One of the most controversial royals, Kate Middleton never failed to make headlines whenever she is in public or inside the walls of Kensington Palace. It has been months of speculation that the Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly pregnant and had a miscarriage days before she celebrated Prince George's first birthday.
The pregnancy rumours started when Kate's friend, Jessica Hay, claimed that she is pregnant with her second child, but Kensington Palace was quick to announce that Hay and Middleton are no longer in contact and her claims have no basis. But the rumours did not stop there as numerous reports claimed Kate had gone through a miscarriage based on the pictures she had during her public appearances. In addition, pictures of her looking bloated and pale were all over the Internet and tabloid covers.
Here are some fast facts that Kate Middleton is not pregnant and did not suffer from miscarriage.
Scheduled to take her first solo trip, without husband Prince William, the brunette royal is going to Malta in Sept. to represent Queen Elizabeth to join the 50th anniversary of the country celebrating its independence from UK. The Duchess is flying to Malta on Sept. 20 and will stay there for two days, according to Kensington Palace. Malta holds a special place in the Queen's heart and Kate was tasked to represent her after the Duchess' month-long vacation in Anmer Hall.
Together with Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to attend Charles Gilkes's Italian wedding with PR fiancée Anneke von Trotha Taylor. Famous for their elaborate parties, Charles is an Eton alum and enjoyed a brief romance with Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton.
"The [Cambridges] are really looking forward to it and William and Kate are planning to leave Prince George with Kate's parents so they can go and have a good time," a royal insider told Vanity Fair.
While taking their grand vacation in the countryside, the Cambridges are scheduled to visit Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at Balmoral Castle in Scotland slamming the alleged war between the Duchess and the Queen. Kate and William will also visit Prince George grandfather and step-grandmother, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, in their Highland home in Gloucestershire.
With so many upcoming trips, the Duchess of Cambridge is definitely not pregnant and not grieving from her alleged miscarriage.
