So, not so long ago it was confirmed that Kate Middleton (aka The Duchess of Cambridge) is pregnant with baby no. 2. Firstly, congratulations, best wishes for both mother and baby.
Now that politeness is out of the way, let me be a bitch for a bit and say that, again, Kate has been diagnosed with HG (same illness she suffered with George) and she’s being treated at Kensignton Palace. And now, it’s up in the air her first solo trip, which would be a 2 day trip to Malta representing the Queen on Malta’s 50th anniversary of Independence.
If you excuse me, I’d say she should go. She had no trouble flying to an island getaway with William during her first pregnancy, she should not have problems with just working 2 days.
Quite a while ago, I saw an article on Star Magazine (and I freely admit I side eyed the source) that claimed that Kate wanted 3 children before she was 35. I think I might have posted the link somewhere on Royal Dish and said, well, assuming it’s true, she’ll be announcing a pregnancy before this year’s end. Lo and behold I was right.
She’s 32 and will be 33 by the time the new baby is born, so if the article is correct, it means she will either be pregnant again by the end of 2015 or early 2016. Now, let’s say she again falls ill with HG, she’ll probably be out of commission for a while and probably (unless she ramps up her amount of engagements after birth) she’ll be in the longest maternity leave ever.
Oh and remember Jessica Hay? The girl who correctly said there would be an announcement coming (when Kate was expecting George)? Well, she seems to have done it again, either she guessed correctly or she was told that Kate was pregnant but Kensignton shot down those rumors of a new pregnancy. Cue a couple weeks later, surprise, Kate is pregnant!
Anyway, here’s part of a news article I found, I’d let you be the judge on the rest:
Friends have suggested the Duchess has decided to have her second child so soon after her first because a third child is in her plans.
Kate Middleton decided to have two children less than two years apart because she intends to have a third child before she is 35, friends have claimed.
