LONDON: The rumour mill is abuzz with reports that everyone’s favourite duchess, Kate Middleton is expecting her first child with husband Prince William.

The couple, who tied the knot on April 29 last year, has reportedly been trying to conceive for some time and is overjoyed over their baby news.

“Friends say Kate is convinced it’s happened, and while she and William are keeping the news close to the vest, they’re delirious with joy,” quoted a source as saying. The unconfirmed reports have not been verified by the Royal Family in Britain, but speculation has been surrounding the duchess wanting to get pregnant for some time now.

“A woman can always tell when the earliest signs appear, and it’s believed that a passionate night together at their rented country house on an estate in Wales, just after the end of the London Olympics, did the trick,” added the source.

A formal announcement is expected

“It would be formally (announced) through the palace press office, but only after the royal gynaecologist is absolutely convinced that Kate is in peak condition,” said the source.

The news follows months of speculation that the couple has been eager to have a child, and in a previous interview William refused to confirm or deny reports of a pregnancy.

“You won’t get anything out of me. Tight lipped. I am just very keen to have a family and both Catherine and I, you know, are looking forward to having a family in the future,” he had said.

Meanwhile, sources say Middleton doesn’t keep a housekeeper, chef or stylist and enjoys fulfilling her role as an officer’s wife.

“Kate makes recipes she learned from her mother. She brings a sense of ordinariness that William has always craved,” said the source.

Rumours about the couple expecting a child have been circulating since just months after their wedding. While earlier reports suggested that Middleton could not conceive due to her being underweight, fresh accounts are quoting confident sources saying that “it’s finally happened because they have been trying”.

    This story is ridiculous. No woman, who was due to do a tour of the Pacific like she is in the next few weeks, would want to run the risk of morning sickness whilst she was away. By Christmas time I might have believd you.

    Well this is a momentous occasion. If its a boy he will be the future king of England, lord of Commonwealth and protector of British pakistanis (on whose remittances the economy is running)

    @Sir King Kong Bunty:
    You realize if it’s a girl it’ll be in the same position, except as queen instead of king.

    More to the point, as unimportant as people will agreeable think this is, you can bet it’ll be all over the news!

    Isn’t reaching out to someone’s bedroom is worse than what Maya Khan did at some public park? And what to say about such editorial insight which gives a green signal to stories which news agencies like IANS issue to feed third-class tabloids.
