After a brief hiatus, the rumor mill once again is buzzing with reports that Prince William got Kate Middleton pregnant with the future heir(ess) to the throne.

The reason for the most recent speculation? A conspicuous clutch!

When Kate joined her in-laws at a concert at Royal Albert Hall benefiting the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry and the Prince's Trust, all eyes were on the Duchess ... specifically her lower belly region, which was covered up! OMG!

Kate Middleton, Clutch

Like the entire cast of Grey's Anatomy holding pillows and plates of food and sitting down a lot and being shown from the neck up, Kate is OBVIOUSLY pregnant, right?

Not so fast.

Middleton cinched a $99 lace-accented Zara sheath (which is already sold out, naturally) with a wide black belt, but when Kate was holding her purse off to the side, instead of in front, her waistline looked as tiny as always.

So ... that's pretty much that.

The ever-stylish princess also wore a black Ralph Lauren jacket, black tights and heels, BTW. She's very pretty and was recently named Britain's Best Dressed.

Kate Middleton and Prince William will spend the holidays together with both of their families, and her sister Pippa will be invited to the royals' Boxing Day retreat, to boot!

The 29-year-old Duke and Duchess will spend the actual holiday with William's family, but the entire week before will be spent with her sister Pippa and the Middletons.

Pippa, 27, will then join her big sister for Boxing Day (Dec. 26) in Sandringham, Norfolk, where the royals hold an annual pheasant hunting competition. Lock and load!

  • Kate Middleton, Figure
  • So Pip

"It will be the first Christmas Catherine is away from her family, so having Pippa come on Boxing Day is just part of making [Kate] feel comfortable and for her to share the holiday with her own family," an insider said. "It's something William wanted."

Nice guy, that Will.

Kate, William and Pippa "will then all travel together back to Bucklebury and spend the remaining days of Christmas with the other Middleton family members."

In early 2012, William will be deployed to the Falkland Islands for six weeks. He'll join a Royal Air Force crew as part of his training as a Search and Rescue pilot.

Hopefully Pip can keep Kate Middleton company then, as well.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are joining forces in their official new roles as ambassadors to the British Olympic and Paralympic teams.

Sadly, Pippa Middleton is not royalty and thus, will not be participating along with the aforementioned, adorable trio. She remains royally cute, however.

The Royals are part of a group of 27 other ambassadors named from among Britain's most inspirational and accomplished Olympians from previous games.

  • Wills
  • Kate Middleton, Hat
  • Ginger

In the cuteness department, team Great Britain has already won gold.

"Catherine, Harry and I are honored" and "hugely looking forward to an incredible sporting competition, but are also looking beyond next summer's games to the springboard it will provide for future success and excellence," William said in a statement.

"London hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will inspire so many people – particularly the young – to be the best they can be," he added.

Kate Middleton was dubbed the "People's Princess" earlier this year when she became the first commoner to marry an heir to the British throne in centuries.

On Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester) is getting ready to do the same on January 30, as she is engaged to Louis, the Prince of Monaco.

Meester was seen on the street filming in her wedding dress ... a runaway bride perhaps? Or filming a dream sequence? Impossible to say for another two months.

What you can say now is whether Gossip Girl fashion compares to the real deal! Whose wedding dress do you like better, Kate's or Blair's? Vote below!

Is Kate Middleton pregnant? Needless to say, we highly doubt it, but we've now read three different celebrity tabloid reports to that effect in as many days.

In this one, the Duchess collapsed no less!

The Star cover story, citing a "palace tattletale," says the mother-to-be and Prince William, who wed on April 29, are expecting, and she's had complications.

Kate Middleton Collapses!

An ambulance was called, if you believe the magazine, after William found his spouse of six months unconscious on the floor. The stock photo is so convincing.

Not surprisingly, almost no one believes the bombshells of the past week, which include In Touch matter-of-factly saying she's preggers and Us' more carefully worded story about Kate being "ready for baby" or some such nonsense.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman has called past tabloid reports "absurd" and "certainly not true," but you have to wonder what prompted this week's deluge.

It's not the first time Star made Kate Middleton pregnant. In June 2010, the magazine reported that she was expecting a baby ... before even getting engaged.

BTW, if the baby is a girl, the couple will name her Diana. Obvi.

Celebrity news weeklies really want to make Kate Middleton pregnant.

