Kensington Palace broke their silence when they finally issued a statement on a false story about The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Vanity Fair recently reported that the Duke and Duchess plan to raise their baby gender fluid. Kensington Palace said this is “totally false.”
A source told Katie Nicholl, from Vanity Fair, that “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.”
She added that there could be “multiple interpretations” to what the Duchess meant by “fluid.”
Kensington Palace cleared that question up once and for all. A spokesperson from the palace Hello! that “this story is totally false.”
Last December Kensington Palace also commented on a false story about the Duchess. Buckingham Palace commented on a story from The Sun alleging that Kate “slapped down” Meghan and told her “not to berate” members of Kate’s team at Kensington Palace. Buckingham Palace told The Mirror said: “This never happened.”
This was during the height of the feud between the Cambridge-Sussex Duchess feud stories. A royal source later told ELLE.com that there was never a real war between them happening.
“The stories of the two duchesses having a major ongoing feud are just overblown. They have enormous respect for each other and are both devoted to representing Her Majesty in the humanitarian and charitable work they do,” the source said.
The Duchess of Sussex is set to have her first child at the end of April or early May. Despite some reports saying that the baby is a boy, they are just guesses.
The gender of the baby will not be revealed until it is born.
This is royal precedent, and ELLE.com says sources close to the Harry and Meghan that although the couple has found out the sex of the baby, they choose to keep it a secret from the public.
