A baby girl for William and Kate? Only time will tell
LONDON (AFP) - Prince William's wife Catherine is normally careful to protect her privacy, so Britain's newspapers seized on Wednesday on what appeared to be a rare slip of the tongue suggesting that her unborn baby is a girl.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 31, was overheard telling a well-wisher offering a gift for the new royal heir that she would take it "for my d...", before stopping herself, according to media reports.
Sandra Cook, 67, said the exchange took place during Kate's visit to the northeastern English port of Grimsby on Tuesday, when her five-month-old pregnancy bump was clearly visible.
"The lady next to me gave her (Kate) a teddy bear and I distinctly heard her say: 'Thank you, I will take that for my d...'. Then she stopped herself," Cook said.
