Fancy a flutter? Snow? Aliens? Britons invited to bet on latest royal wedding mishap
LONDON (AFP) - It has already suffered a royal snub, planning gremlins and a last-minute postponement. Now, British people are being asked to bet on the next mishap to hit the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.The cheeky offer from a firm of bookmakers came after the wedding was put back by a day to Saturday to avoid a clash with the funeral of Pope John Paul II.

In odds released Tuesday by bookmakers William Hill, Britons can gamble at 33-1 that a fed-up Camilla will stand Charles up on the day.

The odds for the Prince to do the same are 40-1, while 25-1 buys a bet that Charles's son Prince William will lose the couple's wedding rings.

Even more hopefully, the chances of snowstorms or floods were given at 100-1, while the odds of aliens landing in Windsor on the wedding day were 10,000-1.
