Prince William appears to drop HUGE hint about sex of unborn baby

His third child is due this month

Prince William appears to have dropped a hint that his third child with wife Kate is a boy.

He revealed that he wants to name the baby after Aston villa footballer Jack Grealish, after watching him score a spectacular goal.

William is an Aston Villa fan, in case you didn't already know, and watched his team play at Villa Park on Tuesday night.

According to the Mirror, the Duke of Cambridge told fans after the match: "I'm going to insist the baby is called Jack." He then apparently paused, before adding: "Or Jackie!"

Nice save, your Royal Highness!

Meanwhile, it was confirmed earlier this week that the Duchess of Cambridge is planning to give birth to her third child at the Lindo Wing.

Parking restrictions have gone up outside St. Mary's Hospital in London, where Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their son George and daughter Charlotte.

According to Sky News, barriers have also been erected outside the private maternity ward.

Kensington Palace previously confirmed that Kate's due date is April, but an exact date has never been publicly confirmed.

The parking restrictions and barriers have led many to believe the baby could be due any day now.

It's not that surprising Kate and William would choose the Lindo Wing for their third child, having seen their first two children delivered there, but the parking restrictions and barriers seem to end rumours Kate had been considering a home birth.

According to reports, Kate will once again be cared for by royal doctors Guy Thorpe-Beeston and Alan Farthing.

Mr Thorpe-Beeston is surgeon-gynaecologist to the royal household, while Mr Farthing is the Queen’s surgeon-gynaecologist.

Prince George, four, was delivered at the Lindo Wing on July 22, 2013, while Princess Charlotte, two, was born at the private maternity ward on May 2, 2015.

Prince William himself was born at St. Mary's on June 21, 1982, while brother Prince Harry was also born at the Lindo Wing on September 15, 1984.

The Lingo Wing prides itself on offering hotel services to all patients.

Modern hospital rooms come with en suites, satellite TV, a choice of daily newspapers in the morning, and special meals made to order. There's also an afternoon tea service and wine list.

According to The Telegraph, rooms cost a minimum of £5,215 per night.

Kate and William have chosen not to find out the sex of their baby before its birth.

As happened with George and Charlotte, the first we'll hear about the royal baby's arrival is an announcement from Kensington Palace that Kate has gone into labour.

The baby's birth will likely be announced via press release and social media, as well as through the old tradition of an easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.

The baby will be fifth-in-line to the throne, after granddad Prince Charles, dad Prince William, big brother Prince George and big sister Princess Charlotte.

It means Prince Harry will be pushed down to sixth.

Kate went on maternity leave in March, after completing a final string of engagements.
