Queen to wear blue on her 90th birthday, say bookmakers


Many of the UK’s top bookmakers predict that Queen Elizabeth II will wear a blue hat when she turns 90 this Thursday.

The Queen wore a pink hat on her 80th birthday in 2006 and now the bookmakers are offering odds of 9.00 of a repeat 10 years. Going by the betting It’s more likely to be apricot or peach at 7.00, but 5.00 favourite is blue.


Nicola McGeady from Coral said: “Betting on the colour of the Queen’s hat is the most popular royal market we have and with such a special occasion coming up this week, punters are lining up early to place their bets. If the gamble is right, it looks like the Queen will begin her celebrations wearing a blue hat.”

For the more ambitious punter, odds of 101.00 are available on The Queen refusing to wear one of her favourite accessories and step out without a hat.
