Kate Middleton Says She's Hoping For a Boy at St. Patrick's Day Event

Mar 17 2013 - 2:47pm

Kate Middleton and Prince William got in the St. Patrick's Day spirit when they attended a holiday parade in Aldershot, England, and visited the military barracks. Kate donned the same green Emilia Wickstead coat [1] that she wore for last year's festivities while William wore a ceremonial dress uniform. The duchess pinned sprigs of shamrock to the gathered military personnel, including a large Irish Wolfhound, while William acted as colonel of the regiment during the parade.

The day was not without a small slipup as Kate's black heels got caught on a grate when she walked around the barracks. She laughed off the blunder with William, who offered his hand to his pregnant wife as she wedged out her heel and went about her royal duties. While meeting with guardsmen, Kate reportedly revealed that she is hoping for a boy while Prince William wants a baby girl [2]. The couple have been attending to their work over the past month, but they did manage to squeeze in a day of fun on Friday when they dropped by the Cheltenham Festival.
