Kate Middleton Is Pregnant Again, Will It Be A Boy Or A Girl?
At the beginning of the week the Royal Family confirmed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or Price William and Kate Middleton, are expecting their second child.
The news was greeted with great joy from Britain and the rest of the world and comes just over a year after their first son, Prince George, was born. However, the pregnancy was announced early as Kate Middleton was forced to cancel engagements due to morning sickness and she is not yet at the 12 week mark.
Of course speculation immediately began over the sex and possible names for the future fourth in line to the throne. Unsurprisingly at this stage most bookies are offering the same odds on either sex, around 10/11. However, already some clear favourites have emerged in the name betting markets with Henry and Elizabeth taking an early lead. There are also markets available on the likelihood of twins and the date of the birth.
Even amongst the royals there is speculation over the baby’s sex, Prince Charles publicly expressed his delight during a dinner on Tuesday night saying “It’s wonderful …. but I hope it will be a girl this time.”
