Keeping up with the royal family is almost as difficult as keeping up with the Kardashians lately. They’re getting ready for two momentous events: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding and the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third baby. And, of course, we’re keeping our eyes peeled to stay up to date on the latest developments on both.
We’ve learned so many details about Harry and Meghan’s wedding, and now we might have some new information on royal baby #3. It appears that William accidentally revealed the gender of the baby, and the internet is freaking out!
It all went down at a soccer game, where William watched from the stands to cheer on his favorite team, Aston Villa, who took on their rivals, Cardiff City. He was ecstatic when Aston Villa won and even met with the players to congratulate them. He reportedly told player Jack Grealish, who had scored the winning goal, “I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack.” He then quickly added, “. . . or Jackie.”
Wait, hold up--does that mean that William and Kate are having a baby boy?! We hope so! Now, we know that this could just be a meaningless comment, or it could be an extremely telling slip. There have been several reports saying that William and Kate don't know the baby's sex yet, but maybe they gave in and found out?
Thankfully, we'll know the baby's sex soon enough because Kate's due date is coming up. The palace never confirmed an exact date, but reports predict that it's going to be around April 23.
And, it looks like everyone is ready for royal baby #3's arrival. The Lindo Wing at the Paddington-based St. Mary’s Hospital, which is where the Duchess of Cambridge will deliver the baby, has already set up barricades around the entrance. There are also signs on South Wharf Road that restrict parking from April 9 to April 30 for an “event."
Kate's ready, too! Reports say that she's already packed some good luck charms for the delivery in her hospital bag. A source told OK! Magazine that Kate will bring a handful of trinkets with sentimental value, including a 19th-century alabaster cameo pendant that was given to her by Queen Elizabeth, and some black onyx beads belonging to her mother, Carole Middleton.
She's also bringing three framed photos of her family, including one with the Middleton family and one with the Queen. The insider also revealed that Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, have given their mom some toys to keep her company, too! Awwww!
