Is Kate Middleton pregnant again? It may been just a well-meaning comment made by Prince William, but he set the royal rumor mill in motion just the same.
The alleged hint about baby #2 came as he told a New Zealand woman who made a gift for his son, Prince George: "You might have to make another one soon."
William made the remark to Cynthia Read, who had knitted them a shawl for their son on behalf of the New Zealand government. Read said afterward:
"The way William said it was like he was dropping a hint, letting me in on a secret."
It would be surprising if we didn't see Kate Middleton pregnant again before too long. They duo has made no secret of their desire give their 8-month-old a sibling.
But William also said at a St. Patrick's Day parade last month that "one's enough for now" and his remark to Read may not have implied a specific "soon."
"Maybe," she replied when asked if he was really hinting at that. "I couldn't possibly comment. Obviously if I'm asked to do another one I would be honored."
Read, 61, spent four months making the shawl before meeting the royal couple on the north island of New Zealand, where they drew massive crowds.
She said the Duchess was very pleased and flattered by the gift:
"Kate told me they were really happy with it and George wore it a lot. She apologized for not so far finding an appropriate event outdoors to wrap him in it."
"I shouldn't think he will wear it much more as he is nearly a little boy," she said, adding, "It was wonderful to meet them, they were a charming couple."
