Updated: Is Kate Middleton pregnant with another royal baby?
Update: Well she might not have drank a lot of wine, but Kate did partake in a bit during their visit to the winery. Not pregnant! She then hopped on a "Shotover" boat - which travels at over 50mph. Not something you'd do with a bun in the oven. The woman who was speaking with William insisted the following day that the Duke didn't say "soon," but said "some time." And finally, Kate has reportedly said recently that she plans to up her royal engagements once they return from the tour, which indicates there's no brother or sister for George in the too near future.
Okay, okay, we get it! No baby yet!!
Everyone stop everything you're doing. We know we've been covering every step of the royal tour so far, but while Kate's style is always worth talking about, so is this: could the Duchess be pregnant with another royal baby?!
Yesterday, Prince William was chatting with Cynthia Reed who had made a shawl for Prince George, and he told her, "You might have to make another one soon!" And this one comment sent the papers -- and hearts around the world -- flurrying at the idea of another royal bundle. Both William and Kate have said that they want more than one child, and that they'd like them to be close in age like they both are with their own siblings.
Said Ms. Reed, "The way William said it was like he was dropping a hint, letting me in on a secret." Anyone else freaking out here?!
On St. Patrick's Day, William was quoted saying in regards to another baby: "maybe one day -- one is enough for now," and Kate had a sip of sherry to celebrate the holiday. But notably on one of their first nights in New Zealand, Kate and William both toasted the Queen's new portrait with water. Needless to say, all eyes are going to be on Kate later this evening (Sunday afternoon in New Zealand) as the royal couple goes for a wine tasting. Will Kate drink a glass or two to quiet the media buzz? Or will she let the rumors intensify that George will soon be a big brother, by refusing the wine?
In our non-expert, seriously-just-speculating opinion, we're pretty sure that Kate is not pregnant right now. When you think about how much pain she was in during her first trimester with George, it just doesn't seem likely she'd want to risk being sick while on tour. BUT this little tidbit from William could mean the next baby will be on the way very very soon.
