Rumor has it that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is expecting a boy with Prince William this summer, and sources say it's uncle-to-be Prince Harry that's been spilling the news.

"Harry has been telling everyone Wills and Kate are having a boy and how thrilled he is at the prospect of having a little nephew," a source told the Daily Mirror Monday. "He said the whole family were excited about it. Apparently Kate has always wanted a boy."

While the royal couple has made no official statement about the sex of their first-born child, bookies at the English firm Ladbrokes said the odds are now 1/3 for a girl and 5/2 for a boy.

"A huge gamble is now developing on the Royal Baby to be the future King," Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told the Mirror. "Punters are incredibly excited by the latest news and are rushing to put their money on a boy."

Though the gender of the baby may slip before its due date in July, the name is sure to be kept top secret.

"They're really working hard on baby names now and think they have it sorted," the source said. "The close inner circle all know that it's a boy and they're busily buying gifts with a boy theme. There will be an awful lot of blue in their house."

Speculation swirled in March that Middleton was pregnant with a girl after she had a slip-of-the-tongue at an appearance in Grimsby. The Duchess was heard almost saying "daughter" as she thanked a woman for a teddy bear gift.

"Thank you I will take that for my d…for my baby," Middleton reportedly told the woman according to witness, 67-year-old Grimsby resident, Sandra Cook.

"When she shook hands with me I said, 'You nearly slipped up there, you were going to say daughter, weren't you?'" Cook told The Sun. She said Middleton replied stating the couple didn’t yet know the sex of the baby and were not planning on revealing the gender.
