Exclusive: Video proof Duchess of Cambridge didn't let slip she's having a girl
TODAY we can reveal what Kate Middleton really said about the sex of her baby during her visit to Grimsby.
The Grimsby Telegraph has exclusive video footage from that supposed "slip of the tongue" moment – but we can exclusively reveal that she definitely doesn't say the "d word".
It shows the Duchess of Cambridge accepting a teddy from Diane Burton, saying: "Oh is that for us? Thank you very much, that is very sweet of you."
The video – which can be viewed below – should stop the rumours splashed across the world's media after Sandra Cook, of Grimsby, who was next to Diane in the crowd, was reported as claiming to overhear the Duchess saying: "Thank you, I will take that for my d..."

Our footage was captured by royalist Lisa Hewson, 32, of Healing, who was standing between Sandra and Diane in the crowds outside the Heritage Fishing Centre.
Lisa, an insurance worker, is sharing her video with the world to help pregnant Kate – and its clarity raises questions of other video footage screened by national news channels.
She said: "Kate does such a good job and people are always picking and pulling her apart.
"If you know something isn't true and it is causing trouble, you have to do the right thing, and, hopefully, that is what I am doing here.
"I am sure the lady genuinely thought she heard what she said she did, and I don't want to make her look bad, all I am saying is this is my video, if you want to listen to it, here it is.
"She might look at it and think 'Oh my god, I've got it wrong'.
"It was such a mad five minutes. We were all so excited, it would have been easy to get caught up in the moment."
Lisa is happy her video may help the Duchess and is excited for the arrival of her and Prince William's first child, which is due in four months.
She added: "I hope Kate may see this and think there are some decent people who want the best for her.
"Maybe she might send me a little note or even an MBE, although I think that might be doubtful!"
