After showing off her newly popped baby bump and freeing her stuck heel from a drain, Kate Middleton revealed new insight into the royal baby today (Sunday) during the St. Patrick's Day Military Parade. While chatting with Guardsman Lee Wheeler, the Duchess of Cambridge confirmed the couple is split on whether they want a boy or a girl. "She said 'I'd like to have a boy and William would like a girl,'" People quotes Wheeler as saying.
The 29-year-old guardsman confirms he also asked Kate two other burning questions in an attempt to clear up some of the biggest royal baby rumors. "I asked her 'Do you know if it's a girl or a boy?' and she said 'not yet.'" The duchess also reportedly told Wheeler she and Prince William have not yet picked out baby names.
The telling conversation adds confusion to previous reports that claim the Cambridges know the sex of the royal baby and have settled on "Elizabeth Diana Carole" for a royal baby girl. Buzz that Kate and William are expecting a daughter started during her March 5 visit to Grimsby. One admirer caused worldwide excitement when she swore the pregnant duchess referred to the baby as "our d---." A few days later, a reporter claimed Catherine called the baby a "he" during that same royal engagement.
Whatever they welcome in July, the duchess says she's "very" excited and is prepared for the sleepless nights to come.
