Bookmaker Coral has suspended betting on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge having their first child in 2013.

David Stevens, of Coral, said: "We saw numerous bets for a Royal new arrival throughout the Jubilee summer, and the betting went through the roof again this week when Prince William accepted a babygro while on a tour of Cambridge.

He added: "We cut the odds to 1-4 and then again to 1-8, at which point we decided to suspend the betting. If the money talks, 2013 will see a new addition to the Royal family."
