Certainly, one well-wisher on Kate’s visit to the northern English town of Grimsby clearly thinks so.
Moments after Kate, 31, received the gift of a teddy bear from a member of the crowd outside the town’s fishing museum, Sandra Cook, 67, says she heard the mum-to-be utter the words, “Thank you, I will take that for my d-…”
Cook adds, “I said to her: ‘You were going to say daughter, weren’t you?’ ”
To which a radiant-looking Kate replied that the couple don’t know the sex, and, “We’re not telling.”
The British media have made the most of the brief encounter. The best-selling Sun tabloid headlined its story with “One’s D” – while rival Daily Mirror called it with more certainty: “It’s A Girl!” Even the staid The Times joined in, saying, “Has the Duchess given the game away?”
