The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are keen to start a family, but when you're royalty, these things require planning ... and generate major buzz.
Kate Middleton's womb status is the subject of more speculation than who will portray Christian and Ana in 50 Shades of Grey. Everyone's got a theory.
While last week's Kate Middleton baby bump "reveal" looks like it was a false alarm (stunning), a source now says her pregnancy is - gasp! - being talked about!
"There's a window in place," a royal insider tells Us Weekly, adding that Kate and Prince William are hoping to conceive their first-born child anytime between the final leg of their royal tour in September 2012 and Summer 2013.
If that sounds rigid ... it is. But "they're so excited!" says the source.
This summer, the duo will be the de facto emcees for the 2012 Olympics held in London, and will be taking a royal Asia-Pacific tour in September ... but sounds like they will be having a LOT of fun after that!
Their ideal scenario, supposedly? A New Year Day's announcement, with the glowing Duchess just hitting the three-month mark in her pregnancy.
No pressure, Kate.
