If the report is true, Kate Middleton’s and Prince William’s hands are about to be very full next spring! While the Kensington Palace announced in September that the Duke and Duchess are expecting baby number three, a new report claims they’re actually preparing to welcome their third and fourth child together.
“Kate and William were both shocked when they found out,” an alleged royal insider toldLife & Style magazine. Those close to the couple are even reportedly claiming that not only are Kate and William expecting twins in April, but that the babies are both girls — and they’re identical!
The first people to find out about Kate and William’s double baby joy, according to the publication, were Kate’s mom Carole Middleton and Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton.
“She excitedly called to tell them the news,” the source shared. How sweet is that?
William has previously said, “It is fantastic having a lovely little family,” while Kate’s gushed in the past, “Becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience.”
So far, no names have been decided on. However, the royals do have a list of girls’ names they like. One thing seems certain though – “they don’t plan to coordinate them.”
While most parents like to dress identical twins alike, Kate has apparently made it clear that she wants her daughters to “be individuals and allowed to develop their own personalities.” In terms of names, right now they’re reportedly discussing classic monikers such as “Victoria, Alice, Olivia, Alexandra, and Elizabeth.”
Already proud parents of Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, we think those names will fit right in! Although the baby/babies’ due date isn’t until April, Kate and William have already began preparing the nursery.
“The twins will sleep in separate bedrooms but will share a playroom with George and Charlotte,” the insider explained. On top of that, Kate is apparently determined to remain a hands-on mom — even while tackling four children under five!
#DAY2: The future king showed up with mom Kate Middleton to cheer on his dad, Prince William, in a polo match on Sunday, reported People magazine. Prince George looked absolutely adorable in red dungarees with a white polo-shirt. He totally owned the look as he tried chasing after a ball, took a few wobbly steps and even tried to crawl for it away from Mommy Middleton.
“William thinks Kate is being unrealistic, and is trying to convince her to hire someone else,” the insider added. “He fears Kate will be taking on too much once the twins are born, especially as the couple will continue to balance family life and royal duties.”
Twins or not, it’s clear Kate and William will be very busy next year. And we can’t wait to find out more!
