Kate Middleton in green coat celebrating St Patrick's DayThe Duchess of Cambridge, who is five months pregnant, revealed she would like a boy while her husband was keen to have a girl.

She was at the ceremony to present shamrocks to members of the Irish Guards on St Patrick’s Day, and talking to Guardsman Lee Wheeler, 29, he asked her whether she knew whether she was having a girl or a boy. Her reply was, ‘Not yet’.

Then she said, ‘I’d like to have a boy and William would like a girl.’

At the ceremony Kate almost stumbled as she caught her heel in a greate. Holding on to William to steady herself she pulled it free.

Kate was wearing the same green coat she had used for last year’s parade. She would have just had the buttons moved to accommodate her growing bump.
