Kate Middleton Pregnant Rumors Most Likely False; but Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William to Stay in Kensington Palace

Reports over the past few weeks have claimed Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant with twins.

The Royal Family hasn’t confirmed or made any comment about the matter. Star magazine has claimed that she was pregnant, but offered no concrete evidence other than unnamed sources. Life & Style magazine claimed she was “98 pounds and pregnant” and OK! magazine claimed she was pregnant with twins.

Kate was also spotted late last month drinking alcohol with Prince William, meaning she’s most likely not pregnant. “Nice,” she said of the alcohol she was drinking at a distillery in Scotland, according to E! Online. “I like them.

Another report–not related to the pregnancy rumors–is saying Middleton was seeking to move out of Kensington Palace. Middleton wanted to raise Prince George at Anmer Hall located at Queen Elizabeth’s Sandrigham estate. “Apparently the idea of raising her kids in a quiet, peaceful setting nearly 100 miles outside of London is really appealing to the duchess. We already know that Kate seems to have a pretty clear cut idea of the kind of mother that she is aiming to be and it’s nothing like the royals that have come before her,” according to Celebrity Dirty Laundry.

However, UK tabloid reports on Tuesday say Prince William and Kate are going to stay in Kensington Palace after all.

“Kensington Palace will be the Duke and Duchess’s home for many years to come, including when he becomes Prince of Wales,” a royal aide told The Express. “I don’t think we know for sure what will happen to Clarence House but I think we’ve always said Buckingham Palace will remain the monarch’s residence.”

Last week, the Duchess of Cambridge has tried her hand at code-breaking as she opened a museum at Bletchley Park, Britain’s famed World War II deciphering center.

Kate sat at a desk and succeeded in decoding a Morse code message as she toured the center, which has been restored with an 8 million-pound ($13.6 million) lottery fund.

The royal has a family link to the park: Her paternal grandmother, Valerie Glassborow, was a civilian staff member there during WWII.

Code-breakers at Bletchley Park were credited with shortening the war by breaking German cypher systems — code-named Enigma and Lorenz.

The site fell into disrepair after the war, but a year-long project has restored its wartime appearance and added exhibitions and visitor facilities.
