Prince William drops huge hint over the gender of the third royal baby

The Duke of Cambridge has dropped a big hint that he and his wife Kate Middleton are expecting a baby boy as the country awaits the arrival of royal baby number three.

Aston Villa fan Prince William said he wants to name his third child after Jack Grealish, after watching the star score a spectacular late winner for his side.

William dropped the big hint he and the duchess are expecting a boy after cheering on his team at Villa Park earlier this week, the Mirror reports.

The Prince was snapped celebrating 22-year-old Grealish’s dramatic volley against Cardiff City with former player John Carew on Tuesday night.

After the crunch Championship game, he appeared to let slip the sex of his third child, who is due in the next few weeks.

He told fans: “I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack,” before adding after a pause “… or Jackie”.

He made the light-hearted comment after watching Grealish score the stunning 85th minute winner against his team’s promotion rivals.
