The 31-year-old Duchess was given a a white teddy bear by a local, Diane Burton during her trip up North yesterday. “Thank you, I’ll take that for my d–” Middlers replied, cutting herself off mid-sentence.
Now, that’s been taken as she was going to say ‘daughter’ but she could have meant ‘dustbin’, ‘dog’ or ‘dogsbody’- sorry, Royal well-wishers but the chances of your stuffed gifts actually ending up in the heir to the throne’s golden basinet are less than zero.
I expect they ship them all off to the nearest childrens’ hospital after fumigating them for flu germs and the like.
When a member of the Pippas asked the royal if she was about to say “daughter,” she smiled and replied coyly, “We’re not telling.”
Onlooker and busybody Sandra Cook told journos: “I said to her: ‘You were going to say daughter weren’t you?’ and she said, ‘No, we don’t know.’ I said, ‘Oh, I think you do’, to which she said: ‘We’re not telling.’”
Meanwhile, the baby was doing what babies do in utero: “I asked [Middleton] if [the baby] has been moving or kicking,” onlooker Bobbie Brown recalled. “She said: ‘Yes, it is. Very much so.’”
Thank f-ck for that. I’d be very worried about the quality of her doctors if it wasn’t.
