VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

DID THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE LET SLIP THE GENDER OF HER BABY SHE IS EXPECTING WITH PRINCE WILLIAM?

WHILE IT MAY BE A ROYAL SECRET, KATE RECEIVED A TEDDY BEAR FROM A WOMAN IN THE CROWD WHO SAID SHE HEARD KATE DROP THE HINT.

UPSOUND (English) Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton: "It's freezing out here." Member of the public: "Did you say my daughter?" Duchess: "No my, oh my... Ahhh, No, no no no I'm sure, I'm sure. We don't know yet, so... Thank you very much it's very sweet of you."

THE EXCHANGE WAS ENOUGH TO MAKE THE COVER OF BRITISH TABLOID NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY MORNING.

THE PREGNANT DUCHESS WAS GREETED BY HUNDREDS OF WELL-WISHERS AS SHE VISITED A FISHING PORT TOWN, BUT CARRIED ON HER ROYAL ENGAGEMENTS WITHOUT HER HUSBAND WILLIAM.
