Royal Baby Birth: Fans Hope Duchess Kate Delivers a Girl

Insiders insist William and Kate don't know if the baby is a boy or girl.

“People love George but let’s face it, there’s nothing like a princess in a dress,” said ABC News’ royal contributor Victoria Murphy. "I think if it’s a girl it’s a much bigger story.”

In London, the great Kate wait is in full swing.

The barriers have been put up at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital, where the Duchess of Cambridge is expected to soon welcome her second child and the fourth-in-line to the British throne. Media pens were installed Thursday outside the hospital and the Palace has marked off the spots for major media organizations.

Royal insiders insist William and Kate do not know if the baby is a girl or a boy.

The bookies in London have slashed the odds that the new royal sibling will be a girl called Alice at 5-4. Elizabeth and Charlotte are second at 6-1. Victoria and the sentimental favorite Diana, in memory of the baby’s late grandmother, come in at 14-1. The name Alexandra has dropped to 16-1
