UPDATE: Did Kate Middleton let it slip that she and Prince William are having a daughter? Perhaps not, according to a video recently shown by the Daily Mail. The footage suggests Middleton said “'Is this for us, awww, thank you so much” when receiving a gift from a well-wisher, not “I'll take that for my d..."
It looks like we may have to wait for confirmation from Kate herself before we can know the baby’s sex for sure.
Are Kate Middleton and Prince William expecting a baby girl!?
According to several sources, that appears to be the case.
US Weekly is reporting the Duchess of Cambridge was caught almost mentioning the gender of the Royal baby to a well-wisher on her recent trip to Grimsby. (Check out what Ms. Middleton wore to the event here.) The person in question is reportedly, Diane Burton, and after handing Kate a teddy bear, the Royal is reported to have said, "Thank you, I'll take that for my d..." before catching herself and trailing off.
The U.K. outlet The Mirror even has a voice recording of the exchange.
Other news organizations, like E!, are reporting several people who witnessed the almost-slip-up questioned Middleton on whether she meant to say daughter. Her coy response was consistently, "We don't know..." the baby's gender.
The catch is, last week, a source confirmed to US Weekly that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have learned the sex of their baby.
And along the Royal baby watch way, there have been several hints that Kate is indeed having a girl, says the Daily Mail. Everything from her extreme morning sickness (hyperemesis gravidarum) to her slight weight gain could be indicators she's carrying a future princess.
If this report is confirmed, this could be big news for the Royal family. Queen Elizabeth II recently took steps to ensure Kate and Will's daughter will be called a princess (and her Royal Highness) by overruling centuries of royal gender discrimination in the Succession to the Crown Bill.
