Kate Middleton Adopting

As their one year wedding anniversary approches, the royal couple are ready for kids!

Besides trying for kids of their own, Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are looking into opening their home — er, palace — to a less fortunate child, OK! magazine reports. “It’s something they’ve spoken about a lot,” a member of their inner circle reveals.

Although they’ve been enjoying life as newlyweds, the couple are ready to start a family. “Kate’s 30, so she realizes they need to get started,” the insider says.

“Their priority is to have heirs of their own to ascend the throne,” a royal insider explains. “But afterward, they feel there is nothing to stop them from doing such a beautiful and humane thing as adopting a child. Being royals, they travel all over the world in a charity capacity and see so much need. It’s really affected them both.”

Surprisingly, Prince William’s father, Prince Charles, likes the idea. “They have spoken about it to Prince Charles, who says there is no reason why they can’t do it,” the insider says. “He thinks it’s a splendid idea.”

Even Queen Elizabeth isn’t against it. “The queen does admire her grandson’s giving heart,” the insider reveals. “As long as they do have at least two heirs to the throne first, the queen would likely give her blessing.”
