Kate Middleton Pregnant Rumors Keep Going; Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William Schedule Now Includes a Wedding Date in Italy

Kate Middleton and husband Prince William will attend a lavish wedding in Italy next month amid rumors claiming Middleton is pregnant or recently had a miscarriage.

The rumors have steadily increased over the past few months and got even bigger as a former family friend claimed that Middleton recently had a miscarriage.

The Princess of Duchess fueled the rumors more by seemingly covering her stomach by holding her purse in front of it last week at a World War I memorial event.

There’s no official word whether Kate is pregnant or not, though most are in agreement that she and her husband want at least another child at some point.

The pair, along with Prince George, are on vacation for the rest of the month, spending time with their parents and away from the press.

But it has emerged that they, along with Prince Harry, will be at the wedding of good friend Charlie Gilkes in Italy next month, according to Vanity Fair.

“The upcoming wedding will be in Italy and is set to be quite an event, even though plans for the party are currently shrouded in secrecy,” it reported.

“The groom, Charlie Gilkes is an alum of Eton with more than a decade’s exprience running nightclubs and launching restaurants, including Mr Fogg’s and Bunga Bunga in London. He certainly knows how to throw a good bash. I’m told his gorgeous P.R. fiancée Anneke von Trotha Taylor is overseeing the V.I.P. guestlist.”

“The [Cambridges] are really looking forward to it and William and Kate are planning to leave Prince George with Kate’s parents so they can go and have a good time,” a friend said.
