Is This Proof That Kate Middleton Is Expecting A Baby Boy?

Is This Proof That Kate Middleton Is Expecting A Baby Boy?

Has Duchess Kate been trying to get something off her chest through the medium of fashion? We'll let you decide...

Kate Middleton may have performed her last royal duty before heading off on maternity leave but we're still buzzing around her impending birth.

While office sweepstakes reign supreme up and down the land speculating the baby's gender, date and weight, we've got our own super-legit (ahem) theory on how to analyse whether the Duchess is expecting a boy or a girl on her due date, which is now said to be on April 25th...

Considering fashion is what we do best, we've taken a look back at all of Kate's on-point maternity looks to determine whether the nursery in her and Prince William's manor house will be decorated in pink or blue, by looking at how many of the Duchess's outfits have fallen into the traditional baby colour territory. 

Ok, so it's not scientific and you could argue that a gender can't be defined by it's stereotypical colour but what started out as a spot of fun at InStyle HQ has turned out some pretty surprising results. Mainly due to the fact that Kate has worn a LOT of pink and blue over the last few months. 

So, what's it going to be? A boy or a girl? Take a look at our extensive research below and see what you think...

Blue
In one of her first official royal engagements after announcing her pregnancy, Kate looked beyond amazing in this rather racy split front Jenny Packham gown in BABY BLUE which she wore to attend the Wildlife Photographer of The Year Awards at the Natural History Museum in London.

Pink
On a tour to the USA with Prince William on her arm, Kate (complete with a blossoming baby bump) chose to don this striking hot pink Mulberry coat as she toured New York City, evening the blue-to-pink score...

Blue
Still Stateside, Kate then switched up her bright fuchsia coat in favour of this pale blue number complete with pearly buttons and a black lapel.

Pink
Reworking a satin Alexander McQueen coat, it certainly looked as if Kate had pink on the mind...

Blue
Visiting the Bridgewater pottery factory in Stoke on Trent, Kate opted for this gorgeously cut Max Mara coat in a soft cobalt hue. That's Blue - 3, Pink - 2...

Pink
Ok, so it might be a deep, deep magenta but this still counts as 'pink' in our eyes...

Blue
Is it just us or is the Duchess really into her sky blue coats right now? Could this be subliminal message...? 

Pink
We know Kate is a huge fashion recycler but rocking this seriously statement Mulberry coat for a second time in just a couple of months can't possibly be an accident. Amiright?

Blue
Giving the pastel hues a break in this chic Beulah coat and dress combo which she effortlessly paired with a co-ordinating hat, shoes and clutch bag. You may see navy but break it down and what do you get? BLUE. 

Err, a bit of both...
It may be a blue dress but that pink embroidered trim is a major spanner in the works. Are you toying with us, Kate?

So, there you have it. If our totally 100% scientific findings are anything to go by, the verdict is that Kate will welcome a baby BOY come the 25th of April, with a ratio of 5 and a half (sort of) to 4 and a half.

If that's not definitive proof, we don't know what is...
