Pregnant Kate received countless presents her on her public engagement in Grimsby, including flowers and both blue and pink gift bags. The conversation between Kate and the local resident has sparked fevered speculation among royal watchers, all eager to find out the sex of the unborn child, which is due in July.
If Kate and her husband Prince William do have a daughter, their baby will officially hold the title of princess.
The Queen recently overturned a 1917 decree which meant that Kate and William“s daughter would have been known as Lady, not Her Royal Highness. The announcement about the decree was made on Kate”s 31st birthday on 9 January.
“All the children of the eldest son of The Prince of Wales (Charles) should have and enjoy the style, title and attribute of Royal Highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names or with such other titles of honour,” a statement said.
Their baby will be third in line to the throne, regardless of gender.
