(Newser) – With the royal wedding day approaching, Brits are placing their bets—and some of them are wagering on whether or not Kate Middleton and her prince will divorce. They're also betting on things like the length of Kate's wedding dress train, and how many minutes late she'll be to the church. "It's all in fun," said one bookmaker. But most bookmakers are also running some variation of the divorce question—with almost certain odds that the two will make it to their 10th anniversary, reports AP. But those bets are an "awful idea," gripes at least one Londoner. "You don't gamble on something like someone's marriage."
