Prince Harry is so excited about becoming an uncle he has been telling his friends he's expecting a nephew, according to British reports.

Bookies have offered odds of 1/3 on the Duchess of Cambridge having a girl, and 5/2 for a boy, even though Kate and William have made no official announcement about the baby, reported the Daily Mail.

''Harry has been telling everyone Wills and Kate are having a boy and how thrilled he is at the prospect of having a little nephew,'' a source told the Daily Mail.

''He said the whole family were excited about it. Apparently Kate has always wanted a boy. They're really working hard on baby names now and think they have it sorted.''

Princess Eugenie had also been telling friends the baby, due in June, was going to be a boy.

In March the Duchess was thought to have the word ''daughter'' on the tip of her tongue while working a crowd in the northern English town of Grimsby.

She was being given a teddy bear as a gift from a well-wisher when she nearly said the d-word.

"Thank you, I'll take that for my d...", she said before going any further.

When the fan asked if she was about to say daughter, she just said: "We're not telling."

A few days later she revealed she had bought a light blue pram. What does it all mean? We'll know in July.
