The Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting her first child and heir to the throne, has apparently ‘let slip’ that she is expecting a daughter this summer.
Today’s papers and news sites are now feverishly expecting all things pink come July.
All because a lady offered her a teddy on a walkabout the other day and Kate thanked her with ” thank you, I will take that for my d…… for my baby.”
Oh, come on people. Really?!
It’s a well known fact that Kate and William have a dog. They’ve been pictured out and about with it enough times.
My bet is on the fact that she wasn’t about to say daughter. She was automatically going to say ‘dog’ and thought better of it, as she didn’t want the lady bearing the teddy gift to be traumatised at the thought of little Ted being hung upside down by his earholes and being used as a chew toy/ slobbery bed time pal.
When said lady was probably envisaging little Ted becoming ‘Royal Ted’ and having his own little throne in the Royal Nursery.
I wouldn’t be Kate for anything. Poor soul knows she can’t say anything without it getting twisted and analysed by the entire nation, the world (and it’s dog too.)
If I was in in her shoes, I’d be hiding in the Palace with my feet up, chain eating HobNobs as I know every sneeze and syllable would be scrutinized the next morning.
Never mind Royal protocol and all that guff.
I’d be in hiding until everyone got bored of Bump Watch.
