The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the 1st Battalion Irish Brigade at Aldershot Barracks on St. Patrick’s Day, and allegedly the Duchess, who is five months pregnant, told a soldier that she wants a boy, and husband Prince William would like a girl, The Associated Press reported on Sunday, March 17. The couple is expecting their first child in July, who will be third in line to the throne of Britain.
The Duchess, dressed in a beautiful green dress coat, the same one she wore last year at the ceremony honoring the Irish guard, passed out sprigs of shamrock to the soldiers at the annual ceremony. She also pinned a sprig of shamrock on the collar of the regiment’s mascot, an Irish wolfhound named Dohnall.
During the ceremony Guardsman Lee Wheeler asked Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge if she and Prince William knew if they are having a boy or a girl. The Duchess revealed that they do not know yet, but she is hoping for a boy, while husband Prince William would prefer a girl.
There has been much talk about royal baby names, and if the couple are blessed with a little girl, enthusiastic royal watchers hope the couple will chose the name Diana as the princess’s first name. If the Duke and Duchess are blessed with a little boy, royal watchers hope the couple will chose either James or Arthur as the prince’s first name.
