The bookies might be fairly certain of the imminent arrival of a royal baby girl and Kate Middleton has dropped yet another clue about the sex of her tot by stocking up of bundles of pink paint.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who is due to give birth to her second child in the next few weeks, ordered three sample cans of paint from interior company Annie Sloan.

The order was delivered to the ten-bedroom Anmer Hall on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfork where Kate, Prince William and baby George recently moved.

Three shades of paint were ordered from the designer company including a lilac called Henrietta, a soft pale pink with a hint of brown called Antoinette and a soft aubergine colour called Emile. Each can of paint cost £18 (€24.65).

The order gives further indication that Prince George should expect to welcome a baby sister on April 25.

Bookmakers believe the new baby is likely to be named Alice but other front runners are of course Elizabeth, followed by Charlotte and Victoria.

In the unlikely event that the new baby is a boy, Arthur is believed to be the top choice.

Meanwhile, Kate has begun her maternity leave and is expected to welcome the new baby in St. Mary’s Hospital in London where she gave birth to two-year-old George in July 2013.
