(ROUGH CUT: NO REPORTER NARRATION) Gary Goldsmith, the uncle of Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, says he has a "gut feeling" the eagerly awaited royal baby will be a girl. Prince William and his wife Catherine, who is popularly known as Kate, are expecting their first child in mid-July who, upon entering the world, will become third in line to the British throne. Gary Goldsmith said on Wednesday (July 17) he hoped the baby would be a girl so that her birth would be a "first in history." "I think it is a girl, but nobody knows for sure. I'd like it to be girl, because it will be a first in history." If Prince William and Kate have a daughter she will officially hold the title of princess, updating rules introduced almost a century ago. Goldsmith said nobody knew the gender of the baby, but that there were many girls on the Middleton side of the family. "It is a gut feeling, but on my side of the family there were lots of girls." He added: "For any family having a baby it will be amazing, and this is going to be a very special baby." Goldmsith is the brother of Carole Middleton. Palace officials have also said that the couple does not know the sex of the baby, despite media speculation a few months ago they knew they were expecting a girl.
