The royal baby is a girl!
Or at least that's what Prince Charles is hoping he hears when Kate Middleton finally gives birth.
The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly a week overdue, but the royal granddaddy isn't as concerned with that as he is with finding out if he'll be busting out blue or pink balloons.
Prince Charles was at Windsor Castle celebrating the 1st Batallion Welsh Guards' centennial on Thursday when he publicly brought up his preference for a girl.

Sources say he told one veteran:
"We're hoping for a granddaughter!"
We're dying to know the other royals he's referring to when he says "we," but whoever they are, they don't seem the slightest bit concerned that Princess Kate is so far past her rumored due date.
The expecting mother was out and about going shopping and bringing Prince George to his swimming lessons this week!
Guess Prince William started his paternity leave early so he could twiddle his thumbs waiting for his wife to pop.
