Carole Middleton is very much looking forward to daughter Kate starting a family, especially as speculation over when the Duchess of Cambridge will get pregnant has been rife ever since her wedding day last year.
But the UK’s ‘Now’ magazine is running a story which says that Carole Middleton let slip the news to a friend last week that Kate (30) and Prince William (29) are about to start trying for a baby.
‘Carole said Kate isn’t pregnant yet but wants to start trying soon,’ an insider told the magazine.
This news, if it’s true, would fly in the face of what Royal commentators have previously insisted: that the couple wouldn’t try for a baby until 2013 because of the London Olympics and a host of other engagements this year, in particular the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Kate was previously thought keen not to eclipse the occasion with baby news of her own.
But set against that are worries of Kate’s age. So, it seems like we may be hearing the pitter patter of tiny Royal feet soon after all – or at least news of a Kate Middleton pregnancy.
