THE Duchess of Cambridge has been advised that interest in her forthcoming baby is hovering around zero.
The baby, due sometime next month or whenever, will be greeted by the public with a yawn and reaching for the remote, Kate has been informed.
A Palace insider said: “Kate has kept bringing up the fact that she’s pregnant in conversations with the public and the media only for them to politely change the subject.
“It remains a universal law that, while everyone’s ready to discuss preparations and have the name conversation during the first pregnancy, there is no appetite to do the same thing again two years later.
“This baby will never be King. At best we’re looking at a Prince Harry, at worst a Prince Andrew.
“Nobody’s going to be sending any presents for that.”
The Duchess told an onlooker at a public engagement: “Yes, isn’t it exciting? And actually it’s going to be a girl, which I haven’t told anybody before, and I’m calling her Carol after my mum.
“Did anyone hear that? Hello? Is anybody listening to me?”
