Kate Middleton pregnant? Baby rumors abound
Kate Middleton pregnant? Indeed, she is!
Kate Middleton is pregnant, an exclusive In Touch magazine article reports. According to a royal source, Prince William‘s newly wedded wife has been with child for at least six weeks. If true, the birth would produce Queen Elizabeth‘s first great-grandchild and a potential heir to the British throne.
Preparations for the baby’s arrival are already in full swing. Middleton is said to be preparing nurseries in Nottingham Cottage, Kensington Palace and another in Wales. The couple hasn’t yet picked a name, though they are reportedly giving it a great deal of thought. Choices for a boy include Edward, Philip and Michael, while Alice and Rose are being considered in the case of a girl.
And it’s a girl for which William is hoping, apparently. The palace insider claims William is “very much his mother’s son,” referring to the late Princess Diana. His father, Prince Charles of Wales, reportedly “would like a granddaughter.” The sex of the child would not factor in its eligibility for the crown, as the Commonwealth moved last month to alter succession rules that previously favored the royal family’s first born son.
William and Kate were married to much pomp and circumstance in April. They have yet to comment on the validity of the pregnancy rumors.
