Royal 'GenderGate' took a dramatic twist today after it emerged that the Duchess of Cambridge might not have revealed the sex of her unborn baby.
If you recall, the country went wild (well, OK, we did) when a well-wisher told the nation the news we (OK, us) had all been waiting for: the gender of the future king or queen.
Accepting a soft toy from Diana Burton during a visit to Grimsby, Kate was alleged to have said: "Thank you, I will take that for my d..." before hastily stopping herself.
Sandra Cook, 67, who was standing next to Diana, said she could hardly believe her ears and told blushing Kate: "You were going to say 'daughter', weren't you?"
She added: "Kate replied, 'No... we don't know'.
"Then I said, 'Oh I think you do' to which she said, 'We're not telling'." Well, intrigued upon intrigue, for new footage has emerged which appears to show Kate never said the "d word".
The mobile phone footage was captured by bystander Lisa Hewson, 32, who was also standing next to Diana outside the National Fishing Heritage Centre.
In the clip, posted on YouTube, Diana hands over the teddy bear and says: "Here you go, Kate, for the baby."
The Duchess accepts the toy and appears to say: "Oh is this for us? Thank you so much, that's very sweet of you."
Lisa, from Healing in Lincolnshire, told the Grimsby Telegraph: "I am sure the lady genuinely thought she heard what she said she did, and I don't want to make her look bad.
"She might look at [the video] and think 'Oh my god, I've got it wrong'.
"It was such a mad five minutes. We were all so excited, it would have been easy to get caught up in the moment."
