Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is planning to have two more children after she gives birth next year, says a tabloid report.
The report, published by Globe magazine–which has a very spotty record on this sort of thing–cites unnamed sources for its information on Kate’s alleged plans.
Any report from Globe, a supermarket tabloid, should be taken with a grain of salt.
“If Kate has her way she’ll be the mom of four royal babies by the time she turns 36. She is determined. She refuses to be beaten down by the crippling illness condition that has laid her low twice now. She wants two more children after this pregnancy and she will put up with vomiting and severe dehydration to complete their family,” the alleged insider told Globe, via Celeb Dirty Laundry.
It also says that Prince William is “terrified” and Queen Elizabeth II is in favor of the plans.
It seems highly unlikely that Kate will want to have two more children because she’s 32 years old and by the time her next child is born, she’ll be 33 (her birthday is Jan. 9).
She also has had severe morning sickness–hyperemesis gravidarum–in each of her two pregnancies. Based on her recent public appearances, Kate appears to be doing much better.
Also, Prince William and Kate are planning to take a trip to New York in December to promote their latest charity. According to the Daily Mail–which first broke the story–it appears “likely” Prince George will be brought with the couple.
The royal family issued a statement about the couple’s plans next month.
“The charitable themes will include promoting sustainable conservation issues with a particular focus on collaborative working to tackle the illegal wildlife trade, and also supporting organisations which reflect Their Royal Highnesses’ interest in young people’s mental health and the importance supporting disadvantaged young people from an early age,” the statement reads.
“On Monday evening, Their Royal Highnesses will attend an NBA Basketball game to help launch a new collaboration between the Royal Foundation, United for Wildlife and the NBA,” it adds.
