Bookies slashed the odds that the royal baby will be a girl today (Wednesday), a day after Kate Middleton seemed to hint she and Prince William will welcome a daughter. The odds of the Duchess of Cambridge giving birth to a little girl are now the odds on favorite with a 1/2 shot, the Telegraph reports. The chance of royal baby boy has also shifted, with the chance now being lowered to 6/4.
In what's being described as an "unguarded moment" in Grimsby Tuesday, Kate Middleton accepted a teddy bear from a well wisher and then thanked the person by saying "Thank you I'll give that to my d--. My baby" She quickly tried to correct herself, but that one little letter has the world all abuzz that Kate Middleton is pregnant with a girl. When pressed by another on-looker the 31-year-old duchess insisted she and Prince William don't know the sex of the baby. She later admitted, "We're not telling."
Kate's denials about knowing the sex of the baby was followed today by a statement from St. James Palace which claim the royal couple has opted not to find out their baby's gender. However, as Examiner.com previously reported, a source claims the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge actually do know whether the royal baby is a girl or a boy, but have only told their parents.
