Who says D is for Daughter?!
6th March: Unless you've been living in a cave for the last 24 hours, you can't fail to have heard about the "fact" Kate Middleton is expecting a girl.
Newspapers around the world have lapped up the story after Kate made a public appearance yesterday and (apparently) stumbled, appearing to hold herself back at the last minute.
Word is, a lady in the crowd leaned forward and offered Kate a teddy bear, to which Kate replied with, "Thank you, I'll take that for my d-...." It's still unclear if any actual reporters heard this exchange. And it's also unclear if Kate was talking about her bump.
With excitement about the royal baby reaching fever pitch already, it was just the excuse needed to start talking about Kate and Wills' approaching arrival, so everyone jumped on the bandwagon, assuming Kate was DEFINITELY going to say "DAUGHTER!" And, of course, that now means Kate is having a girl. Fact.
Or does it?
Personally, I'm not convinced. I mean, who's to say she was even going to say "Daughter" anyway? There are lots of other words that begin with "D" after all.
Because he's a great actor *cough* Adam has acted out the situation with Kate yesterday and done his best royal impression so we can be totally clear what was said:
I'm not the only one who thinks the D might not stand for daughter.
Derek in Chippenham reckons Kate was going to say: "I'll take that teddy for my... DONKEY."
Oz thinks she was about to say: "I'll take that teddy for my... DELIGHTFUL nursery which covers 25 acres."
And Shirley in Calne has this idea about it: "I'll take that teddy for my... DARLING grandmother-in-law who feels poorly at the moment."
What do you think D stands for?!
