Extracted from www.mirror.co.uk. (5/6/2013): "So far all the smart money has been on Kate and William’s first-born being a girl. But the Sunday People can reveal that Prince Harry is telling close friends the Royal couple are expecting a BOY. The delighted Prince is so excited about becoming an uncle that he couldn’t help revealing the sex of the child. And while The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made no official comment about the baby due in mid-July, Harry has found it hard to keep the secret. A source close to the Prince told the Sunday People: “Harry has been telling everyone Wills and Kate are having a boy and how thrilled he is at the prospect of having a little nephew. “He said the whole family were excited about it. Apparently Kate has always wanted a boy. “They’re really working hard on baby names now and think they have it sorted. “But they won’t reveal anything to *anyone – not even Harry. Of course, Harry’s been making up crazy suggestions and winding them up too. “The close inner circle all know that it’s a boy and they’re busily buying gifts with a boy theme. There will be an awful lot if blue in their house.” Officially, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have refused to divulge the sex of their new arrival. But seven-months-pregnant Kate has dropped a couple of hints. In March she sparked frenzied speculation that made headlines around the world when she appeared to accidentally suggest that a girl was on the way. It happened during a walkabout in Grimsby, when Kate was presented with a teddy by a local well-wisher. She thanked the woman for the gift and said: “I will take that for my d..” – and then stopped herself. A nearby listener said: “You were going to say daughter, weren’t you?” Kate replied: “No, we don’t know.” Prince William’s cousin Princess Eugenie has also been telling friends that the baby is a boy, according to sources.
