The Duchess of Cambridge has made it known to close friends that she could be having a baby girl, but why is she so sure?
Kate Middleton's due date for her second royal baby is next month.
According to an old wives tale, if a woman has a penchant for sweet things during a pregnancy, it could indicate a baby girl.
"Prince William has always had a sweet tooth, but Kate has really had sweet cravings during this pregnancy," a source told the Mail on Sunday.
"She could barely keep anything down in the first months of her pregnancy but recently she just cannot get enough of naughty treats."
It appears that the royal couple are both splurging out on some royal delights.
They were spotted at The Humble Pie bakery, in North Norfolk and reports have emerged that they spent a staggering £13.30 on two cakes.
"Kate has popped into the store on her own and with William," reports a local. "She loves the cakes and says they are delicious."
The cakes in question are baked by someone named Diane.
As royal observers know well, Kate suffered acute morning sickness again at the start of her pregnancy, but has been healthy and active of late.
What do you think? Could this old wives tale about the royal baby's gender ring true, or is it all speculation and nothing more?
