The Duchess of Cambridge said that she doesn’t know the sex of her first child — but she hopes it’s a boy.

Her husband Prince William,however,would prefer a girl.

The former Kate Middleton,who is five months pregnant,made the revelation to a soldier at a St. Patrick’s Day ceremony honoring the Irish Guards.

“I asked her ‘do you know if it’s a girl or boy?’ and she said ‘not yet,'” said Guardsman Lee Wheeler.

“She said ‘I’d like to have a boy and William would like a girl.'”

Wheeler said the duchess told him the couple had not settled on names for the baby,who will be third in line to the British throne.

The duchess wore a green dress coat and a shamrock lapel pin as she presented sprigs of shamrock to soldiers in the annual ceremony at a barracks in Aldershot,southern England. She also pinned a spring on the collar of the regiment’s mascot,an Irish wolfhound named Domhnall.

Kate suffered a minor mishap when one of her high heels became briefly stuck in a drainage grille. The duchess leaned on her husband as she wrenched it loose.

The royal St. Patrick’s Day tradition was started by Queen Alexandra,the wife of King Edward VII,in 1901.
