Prince Charles Hopes The Next Royal Baby Is A Girl

Prince Charles said that he is hoping for a new princess, when asked about the Duchess of Cambridge’s second pregnancy at a Prince’s Trust event in London.

The Prince of Wales also spoke of his delight at the happy news and is ‘thrilled’ at being a grandfather once again.

‘It’s wonderful to have another one. I'm happy I'm going to be a grandfather again. I'm looking forward to it - but I hope it will be a girl this time,’ he said to Corey Johnson, 36, who had waited in the street for a chance to shake hands with the Prince.


The announcement that Catherine was expecting another child came earlier this week, after she had to cancel her appearance at an event due to severe morning sickness.

When asked how she was doing, William said, ‘She’s feeling OK. It’s been a tricky few days but we’re immensely thrilled. It’s early days but we’re hoping things settle down and she feels a lot better.’


It has also been announced that the Duchess of Cambridge will not attend the Opening Ceremony of the Invictus Games this evening or the Athletics event tomorrow, as she continues to recuperate at home.

Prince George’s sibling is likely to be born in April or May, with Elizabeth reportedly the bookies favourite in the baby name game.
