When it comes to the gender of Kate Middleton’s baby, your guesses were as good as flipping a coin. But that was before today, back when we were basically living in a Purge­-like society devoid of rules and regulations.

The Duchess of Cambridge was caught red-handed—or shall we make that blue-handed—at a fabric and wallpaper-design store in London for 45 minutes sifting through their selection of blue prints for what we can only assume to be nursery walls and drapes.

Nothing could be more telling that Kate and Prince William will be having a boy than sticking to centuries-old gender-specific binary norms. If anyone’s going to follow tradition, it’ll be the royal couple.

Of course, like all celebrity news, this runs contrary to a previous report in which Kate almost let slip that she was having a daughter while parading through a street.

Queen Elizabeth II already ordained that regardless if it’s a boy or girl, the child will be eligible to succeed the throne as heir.
