Kate Middleton and Prince William will soon welcome a baby into the world. While they have agreed on where they want to live and how they want to raise their child, the couple hasn’t agreed on what sex they are hoping for come delivery time.
The Duchess of Cambridge met with the Irish Guards, for which her husband is a ceremonial colonel, and revealed that she was hopping for a boy. Middleton then told the regiment that Prince William was hoping for a girl.
Speaking to reporters Sergeant Thomas Laven, a father of a 7-year-old son, said, “I congratulated her on the impending birth and said you’ve got sleepless nights to come.” Sergeant Laven then added, “She said she was prepared for it.”
Guardsman Lee Wheeler who also spoke with Kate, 31, said:
“I asked her do you know if it’s a girl or a boy and she said not yet. She said ‘I’d like to have a boy and William would like a girl.’ I asked her if she had any names and she said no.”
The congratulations continued throughout the event.
Kate Middleton, in the meantime, has managed to hide her growing figure. Middleton showed up to the event wearing the same green Emilia Wiskstead coat she wore one year earlier.
Middleton was wearing her green coat in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. As she met with members of the regiment and others, she handed out sprigs of shamrock.
Prince William missed the St. Patrick’s Day event last year because he was serving in the Falkland Islands.
In the meantime, citizens in Britain will be waiting patiently to see if the couple deliver a future king or a future queen for the British monarchy.
As we reported earlier in the day, Kate Middleton has been covering up her baby bump and is opting for a “modest approach” for dealing with her pregnancy.
