a range of other markets for the Queen ahead of this Diamond Jubilee weekend. It has listed 10/1 for the law of succession to be changed prior to the next General Election. It is also 25/1 for the Queen to send herself a birthday card if she reaches her 100th birthday.
All eyes will be on the Queen this weekend with many bets resting on her future. At odds of 33/1, there could be extra reason to celebrate for some punters should the Queen upset the odds and decide it is time to step aside this weekend.
