Kensington Palace is refuting a recent report claiming that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be raising their unborn child in a manner that avoids gender stereotyping.
According to Vanity Fair, a source claimed, “Meghan has been talking to some of her friends about the birth and how she and Harry plan to raise their baby. Her exact word was fluid. She said they plan to raise their child with a fluid approach to gender and they won’t be imposing any stereotypes.”
However, a royal rep is pouring cold water on the reports that the next little royal will be gender fluid.
“This story is totally false,” declared a Kensington Palace spokesperson in a statement, reports The Sun.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child in the spring, and while rumours are swirling that they couple is expecting a boy, the gender of the baby is not yet known.
However, photos from Duchess Meghan’s recent baby shower in new York City showed guests being served pastel pink treats, suggesting she was expecting a girl.
Meanwhile, a conflicting report claimed that she told friends she was having a boy, a theory bolstered by photos of some guests pictured with gifts wrapped in blue paper.
“The trip is a lovely chance to catch up with friends and spend time in a city she loves,” a source told Bazaar.com of the baby shower. “This will be the last time a lot of them will see Meg until after the baby is born so it’s nice to share precious moments.”
