According to Royal writer Andrew Morton, the late Princess Diana told him that the Prince of Wales was rather 'disappointed' because he was hoping the couple would welcome a baby girl after William.
In his book, Diana: Her True Story, Mr Morton claims that Diana told him:“I knew Harry was going to be a boy because I saw on the scan.
“Charles always wanted a girl. He wanted two children, and he wanted a girl. I knew Harry was a boy, and I didn’t tell him.
“His first comment was: ‘Oh God, it’s a boy,’
“The second comment: ‘And he’s even got red hair’.”
She continued to discuss in detail how Charles later went on to express his disappointment again at Harry’s christening.
He told Diana’s mother: "'We were so disappointed – we thought it would be a girl’.
“Mummy snapped his head off, saying: ‘You should realise how lucky you are to have a child that’s normal’.”
Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle are expected to welcome their first child any day now.
