Does passing on peanuts really mean Kate Middleton is pregnant?

Although Kate Middleton is not allergic to peanuts, pregnant women are often advised to avoid peanut products to prevent allergies in their babies-to-be. So ...

"She's not comfortable eating in front of cameras," the insider said. "What if she didn't like it and made a face? That expression would then be on every newspaper."

Long story short ... don't hold your breath for it anytime soon.
