If anyone’s going to get an answer out of you as to whether you’re baby’s going to be a boy or a girl, you can trust a nagging old woman to be up there as one of the most likely, and so it proved as it appears that Kate Middleton has apparently blurted out the sex of her forthcoming child while visiting the National Fishing Heritage Centre in Lincolnshire.

Big props to the meddling Sandra Cook for potentially finding out what Middleton and her husband, Prince William, had been hoping to keep a secret until the baby had actually been born. The 67 year-old told the Daily Telegraph “I distinctly heard her say 'thank you, I’ll take that for my d ...’ then she stopped herself. I said to her: 'You were going to say daughter weren’t you?’ and she said 'No, we don’t know’. I said 'Oh I think you do’, to which she said: 'We’re not telling’.”

That is top, top prying skills there Sandra, and we’re sure a nation is going to be thankful to you for prising that potential information out of the Duchess of Cambridge. Middleton also spoke to others about the baby, with Bobbie Brown commenting “I asked her if the baby had been moving or kicking and she said 'Yes it is, very much so.’” We’re not sure why Brown was there, given he’s just been arrested for a drink driving related offence. That or it actually turns out it was a 42 year-old worker from Sainsbury’s. It was definitely the latter actually. We’re not sure about his criminal history.
