Kate Middleton Pregnant? Rumors Heat Up and Prince William, Duchess of Cambridge Plan Long August Vacation

The rumors saying that Kate Middleton is pregnant are increasing in the last couple weeks as several new aspects of the story have recently popped up.

Although the Duchess of Cambridge and husband Duke of Cambridge William, toured the Tower of London poppies(meant to commemorate World War I victims) this week, they are taking most of August off.

The pair usually fly to the private island of Mustique for vacation, but are planning on staying closer to home this time, reported Vanity Fair.

Sources said that they were planning on taking Prince George to Scotland to see Charles and Camilla at their Highland home, and will also take the young prince to see the Queen and Prince Philip at Balmoral.

The rest of the time will be spent in Norfolk, where final refurbishments are being made at their country home, Anmer Hall, on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. The hall has 10 bedrooms, a tennis court, and swimming lessons, and Kate is involved personally with the renovations.

“They will be at Anmer for much of the time they have off,” a source said. “They cannot wait to move in and they want to make sure the last stages of the refurb go as planned.”

Some say that the long vacation supports the rumors of Kate being pregnant.

The report noted that the vacation officially started after the WWI memorial event. 

At that event, Kate appeared to keep her purse in front of her stomach for some time, helping renew the pregnancy rumors.

The Globe recently reported that Kate actually suffered a miscarriage recently, but that she wants to keep trying and have three kids in about five years time.

made by Kate’s childhood friend, Jessica Hay, which was refuted by Kensington Palace. Hay said that she was pregnant with a second child a few days ago.

A spokesperson with the Palace told ET Canada that Kate and Hay haven’t spoken in “many years.”

“Australia’s New Day reports that the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her second child, based on information that has come from Kate’s former friend Jessica Hay. But, ET Canada has learned from Kensington Palace that the Duchess has not spoken to Jessica Hay for very many years,'” ET Canada said in a report last week.

The spokesperson also said Kate “is not in contact with her at all.”
