Many gossip websites, including HollywoodLife
, claim to have seen the report in Us Weekly, as the digital version is released before print copies. The reports say that if the baby is a girl, which has been rumored, the name being considered is Elizabeth Diana Carole
. The name pays tribute to the Queen (Elizabeth), William’s mother (Diana), and Kate’s mom (Carole).
Speculation that the royal baby was a girl started with Middleton herself
. When visiting the National Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby, England on March 5, the Duchess of Cambridge accepted a teddy bear from a local, saying, “Thank You, I’ll take that for my d–” at which point she cut herself off. William and Kate have reportedly learned the sex of the baby, but have only shared the news with their parents.
