Royal ‘sources’ have been speaking to British magazines and claiming that Kate Middleton is six weeks pregnant. The unconfirmed rumours claim that the royal couple are already considering possible names, and will opt for something traditional like Edward or Michael for a boy or Alice for a girl.
If the news is true, it’s unlikely to be confirmed any time soon. The royal family will probably want to ensure that all is well before an official announcement is made, so it might be early 2012 before there’s confirmation of the rumours.
The latest claims were made to In Touch magazine, which says that William is hoping for a daughter. Rules were recently changed to allow the first-born to take the throne regardless of gender, which means that William and Kate’s first child will one day become Britain’s monarch.
