Their first royal wedding anniversary is on April 29.
They just shelved plans for a trip to Africa later this year.
Their friends are having kids, being in their late 20s/early 30s and all.
They're making family-friendly renovations to their home at Kensington.
All of this means absolutely nothing, but just the same, it's enough for many to assume that babies are on the brain for Kate Middleton and Prince William.
People's new cover story is devoted entirely to this topic, as a matter of fact.
The fast-approaching anniversary and Palace's recent sensitivity to the subject have led to a new round of Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors, and veteran royal watchers believe the couple is poised to start a family sooner rather than later.
When the time comes, "they are ready for a baby," an insider says.
Although they are unlikely to announce a pregnancy before the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration (marking 60 years on the throne) this summer, like any couple, "they will let nature and life take its course," adds a royal source.
In particular, watching their friends become parents "does help" boost William and Kate's decision to follow suit, a family insider says. So ... who's got November 15 in the Kate pregnancy announcement pool? Mark it down, baby.
