Princess presents: One member of the crowd believes she over heard the Duchess say: 'I will take that for my d...' when presented with the teddy bear before she quickly stopped herself
She's usually so good at keeping secrets. But the famously discreet Duchess of Cambridge may have dropped her guard a little on a walkabout yesterday.
According to one member of the crowd, Kate, who is five months pregnant, appeared to hint she might be having a baby girl.
Sandra Cook, 67, was among the 2,000 wellwishers who greeted the Duchess on her visit to Grimsby.

She told the Mail: ‘The lady next to me gave her a teddy bear and I distinctly heard her say “Thank you, I will take that for my d....”.
‘Then she stopped herself. I leant over and said to her: “You were going to say daughter, weren’t you?” She said: “No, we don’t know!” I said: “Oh, I think you do” to which she replied: “We’re not telling!”

‘I have been here since 10am and it was worth every cold minute of the wait to see her. She is just beautiful and so lovely and friendly.’
Diana Burton, 41, who gave Kate the teddy, was too shell-shocked to recall the conversation. But Mrs Cook, who works in a local charity shop and lives in Grimsby, was adamant about what she heard.
‘I only hope that she doesn’t now give birth to a boy or I’m going to look pretty stupid,’ she said.
‘But she definitely said “d------”.’
