William and Kate Don't Know the Sex of the Baby!

News & Gossip June 20, 2013

For a long time it was believed that William and Kate were expecting a baby girl, a rumour which was apparently started by close friends of the couple at a barbecue. However this week as plans for the birth were announced by royal officials, it was revealed William and Kate have decided not to find out the sex of the baby. Kate will give birth in the same private suite at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, where Princess Diana had both William and Harry. Palace officials have asked for "an appropriate degree of sensitivity" regarding the birth, however adding, "The birth was a very personal matter for the duke and duchess, but they also know it's a time to celebrate and many will want to share in their joy."

Chloe Green's third shoe collection for Summer 13 has hit Selfridges and it's proving to be yet another smash hit for the Topshop heiress, who already boasts Nicole Scherzinger, Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian as fans of her stylish shoe line. Inspired by dreamy summer days and hot summer nights, the collection sees trainers added to the line in both casual and more glamorous styles, alongside her famous high heel platforms and new season colour block wedges.

While Chloe seems to have cracked the secret to success, there's still one celebrity she has designs on, namely The Duchess of Cambridge. Chloe told the Mail Online, "Now I am focusing on a very different kind of customer. Who wouldn't want to dress the Duchess of Cambridge? It would be nice for an English brand to dress someone so British. Plus they are also a more reasonable height." Shop Chloe's fab new collection at Selfridges below.
