Kate Middleton's Baby Name Plans Take an Unexpected Turn

Kate Middleton

There has been plenty of speculation over the sex of her second child pretty much since the day her pregnancy was announced, but according to a new report in OK! magazine, Kate Middleton IS having a baby girl. It was supposedly confirmed by an ultrasound pic "released by the Palace." (Let's take that one with a grain of salt for now.)


Whether or not OK! indeed has some sort of inside information is definitely debatable, though the general consensus these days does seem to be that Kate and Prince William will be giving Prince George a baby sister as opposed to a brother.

And of course, the burning question on all of our minds is what they will choose to name the baby, and whether or not the child's name will honor Princess Diana in some way.

Well? If OK! has their story straight, it looks like we're in luck. Supposedly Kate and Wills are planning on calling the baby Diana, and even Queen Elizabeth isn't fighting them on it anymore.

(Huh? We never thought she'd let this one fly!)

A "Palace insider" reportedly said, "She [Queen E.] told him that while she knows she had her issues with Diana in the past, she couldn't deny that she was an amazing mother."

And apparently that's why she gave Wills her blessing to go ahead and pass on the name to his daughter? Hmm. As much as we'd love to believe that the Queen cares more about Prince William and Kate's happiness than royal tradition, come on, do you really think that's something she's willing to let her grandson monkey with, especially without making a big stink about it?

Maybe. Maybe not. But let's go ahead and assume for one second that this report is true, and the whole royal crew is truly on board with the latest addition to the family being named Diana. Um, who else is having a hard time holding back happy tears over the thought of her legacy being honored in such a perfectly fitting way?

OMG. We probably shouldn't get our hopes up just yet, but man, we're going to be on major pins and needles as soon as Kate shows up at the hospital to deliver this little angel!

Are you hoping that the baby will be named Diana if it's a girl?
