FOOTAGE has emerged of the moment the Duchess of Cambridge appeared to let slip the sex of her unborn baby – and it has done little to dampen speculation that she is expecting a girl.
Despite official denials that the duchess had given the game away, the video of the blushing mother-to-be seems to validate claims that she began to say the word ‘daughter’.
The Mail told yesterday how the duchess made her intriguing remark during a walkabout in Grimsby on Tuesday, when she was handed a teddy bear by wellwisher Diana Burton.
She was overheard by members of the 2,000-strong crowd saying: ‘Is this for our d?.?.?.?’ before stopping abruptly. Bookmakers William Hill said it was forced to suspend betting on the baby’s sex at 10pm on Tuesday as the story got out and punters rushed to put their money on the arrival of a princess.
Rival Ladbrokes is still open for business – although odds on a girl have plummeted from 4/5 to 1/2, while odds of 6/4 are being offered to those who think the baby will be a boy.
Now footage of the incident discovered by Sky News appears to validate the witness reports.
As she is handed the toy, Kate can be heard saying: ‘Oh, is this for our d.....? Thank you so much. It’s very, very sweet of you.’
Grimsby resident Sandra Cook, 67, then asks: ‘Did you say my daughter?’ A slightly flustered Kate initially looks confused but when she realises what Mrs Cook means, she smiles, raises an eyebrow and wags her finger saying: ‘No my, oh my? No, no, no?.?.?.?!’
At this point Mrs Cook says cheekily: ‘I think you do’, to which Kate replies, ‘I’m sure, I’m sure!’ Blushing, she then stares at the ground and adds: ‘We don’t know, so?.?.?.’, before tailing off.
St James’s Palace has declined to comment on the incident, although well-placed sources insist Kate and her husband, Prince William, have not yet found out the sex of their baby. - Daily Mail
