Never before has speculation been higher over a royal wedding taking place than these past weeks.
As such, bookies have taken Royal Wedding betting to a new level, opening multiple markets, ranging from where the marriage will take place to the colour of the Queen's hat.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have certainly helped fuel rumours of late, especially with the bride-to-be's parents being invited to attend a private shooting party on the Queen's Scottish estate in the Balmoral hills.
According to sources close to the royal family "it's just a matter of time", before the couple announce their engagement.
"This is the Middletons being taught to be able to join the royals at play," said the source. "William and Kate do go to Balmoral quite a bit but inviting her parents is a big deal. This is virtually confirmation that they're his in-laws-to-be."
Some of the markets currently available at Paddy Power include:
Where will the marriage take place?
Westminster Abby 6/5
St. Paul's Cathedral 15/8
St. George's Chapel, Windsor 5/2
