Kate Middleton Pregnant

As the couple approach their first wedding anniversary, speculation about a royal bun-in-the-oven is at a fever pitch!

As soon as Prince William, 29, and 30-year-old Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, married on April 29, 2011, the world has been on a royal baby bump watch. But that time might finally be here! Insiders say the couple are preparing for a little one, according to People.

If history repeats itself — both Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana were pregnant before reaching their first wedding anniversary — then Prince William and Kate will be trying for an heir as soon as possible.

“Continuity of the monarchy depends on William producing an heir,” veteran royal watcher Judy Wade tells the magazine. “And a baby would put a seal on William and Kate’s happiness.”

Although the palace remains mum, a Palace source reveals that the couple have put plans for a trip to Africa on hold. The reason remains unclear, but many medical experts agree that the vaccinations required for travel to Africa are dangerous to a fetus.

Even more significant, several of the couple’s close pals now have kids. Watching friends become parents “does help” boost William and Kate’s decision to start a family, a family source reveals.

But don’t get your hopes up for an announcement quite yet. Royal watchers say it’s unlikely Kate will overshadow the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration in June with a pregnancy announcement.

However, there’s doubt the couple is ready for a family. “They are very, very much in love,” a family friend says. “Kate is a great supporter of her husband, and he is fantastically protective of her.”

“Like any couple, they will let nature and life take its course,” another royal insider says. “It will be a joint decision, and they will make it when they’re ready.”

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Is there a royal baby on the way?

there is no royal baby on the way.

and there wont be until next year.

its a busy year for the brits, olympics and queens jubillee.

next year we will prb see a royal heir, but not this year for sure.

kate still has a good healthy 4 years for which to have children so there really isnt a rush right know.

let them enjoy their first wedding anniversary without being pestered for goodness sake!!

Did you get the memo from Kensington Palace. ” There is no baby and no she is Not repeat NOT having to make a announcement this year” there is no baby.

Diana had to have a child because Charles is next in line to the Throne
Same reason the Queen had bore her children..Charles not William is
Next in line and Charles,has the heir and the spare William and Harry
Get it now no children. Announcement this year so shut up tabloids!

This is the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year, William and Catherine would not do anything to overshadow this, so no there will be no royal pregnancy announcement just yet. This is the Queen’s time right now.

I wish they would just leave the poor girl alone! Every time I turn my head theres another ad out. I can just imagine how much it pisses them both off. Just because they are married, doesnt mean there going to have children, or children right away. I say let them be a married couple for a few years, then have children.

Age ain’t nothing but a number for these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! He is almost 10 years older than I. We met via ~~Agelessmeet .COM~~ a nice place for younger women and older men, or older women and younger men, to interact with each other! Maybe you wanna check it out or tell your friends :)
