It’s been almost six months since Prince George of Cambridge has been born, and perhaps his mum and dad would like to give him a little brother or sister already. Rumours abound that Prince William and wife Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, are already expecting another royal baby.
According to gossip magazine Star, Kate, 32, is pregnant again.
“It’s official, Kate’s pregnant again!” the headline of the latest issue of the magazine reads.
But of course, it’s not official. Until there’s an official word from the palace or from Kate and William themselves, Kate’s alleged pregnancy condition remains a rumours.
The mag quotes sources that claimed William told friends at a palace Christmas party that Kate is enceinte.
Unlike her first pregnancy with George, Kate apparently hasn’t been experiencing any morning sickness yet. It can be remembered that Kate was hospitalised in December 2012 after suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a pregnancy complication. It was then that the palace was forced to announce that the Duchess was pregnant.
But her morning sickness, if she is indeed pregnant, isn’t nearly as bad as the first time. This could mean that there would be no telling signs of her new condition for a while, and the palace wouldn’t be forced to announce anything significant soon.
Meanwhile, the doctor who delivered George has received knighthood. Dr Marcus Setchell, Queen Elizabeth II’s gynaecologist, delayed his retirement to become Kate’s personal physician during her pregnancy, Entertainment Wise reported. He oversaw the delivery of the future king with Dr Alan Farthing in July.
And for his service, he has now become a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order after he was named as one of the honourees.
