Fans Think Kate Middleton Is Dropping Hints About Baby’s Gender With Latest Outfit Choice

The royal family officially announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were expecting their third child back in early September 2017.

The new baby boy or girl will join Prince George and Princess Charlotte when he or she finally makes their arrival sometime in 2018.

According to Vanity Fair, Kate’s last appearance prior to the pregnancy announcement was just a few days before, on August 30, 2017.

At that time, she accompanied her husband Prince William and her brother-in-law Prince Harry on a tour of the Princess Diana garden at Kensington Palace in advance of the 20th anniversary of her late mother-in-law’s death.

Pregnant Kate remained out of the public eye in the nearly six weeks since the announcement, largely due to her severe morning sickness caused by hyperemesis gravidarum.

The Duchess suffered from the same condition during her first two pregnancies. Sadly, the debilitating symptoms caused her to miss dropping off Prince George on his first day of school with Prince William.

The public got its first glimpse of the officially pregnant Kate during her appearance at a Buckingham Palace reception in honor of World Mental Health Day on October 10, 2017.

According to PEOPLE, an aide told reporters, “The Duchess’ condition is improving but she is still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. She is delighted to be able to be here tonight.”

The reception was in honor of those working in the mental health field and with Heads Together, a campaign founded by the three royals.

Kate (alongside Prince William and Prince Harry) met with guests, many of whom have worked in the mental health sector for years, according to Kensington Palace.

Kate wore a light blue Temperley London dress, which hugged her very small baby bump.

The relatively tiny size of the Duchess’ belly seems to suggest that the royals may have needed to announce the pregnancy prior to Kate reaching 12 weeks, due to her severe morning sickness.

It didn’t escape anyone’s notice that the dress Kate chose for her first appearance since the pregnancy news was blue. Many believe this was a purposeful hint that the baby is a boy.

Express points out that parents typically find out the sex of an unborn baby at the second scan, between 16 and 20 weeks, so it’s possible the Duchess is that far along and that they do know the baby’s sex.

In a speech earlier that day, Prince William revealed that it was Kate who was the one to come up with the idea for Heads Together.

“It was Catherine who first realized that all three of us were working on mental health in our individual areas of focus,” Prince William said, according to Hello! Magazine. “She had seen that at the core of adult issues like addiction and family breakdown, unresolved childhood mental health issues were often part of the problem.”

Whether Kate’s dress had a deeper meaning or was simply a pretty blue gown, it’s so important to acknowledge the amazing work that the three royals are doing in the mental health sector.
