The Queen has let slip that she is as impatient as everyone else about the royal baby.

Her comments came on a visit to Cumbria, when a local schoolgirl asked whether she wanted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby to be a boy or a girl.

The BBC's Royal Correspondent Nicholas Witchell reports.