A day after Life & Style emphatically declared that Prince William and Duchess Catherine are six weeks along, Us Weekly is getting in on the fake baby action with their latest cover story ... albeit with more careful wording.

She is totes ready for baby, people. Note lack of the word "pregnant" ...

Ready For Baby!

Apparently the happy royal newlyweds are ready for a baby ... though Will's upcoming overseas deployment is putting their marriage of six months to the test.

According to Us' reports, Kate wants a boy AND a girl! Who wouldn't! Kate is said to be "preparing" to be a first-time mother ... whatever the hell that could mean.

We've heard that she's been actively trying (hot!) to get pregnant, and seen her grab her belly a lot (cute), and even refuse peanuts (!!). All in the last few weeks.

William and Kate, both 29, have had so many baby rumors published about them at this point, one wonders if the general public even pays attention anymore.

Regardless, the tabloid baby train is roaring full speed ahead! ALL ABOARD!

Kate Middleton is around six weeks pregnant with their first child, according to celebrity gossip magazine In Touch, citing a royal source that's allegedly well connected.

Is it true? We've heard it all before - quite recently in fact - so we say no. Especially since the palace specifically promised to break any such news first, with no leaks.

But hey, she sure is glowing and holding her belly a lot, so there's that:

A Royal Baby!

According to the insider (who has correctly revealed other "secrets," including their honeymoon location and the queen’s wedding gift), she is "definitely" pregnant.

That settles it then.

“Since before they even got married, it’s been made clear to William and Kate that having children should be their number-one priority,” the royal source reveals.

Queen Elizabeth II, in particular, has supposedly been dropping hints about wanting a great-grandchild - and an heir to the throne. Now she's supposedly "elated."

Even with Kate early in the first trimester, they’re said to have already started planning with nurseries in each of their three residences, and by picking names.

Now that their first born child will inherit the throne regardless of gender, Prince William, who was famously close to his mother, is said to be hoping for a girl.

Don't expect a baby at all in nine months, but that's a cute made-up anecdote. Nice to see fabricated Kate Middleton pregnancy stories are getting sappier.

Is Kate Middleton pregnant? We doubt it, given photo and anecdotal evidence.

Is she trying to get pregnant? That we cannot say with the same certainty!

"There have been reports to the contrary worldwide, but the fact is that the Duchess of Cambridge is not pregnant," insisted a royal aide close to Prince William and Kate Middleton. "Does she hope to be soon? I should say so."

So ... does that mean what we think it means?

Possibly not. There's another factor that could delay any royal family expansion.

"Prince William will be on active military duty in the Falkland Islands early next year, and there is no earthly way he would be assigned 8,000 miles from home if the Duchess of Cambridge were expecting," explained a second palace insider.

That does make sense, to wait until the timing is right.

But the first source insists the time is right now:

Does passing on peanuts really mean Kate Middleton is pregnant?

The pregnancy rumor mill began turning hard last week when the 29-year-old Duchess declined to sample peanut paste during a UNICEF visit to Denmark.

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 ...

Naturally, coupled with the belly touching seen below, this sparked major royal baby speculation. But a royal insider says (shockingly) it may not be the case.

  • Kate Middleton, Belly
  • Kate With William

"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."

What a fair, valid and seemingly obvious explanation. No fun!

A spokesman for the couple says that the policy is "to never confirm or deny [pregnancy] rumors," but a palace insider insists: "If and when there is an announcement to make, officially, it will be made by the palace as soon as it's safe to."

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

Is Kate Middleton pregnant? People sure seem to think so.

Whether there's anything to the rumors, we can't say, but just days after she ignited Bump Watch 2011 by declining peanut paste - a food expectant mothers are told to avoid - new photos have emerged of Kate (gasp!) holding her stomach!

Also interestingly, the Palace has yet to deny the rumors.

  • Kate With William
  • Kate Middleton, Belly

Visiting a UNICEF distribution center in Copenhagen, Denmark, last week, Kate was seen patting and rubbing her midsection, which was covered by a chic red coat.

"It was very odd," an onlooker at the UNICEF event told the Daily Mail.

"Kate would not stop touching her tummy. It was very noticeable. She continually patted it and held her hands against it. She must have been doing it without realizing, and at one point she had both her hands cradling her stomach."

The Kate Middleton pictures above don't prove anything, but until there is an official comment, the buzz surrounding the Duchess' womb will likely continue unabated.

If she is pregnant right now, he or she will rule.
