Is It Really a Girl? Pink-themed Baby Shower Set for Second Royal Baby
On Sept. 8, 2014, the news of Kate Middleton’s, Duchess of Cambridge, second pregnancy has spread far and wide. And now, rumors of a princess on the way have made the day of every member of the royal family.
According to Life & Style magazine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed to their family and close friends that they're expecting a baby girl. Reportedly thrilled of having a daughter after their son Prince George, the couple is said to be planning of naming their baby after the late Princess Diana, Prince William’s mother.
The Duchess’ sister, Pippa Middleton, showed her excitement for possibly having a niece by throwing a pink-themed baby shower before her sister and her husband left for their three-day visit to New York City.
“There were pink-iced cupcakes, pink cocktails, and a huge white cake. Pink sponge [cake] and strawberry filling,” revealed the source to Star Magazine.
Prince William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly “beaming” over the idea of having a great-granddaughter coming this spring. An insider claims that “[s]he loves the idea of William and Kate having a boy and a girl.”
According to the International Business Times, after the rumors of her having a daughter came up, the duchess has started checking out two nurseries for her new baby — one in family’s country home, Anmer Hall, in Norforlk, England and another in their Kensington Palace apartment in London. Reportedly, neither of the two rooms will be having a pink color scheme.
“Kate wants more neutral palates like creams and beiges. She’s earmarked rooms they’ll turn into the new baby’s nurseries,” shares the insider.
The new royal baby is expected to be born sometime in April 2015 and is said to be born at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, where Prince George was also born back in 2012.
