Duchess of Cambridge pregnant: Did the Queen just REVEAL the gender of new royal baby?
Earlier today the Queen opened the new Queensferry Crossing in Scotland wearing head-to-toe blue.
She dazzled in a coordinated ensemble as she admired the UK’s tallest bridge which spans over the Forth.
The monarch’s appearance came as it was announced the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with Her Majesty’s fourth great-grandchild.
While the gender of the baby has not yet been announced, the 91-year-old seems to have given a very public hint that she would like it to be a boy.
The Queen chose a matching hat and coat in the same shade of baby blue.
She tied the outfit together with black shoes, handbag and gloves.
To soften the look, she sported floral detailing on her hat, as well as a silver brooch and trademark pearls.
Her colourful outfit outshone that of Nicola Sturgeon.
The First Minister of Scotland played it safe in monochrome.
Her Majesty was accompanied to the bridge opening with her husband Prince Philip.
The royal family is said to be delighted with the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a new sibling for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
A palace statement read: “Their royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child.
“The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
Whether or not blue really does mean a boy, the monarch is certainly a fan of a statement shade.
In July she wore yellow to open the new headquarters of the Metropolitan Police.
Earlier that same month she chose a deep purple to welcome the King and Queen of Spain on a State visit.
