Kate Middleton Pregnancy Rumors Continue
Posted 11.16.11 by Mandy
She's only been married for a few months, but the Duchess of Cambridge can't absently rest her hand on her waist or decline a snack without the press clamoring about the eminent arrival of a new successor to the throne. In Touch Weekly is the latest publication to make the big announcement, stating that a "royal source" revealed that the Duchess is six weeks pregnant.
Granted, when William and Kate do get pregnant they will probably wait several weeks to make the official announcement, and people close to the couple would know long before. Also, if every pregnancy rumor were true, the couple would already have quite a brood. Then again, maybe no one told them that the souvenir condoms were only a novelty item and not suitable for contraception.
The inside information given to In Touch doesn't stop with news that Kate is preggers, there was also a tidbit about the possible names for the boy or girl (or twins!) on the way.
Edward, Philip and Michael are likely choices for a boy, or Alice or Rose for a girl.
This must be a source very close to the couple indeed. Less personal information was also given, specifically the new digs being readied for the bundle of joy. Apparently three nurseries are in the works. One is reportedly at Nottingham Cottage, one at the couple's home in Wales, and one at Kensington Palace; right next door to the aforementioned cottage.
Unfortunately for Kate, if the rumor is true, she'll be spending a big chunk of the pregnancy alone. Prince William will be deployed to the Falkland Islands early next year, meaning Kate would be in her second trimester with her husband half way around the world. Of course the insider also knew why the couple decided to have a baby so quickly.
Queen Elizabeth II, in particular, has been dropping so many hints about wanting a great-grandchild — and an heir to the throne — that Kate feared she wouldn’t be able to face her without baby news.
What is Harry? Chopped liver? There are plenty of people in line for the throne and it seems like the couple has plenty of time to produce a future king or queen. But who knows? Maybe this time the rumors are true.
