Nationals think the Duchess of Cambridge may be having a princess… but here's evidence baby may actually be a prince
Did the Duchess of Cambridge drop her guard during yesterday’s visit to Grimsby about the sex of her baby?
Wellwisher Sandra Cook, 67, said: “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!’”
The comments have been extensively reported in today’s national media – but there is a twist in the tale.

Former Grimsby Telegraph reporter Katy Forrester, who now works for the Hull Daily Mail and greeted Kate at the Heritage Centre yesterday, said: “I swear she said it was a boy.
“I asked her if the baby had been kicking. I swear she replied ‘Yes he is, very much so’ but no one else heard! Either I misunderstood it, or Kate is trying to confuse us all!”

SHE came and she won the hearts of all who met her.
The Duchess of Cambridge yesterday put the international spotlight firmly on Grimsby – and the town well and truly enjoyed it.
Hundreds of well wishers turned out to welcome her – and fog may have delayed the arrival but it certainly did not spoil the day. There were lines of enthusiastic people waiting...and we were there to ensure this moment in history was captured as it happened.
The advent of mobile and digital technology has simply transformed the media industry – be it local or national.
With the touch of a button live video can stream across the world and combines perfectly with print to serve readers’ traditional needs as well as satisfying the hunger for instant news. As of 3pm yesterday, more than 9,000 people had already logged on to www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk to read and watch footage – that could easily double by the end of the day. But that instant hit certainly does not replace the keepsake newspaper, which you have today!
