Duchess Kate is expecting a boy, according to a new rumor making its way across the internet. British tabloids claim that Prince Harry recently spilled the beans about the baby’s gender to a source close to the royal family.
“Harry has been telling everyone Will and Kate are having a boy and how thrilled he is at the prospect of having a little nephew,” the unnamed source apparently revealed to The Sunday People. “He said the whole family were excited about it. Apparently Kate has always wanted a boy.”
Rumors about William and Kate’s unborn child have continuously circulated since the couple announced they were expecting.
The eagerly awaiting masses have endlessly speculated on the baby’s gender, grasping for any hints or clues dropped by the new parents, or anyone associated with the royal family.
A recent comment from Kate Middleton sent rumors of a baby girl swirling across the globe. While greeting a group of well-wishers in Grimsby, Kate accepted a small gift from someone in the crowd.
While expressing gratitude for the token, Kate reportedly remarked, “I will take that for my d…” — quickly stopping short before the sentence was completed.
When someone nearby asked the duchess if she meant to say “daughter,” Kate promptly assured the crowd that the royal couple does not know if they are expecting a baby boy or girl.
However, The Sunday People quotes their unnamed source as follows: “The close inner circle all know that it’s a boy and they’re busily buying gifts with a boy theme. There will be an awful lot if blue in their house.”
The color blue was at the heart of another recent rumor that suggested Duchess Kate is expecting a baby boy. While speaking with a group of women in March, the mother-to-be reportedly mentioned that she was the proud new owner of a light blue Bugaboo stroller. The color choice ignited speculation that a male heir to the throne was on the way.
Despite the multiple rumors being tossed about, Prince William and Kate have no apparent plans to officially announce their baby’s gender prior to the birth. Their royal bundle of joy is expected to arrive in July, and, until then, the public can only guess if Duchess Kate is expecting a baby boy or girl.
