While the expecting Dutchess was greeting fans during a visit to National Fishing Heritage in Grimsby on Tuesday, Kate accepted a teddy bear given to her by Diane Burton, saying “Thank you, I’ll take that for my d—“ and quickly stopped speaking mid-statement.
"Did you say my daughter?" an onlooker questioned the Royal, to which she replied laughing, “"Ahhh . . . no, no, no, no. I'm sure, I'm sure. We don't know, so…"
And if it turns out Kate is pregnant with a girl, the Queen’s new decree states that the royal pair’s daughter would be referred to as “Princess” instead of the 96-year-old tradition of calling all daughters “Lady.”
Kate and William’s daughter would also have rights to the throne. The Queen’s legal decision is a major step toward removing gender discrimination from the line of succession. If voted into law by Parliament, it will apply to any and all of the couple’s future kids.
