When achieving your life’s ambition depends on the death of your father, dealing with grizzly morbid details becomes commonplace. Endeavoring for the throne requires the passing of a parent or a family member in most cases, as is the situation that Prince William is currently saddled with.
Williams’s father, King Charles III, was recently diagnosed with cancer. No exact type was revealed, only that the cancer was discovered during a prostate exam and that it is not prostate cancer.
At 75 years of age, the remaining tenure of King Charles on the throne is limited. Online entertainment sportsbooks have long offered odds on the Royal Family and their activities, but now there are lines asking when Prince William will become the King.
When Will Prince William Be Crowned?
Prince William Coronation Odds
- Not Before 2027 -1500
- 2025 +800
- 2026 +1500
- 2024 +2000
The above British Royal Family odds suggest that a King William reign will not become a reality until at least January 1, 2027, nearly three years from today. This is also something that gamblers need to keep in mind, as no payouts will occur for three years if you wager on that outcome.
Does this mean that King Charles’ diagnosis is not that serious? It could, but there’s also the possibility that oddsmakers believe that his superior healthcare services will extend his life beyond normal expectations, regardless of what type of cancer it is.
That said, there are some hefty payouts on the betting boards for wagers placed on a King William coronation occurring between 2024 and 2026. Placing a Royal Family bet on the year 2024 will payout at 20-to-1 if correct. 2025 will reward at 8-to-1 and 2026 is a 15x multiplier.
