Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton reveals: "I'd like to have a boy".
The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed she is hoping her first child is a boy.
Kate Middleton, who is around five-and-a-half months pregnant, spoke openly about her pregnancy for the first time while meeting members of the Irish Guards at a St Patrick’s Day parade.
It closely follows her now infamous visit to Grimsby, during which resident Sharon Cook claimed the Duchess had let slip she was having a girl.
As exclusively revealed in the Grimsby Telegraph, this turned out not to be the case, as video footage captured by insurance worker Lisa Hewson confirmed.

However, today it emerged that William would prefer their first born to be a girl.
During her hour-and-a-half hour visit to the regiment's Aldershot barracks she said she is “excited” about the baby, which is due in July, and is prepared for the sleepless nights.
Guardsman Lee Wheeler, 29, who told the Duchess he missed his 22-month-old son whilst on duty, said he chatted to her about the baby.
"I asked her 'do you know if it's a girl or boy', and she said 'not yet'. She said 'I'd like to have a boy and William would like a girl'. That's always the way,” he recalled.
"I asked her if she had any names yet and she said no. I said I suppose you've got to stick to traditional names."
