Bookmakers Ladbrokes have slashed the odds of the Duchess of Cambridge having a baby girl after she appeared to let the sex of the future royal slip during a visit to Grimsby yesterday.
The firm were already anticipating Kate and Wills' first child would be a girl, and after the Duchess of Cambridge's slip of the tongue to a well-wisher, the odds were quickly slashed to 1/2 (from 4/5).
That has left the chances of a boy to drift out to 6/4 for those who think Kate could be bluffing.
Elizabeth and Diana remain top of the list of possible names as joint 5/1 favourites (from 8/1). Victoria is currently chalked up as a 7/1 chance with Frances at 8/1.

Kate's dropped the biggest hint yet, and the odds have followed suit. We'll have egg on our face if their newborn turns out to be a boy, but we're confident there will be a new Princess in the Royal family this summer.
