MANCHESTER, England, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Bookmakers Betfred are counting the cost of the new Royal Prince.

The Prince of Cambridge, born on Monday, was well backed to be called George and was the bookies' favourite.

Betfred spokesman Mark Pearson:

"There was a right royal gamble on George ever since the birth was announced on Monday night and the young prince is a bookie basher."

Meanwhile if you placed a bet on the Royal Baby's name at and backed the Prince's middle names of Alexander or Louis you will be refunded your stake as a free bet.
