“The big talk in palace secrets is that Kate is already pregnant – and some of her closest confidantes are even saying she’s having twins,” says a source close to the duchess.
“Apparently her bump is already more?pronounced, leading many to believe there’s a double royal surprise coming our way, so it’s incredibly exciting.”
As rumours abound that William and Kate will soon add to their family, a UK bookmaker has even slashed the odds on the royal family issuing confirmation of the happy news.
“No-one is surprised that she’s pregnant so soon after Louis. She made it clear that she wanted to be pregnant by the middle of the year, so she and Wills have clearly been trying,” says the royal source.
Meanwhile, Kate has heightened speculation that she could be pregnant by holding a series of clutch bags in front of her midriff, touching her stomach during recent outings and sporting a noticeably wider smile than usual while attending St Patrick’s Day celebrations with William.
Then, while visiting a London children’s centre last week, Kate talked to other parents and, perhaps significantly, asked those with twins about their experiences and what it was like.
