Has Kate revealed sex of royal baby?

Has an accidental slip of the tongue lead to Kate Middleton revealing the sex of her baby?

The Duchess was on a royal visit to Grimsby, her 3rd official appearence of the year, when she stopped to chat to members of the crowd.

Diana Burton, 41, handed Kate a white teddy bear as a gift (pictured), which Kate accepted with a smile, saying, ‘Thank you, I’ll take that for my d…’ before abruptly cutting herself off.

Sandra Cook, 67, who was stood next to her in the crowd says she distinctly heard the Duchess almost say the word ‘daughter’ before stopping herself. Sandra said to her, ‘You were going to say daughter weren’t you?’ To which Kate replied, ‘No, we don’t know’. Not satisfied with her answer, Sandra tried to probe Kate further, saying ‘Oh I think you do’, to which she said, ‘We’re not telling.’

We think Kate has got quite the cheeky smile on her face in this picture, was that the moment she realised her slip up?

Our Chinese birth predictor predicts that if Kate fell pregnant in October, she’ll be expecting a girl – spooky! Only time will tell if it’s correct…
