William & Kate's Baby Heartbreak: Royal Couple May Not Be Able To Conceive!

Kate’s new mother-in-law Camilla has been telling friends the royal bride has fertility problems which may prevent her from getting pregnant — according to sources.

If the claims are true, the newlyweds are facing up to the fact that they may never produce an heir to the British throne!

“Health complications from Kate‘s adolescence raised red flags that may have an impact on her ability to conceive,” sources close to Camilla have told In In Touch Magazine.

The consequences would be devastating for the British monarchy. Both William, 28, and his father Prince Charles were born soon after their parents married, and the royal couple are under intense pressure to produce an heir soon.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton tells In Touch, “If Kate is not pregnant within the next nine months, she’ll be defying 200 years of British tradition.”

The last reining monarch to die without producing a legitimate heir was Will’s great-great-great-great-great uncle King William IV, more than 170 years ago!

If William does indeed die heir-less, the throne would defer to the eldest of his younger brother Harry.

Unlike most couples, adoption isn’t an option for William and Kate, 29 — only a biological child can be heir to the throne.

But sources tell In Touch the Duke and Duchess chose to ignore Kate’s medical problems for a marriage “based on love.”
