Is Kate Middleton pregnant? Despite having given birth to her daughter just a little over a year ago, there are rumors claiming that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting another child with Prince William. Now, a new report claims that the royal is pregnant and that she will allegedly be giving birth during the holiday season.
A report from Life & Style claims that the Duchess is expecting and that she is about to give birth on Christmas.
“It’s official! She is due on Christmas. Kate and William are overjoyed,” said a source to the magazine. The insider said that the parents of Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 14 months, recently told Queen Elizabeth about the exciting news, and the source said that it was “a fabulous present” for the monarch’s 90th birthday this year.
The insider adds that the Duke and the Duchess allegedly don’t mind if their third child is a boy or a girl as they already have one of each, and that they just want their next child to be healthy.
The Duke and Duchess are said to be expanding their family as they want their children to be very close in age “so they can grow up as a close-knit family.” The insider adds that the couple hopes that their children will help each other out as they become full-time working members of the family.
“It is very important to William and Kate that, when George becomes king someday, he has the support of his siblings. They don’t want him to be isolated,” said the source. The two-year-old prince is third in line to the throne.
The royal palace has yet to comment on the report. However, Gossip Cop slammed the rumors, saying that Life & Style’s report is completely false. The website points out that though the magazine noted how the 34-year-old has a visible “baby bump,” the site says that all this is old news as the same publication has published four nearly identical “pregnant” articles over the last year, which includes a cover story back in April claiming that the Duchess was having twins.
A royal insider told Gossip Cop that the reports are “not true” and any valid announcement would come from the palace.
